Cook Time
  • 1lbs ground beef
  • 1/4cup parsleychopped
  • 1clove garlicminced
  • 2tsp paprika
  • 1/2tsp Cumin
  • 3Tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 1/3cup bread crumbs
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1pinch salt & peper
  • 1Tbsp Oilfor frying
  • 12 cinnamon sticks
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the ground beef, parsley, garlic, paprika, cumin, sunflower seeds, bread crumbs, eggs, salt and pepper. Mix well using your hands (I suggest using latex gloves).
  2. Roll a piece of meat slightly larger than a golf ball in your palm to make it smooth. Poke a cinnamon stick into the meat and squeeze until it covers about half of the cinnamon stick evenly.
  3. Bring a large frying pan to medium heat. Add olive oil and the kabobs. Try to avoid crowding the pan.
  4. Fry for about 3 minutes, then flip. The meat should release easily from the pan. If not, it’s not ready to flip. Wait 30 seconds and try again. Cook the kabobs for about 2 minutes on all sides until it is evenly browned and cooked through.
  5. I served this with brown basmati rice, a fresh lemony cucumber salad and a purple cabbage slaw.
