Kebab Digi (Pan Kebabs)

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Beef

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Ground beef
  • 1 md Onion; grated, (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 ts Pepper
  • 1/2 ts Ground cumin
  • 1/4 ts Baking soda


Mix everything together and let sit for several hours, overnight, or for
just a few minutes. Oil a shallow metal baking dish, put the kebab mixture
into the pan and flatten out to about 3/4 inch thick. Then separate the
meat with a spatula into strips 1 inch wide and 5 inches long. Leave 1/2
inch space between the strips. (to simulate meat on skewers) Broil for
about 6 minutes, turning over once.Serve warm with rice.

NOTES : Makes 4-5 pan kebabs.This recipe is found in Sephardic Cooking by
Copeland Marks in the chapter on Persia. It says in part "...kebabs are
essentially lightly seasoned meats, marinated as long as is
convenient, and grilled over the hot ashes of charcoal. The meat can be
prepared in advance, refrigerated or not, and grilled for family or
friends when wanted." I never use the extra oil and would never consider
not using refrigeration but it's a great last minute standby. I don't know
what the baking soda is for. Preservative? Tenderizer?
