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.

Turkish Ground-Lamb Pizzas Recipe

Michael Turek

The Hummus Recipes Kitchen (The Home of Middle Eastern Food Recipes) invites you to try Turkish Ground-Lamb Pizzas Recipe.  Enjoy the good taste of Middle Eastern Food and learn how to make Turkish Ground-Lamb Pizzas.

At her takeout shop in Istanbul, Kantin Dükkan, Semsa Denizsel tops her pizzas with ground lamb (flavored with sweet sun-dried tomatoes and a little spicy red pepper), but you can substitute ground beef instead. To make the pizza even more substantial, bake it with an egg on top; the runny yolk is terrific with the whole-wheat crust.

Yield: 4
Total: 1 Hour, 40 Minutes

Ingredients


1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup warm water $
1/2 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil $
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing $
1 (small) onion, finely chopped $
1 pound ground lamb or beef
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt
Freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, chopped, drained $
1 tablespoon Turkish red pepper paste (see Note) or 2 jarred hot cherry peppers, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
4 large eggs, (optional)
2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley leaves

Preparation

In a small bowl, whisk the whole wheat flour with the all-purpose flour and salt. In a large bowl, combine the warm water and honey. Sprinkle the yeast over the water and let stand for about 5 minutes, until foamy. Stir in the olive oil and then the flour mixture. Gently knead the dough on a work surface until it forms a smooth, somewhat sticky ball. Lightly oil another bowl and add the dough. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
 

In a skillet, heat the 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat until translucent, 4 minutes. Add the lamb and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook over moderately high heat, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until the lamb is no longer pink, 3 minutes. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, red pepper paste and cumin and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper.
 

Preheat the oven to 450°. Arrange oven racks on the top and bottom thirds of the oven. Preheat a large rimmed baking sheet in the oven for about 5 minutes.
 

On a lightly floured work surface, punch down the dough and cut into 4 pieces. Roll each piece into a 6-inch round. Arrange the dough rounds on the preheated baking sheet, about 1 inch apart. Bake on the bottom shelf of the oven for 2 minutes. Spread the lamb topping over the dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edges; brush the borders with olive oil. Crack an egg in the center of each pizza (if using) and bake on the top shelf of the oven for about 6 minutes, until the crust is crisp on the bottom, the egg white is firm and the yolk is runny. Scatter the parsley over the pizzas and serve hot.

Note: Turkish red pepper paste, also known as biber salcasi, is available at specialty stores.
