Grilled these today at a family barbeque. I mixed 2pounds ground lamb with 1 pound of ground turkey. Everyone loved them. There were no leftovers to take home. Next time I make them, I will try them with a yogurt sauce.
Love this recipe! Make sure your grill is well-oiled and I try to only turn once to help them from falling apart. So good though.
Love this recipe! I'm Armenian and this is the best I've had. I pretty much double the spices and it turns out delish!
Love the seasoning of the meat--didn't have to adjust them at all. I've tried this with 1/2 lamb 1/2 beef and also with ground turkey and it's great any which way. Didn't have any issues with the skewers (I used wooden instead of metal) and out of convenience ended up baking them instead of grilling.
Amazing recipe for a delicious dish. These are scrumptious kebabs. Incredible blend of flavors. Goes so well with the suggested Greek salad and the bulgar. Every time I've made this dinner, my wife (and mother-in-law and my toddler son) have been blown away. I will continue to make this dish. It's easy but also appropriate for special occasions.
Mine fell apart also on the skewers. Making patties is a much better idea. They are very moist with interesting flavors. I paired it with some chutney and loved it.
This recipe is wonderful. I scaled down the meat to 2lbs and we didn't bother to skewer the meat, shaping instead into logs and bbqing that way. We will probably just do patties next time for convenience. Be sure to make the bulgur pilaf and save some leftovers for the bulgar kebab burritos - delicious!
This was a good, delicious meal. Because my boyfriend eats meat and I don't, I split the meal in half: 1 lb ground beef and 1 lb. ground soy "meat." It turned out great! We both enjoyed our own style of meat. I also grilled it on an electric, indoor grill and it was fine. I made it with the side dishes that were also included in this Sunset article: Greek Salad and Bulgar Wheat with Spinach (except I used Cous-Cous). I would prepare this again.
Good flavor, but could not get the meat to stay on the skewer even after chilling. We made patties instead. The only change I made in the ingredients was scaling it down to make with 1 lb. of meat
