Default Kefta Burgers

Kefta Burgers

1 lb. ground beef (or any meat you like)
1 cup flat leaf parsley
1 cup onion
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp 7 spices
Burger buns
Kabees and tomatoes for garnish

Tahini Mayonnaise Sauce
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 clove minced garlic
1 tbs lemon juice
2 tbs tahini paste
1/4 tsp paprika (optional)

Onion Parsley Garnish
1/2 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
1/2 cup sliced onion
1 tbs sumac
1/2 tsp salt

In a food processor blend the onion and parsley until well blended, then add the ground meat, salt and 7 spices and blend until well combined. Form meat into 4 or 6 burgers and cook on grill or in a pan for 7-8 minutes. For the tahini mayonnaise sauce in a bowl combine the mayonnaise, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and paprika and set aside for topping. For onion parsley garnish in a bowl combine the onions, parsley, salt and sumac. To assemble the burgers, toast the buns and top both sides with tahini mayonnaise, add burger and top with onion/parsley then top with the other bun. Serve with kabeese and tomatoes.

There's a Middle Eastern restaurant near us that serves kefta. They make it into a hotdog-like shape and grill it, then serve it rolled up in pita with tomatoes, pickles, hummus and a sauce.

Deelady, what are 7 spices and what are kabees?

i think the 7 spice she is referring to is japanese 7 spice powder but i am not sure...

Quote:
seven-spice powder (shichimi togarashi) is a blend of hot red pepper, ground orange peel, sesame seeds, hemp seeds, poppy seeds, and ground nori seaweed, precisely seven ingredients to make a tasty and complex flavor.
as for kabees... sometimes i believe it is pickled turnip but lebanese food it is a mixture of olives

Deelady, what are 7 spices and what are kabees?

Sorry GG I never saw your questions...better late than never


7 spice mixture is often:

1 tablespoons ground black pepper
1 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cardamom

mix well and store in air tight container.

And Bams was right kabees is a pickles veggie mixture used as an condiment....I usually skip that myself.
