Tired of burgers? Try Kafta!

When I’m trying to limit my carbohydrate intake, I get bored really fast with the same old ground beef and chicken. Thank God for Middle Eastern spices and Kafta Kabobs.

Here’s the before and after:



These little dudes are so GD delicious. here’s the recipe from allrecipes.com.

4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 pound ground lamb
3 tablespoons grated onion
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
28 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes

It’s really as easy as adding all the spices to your meat in a bowl, mixing it all together, forming 2 inch tubes of meat ( doesn’t that sound appetizing!), and spearing them with the soaked skewers. I left my grill on medium to high heat and cooked for 5 minutes on each side.

I hope this breaks the usual cycle of boredom associated with low carb eating.
