Kufta is the Hebrew word for meatball, similar to Lebanese kofta or Greek kefta. Ground sumac has a reddish-purple color and lemony flavor, a great addition to spice rubs and vinaigrettes. If you can't find it, substitute 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind.


How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 8 ingredients in a large bowl. Add lamb and sirloin, stirring gently to combine. Shape lamb mixture into 18 meatballs. Thread 3 meatballs onto each of 6 (10-inch) skewers. Cup your hand around each meatball, gently shaping each into an oval around skewers.

Step 2

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Arrange skewers on pan. Grill 8 to 9 minutes or until done, turning occasionally.
