Persian Beef Kebabs or Koubideh (pron. Koo bee day)

2 lbs. Ground Beef, chuck
1 yellow onion, grated
2 tsp. toasted ground cumin
2-4 Tbl. Italian parsley, minced
Salt and pepper

  1. Place ground beef in food processor and process until it is softer and smooth.  Transfer to a bowl and knead in the rest of the ingredients.

    Test a small piece by sautéing it and taste for seasoning.
  2. Form into flat sausage shapes and let chill until firmed up a bit, 30 min at least. These can be shaped around flat metal skewers and grilled, as is traditional in Persian culture or done without the skewers at all.
  3. Lightly oil with grapeseed oil and grill on medium hot grill.
