Description

At home, we grill these all the time-a real family favorite. You can certainly make extra, and the kebobs can be frozen. That way, all you have to do is heat them up, and you've got a delicious meal in no time.

Ingredients
  • 1 large onion, minced
  • 4 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 pounds pound ground lamb or beef
  • 1 tablespoon Pluck Seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 6 wooden or metal skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30-60 minutes ahead of using)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint (optional)
Instructions
  1. Step 1

    Preheat a grill on high or, if using an oven, preheat to 450ºF

  2. Step 2

    In a medium bowl, combine the onion, parsley, lamb, Pluck, salt, pepper, and allspice. Use your hands to blend the ingredients well

  3. Step 3

    Working in small portions, shape the meat mixture into 6 long sausage shapes about 6 inches in length. Thread the meat on the skewers but keep bare 1 inch from the skewer tip. Squeeze and mold each kabob on the skewer

  4. Step 4

    If using a grill, lightly oil it with a paper towel., holding it with tongs. Place the kabobs on the grill and cook, turning periodically, for 4 to 5 minutes per side. Be careful not to overcook

  5. Step 5

    At home, we grill these all the time-a real family favorite. You can certainly make extra, and the kabobs can be frozen. That way, all you have to do is heat them up, and you've got a delicious meal in no time.

Note

We recommend using either Pluck Zesty Garlic, All-Purpose or Pure for this recipe.
