To Cook 0:50
INGREDIENTS 16
DIFFICULTY EASY
SERVINGS 6

Ingredients 


1.5kg boned lamb shoulder
2 teaspoons allspice
1/3 cup olive oil
1 baby cos lettuce heart, trimmed, leaves separated
400g tomato medley mix, halved
1 Lebanese cucumber, halved, sliced
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup torn fresh mint leaves
1/4 cup lemon juice
Lebanese bread, warmed, to serve

Lebanese garlic sauce 


6 garlic cloves, peeled, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 egg white
1 cup rice bran oil
2 tablespoons iced water

Method

Step 1
Place lamb in a shallow glass or ceramic dish. Add allspice and 1/4 cup oil. Rub to coat lamb all over. Cover. Refrigerate for 2 hours, if time permits.

Step 2
Make Lebanese garlic sauce: Place garlic, salt and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in a food processor. Process, scraping down sides often, until garlic is finely chopped. Add egg white. Process until smooth. With motor operating, gradually add half the oil in a slow steady stream. Then gradually add remaining lemon juice in a slow steady stream, followed by remaining oil. Gradually add iced water. Process until mixture is white and fluffy. Spoon into a bowl. Cover. Refrigerate until required.

Step 3
Preheat a barbecue chargrill (with hood) on medium-low. Cook lamb, fat-side down, for 15 minutes. Turn lamb. Cook, with barbecue hood closed, for 30 to 35 minutes for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil. Stand for 10 minutes.

Step 4

Step 5
Slice lamb. Serve with salad, Lebanese bread and garlic sauce.

 Notes

Cook's note: The garlic sauce makes double the amount you'll need, but can't be halved because of the egg white.

Lebanese garlic sauce: This Lebanese garlic sauce is known as toum, the Arabic word for garlic. It's particularly good with chicken, but also works with meat and vegetables.

Preparation time excludes 2 hours refrigeration time.

Kabab Koobideh Recipe



The Hummus Recipes Kitchen (The Home of Middle Eastern Food Recipes) invites you to try  Kabab Koobideh Recipe.  Enjoy the good taste of Middle Eastern Food and learn how to make  Kabab Koobideh.

4 Servings

Ingredients:


500 grams ground lamb or beef
2 large onions (grated)
1 large egg (beaten)
4 medium tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon sumac (optional)

Directions:


Mix meat, onions, egg, salt and pepper well and leave in the refrigerator overnight (or for several hours).

Press the meat around long, thick metal skewers and shape evenly. Thread whole tomatoes on another skewer. Barbeque each side for about five minutes, turning frequently. If skewers are not available or barbequing is not possible, kabab-e koobideh can be shaped into long, thin portions on aluminum foil and grilled at high temperature in the oven. The oven should be pre-heated and kabab-e koobideh should be placed as high as possible near the source of the heat.

Serve with hot Polow (Chelow) or on middle-eastern bread. If serving with rice, some sumac may be sprinkled on top. If kabab-e koobideh was made in an oven, the juice from the kabab can be poured on rice or bread.
