Lamb and Beef Koobideh Recipe


Lamb and beef koobideh is one of my favorite types of kebab. The blend of the beef and lamb is really unique and quite tender. Serve koobideh over white, saffron, or basmati rice with pita bread and olives.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 lb ground lamb
  • 1 large onion, grated
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon tumeric (optional)


In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, mixing with hands or wooden spoon. Refrigerate up to two hours, until ready to cook.

Take a handful of meat and roll into a tennis ball sized portion. Place on long, flat skewer and form into cigar shape, around the skewer. It will look like a sausage on the skewer.

Place on heated grill and cook for about 4-6 minutes on each side, or until done.
