Beef, Mains

Nassy Kofte

20140310-202326.jpgFYI: this is NOT an authentic recipe.  Makes about 30 kofte meatballs that aren’t dry.

  • 1 piece white bread diced small
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt thinned with milk to buttermilk consistency (or use buttermilk)
  • 1/2 lb ground pork
  • 1 lb ground beef chuck
  • 1 small white onion, diced in processor
  • 2 garlic cloves minced in processor
  • 1/4 bunch parsley minced in processor
  • 1 beaten egg
  • pinch cumin
  • salt

Mix the bread and yogurt together and let sit for 10 minutes.  Mix in all other ingredients.  Form into 1/3 inch flat, oblong shapes. Season with salt.   Broil them or fry in a skillet on the stove at 3-4 minutes a side. Make sure they are well done (no pink) since there is pork in them.

{notes to self: stove temp 5-6, took a long time to fry all in batches. broil this in a broiler pan next time -with the door open.  if omit pork, add 1 tsp gelatin bloomed in 2 tsp water for 5 min}
