Recipe: Beef Kofta served with Cous Cous

Mince is such a versatile product, from Spaghetti Bolognaise to rissoles to tacos. This recipe is for beef kofta (kebabs) which is a Middle Eastern dish and is a good alternative to hamburgers on the barbeque.


  • 1 kg grass fed beef mince
  • 1 brown onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1.5 tsp ground cumin
  • 1.5 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped mint
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander
  • 1 egg


  • Soak 12 bamboo skewers in cold water for at least an hour before use to prevent burning.
  • Combine mince, onion, garlic, juice, spices, nuts, herbs and egg in large bowl.
  • Roll heaped tablespoons of mixture into balls and thread three onto each skewer. Place skewers on a tray, cover, refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Cook beef kofta on heated oiled grill or barbeque until browned all over and cooked through.
  • Serve on a bed of  Cous Cous, accompanied by  yoghurt combined with cucumber.
