step-by-step directions
step-by-step directions
  • In a small bowl, combine the Oregano, Mint, Cardamom, Cumin, Cinnamon, Smoked Paprika, and Salt and mix thoroughly.
  • In a large bowl, combine the Beef, Lamb, Onions, Parsley, and Egg. Squeeze the Bread to remove most of the milk and add the Bread to the meat mixture; mix thoroughly to incorporate. Add the spice mixture to the Beef mixture and use your hands or a wooden spoon to combine the well.
  • Wet your hands with water and form 16 loosely packed patties about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, rolling the mixture into a ball between your hands and then gently patting each down to flatten to an even thickness. Place the patties on a parchment-lined baking sheet, pressing thumb into the center of each patty to form a small indentation.
  • Heat a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add a few tablespoons of Olive Oil, and arrange the Kofte in the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side for medium.
  • Serve warm with the Yogurt-Honey Dip.
  • For Yogurt-Honey Dip: Combine the ingredients in a bowl and stir until evenly combined. Adjust seasoning to taste. (Dip can be made ahead and stored in the fridge until ready to serve.
