Beef Kofta Wraps
These lovely kofta wraps are perfect for these balmy evenings. Lovely and fresh with plenty of flavour. Feel free to add any extra salad or vegetable items you desire.
If you don't enjoy beef these would be just as delicious with some lamb mince instead.
Originally created for Deagon Bulk Meats using their grass fed beef mince.
I hope you enjoy them!
500g grass fed beef mince
½ cup fresh flat leaf parsley leaves
¼ to ½ cup fresh coriander leaves
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon ground coriander
¼ teaspoon allspice
¾ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
½ cup natural yoghurt (we used coconut)
½ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ cup fresh mint leaves (loosely packed)
Juice of ½-1 lemon (to taste)
Sprinkle ground garlic powder (to taste)
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt to taste
Large Lettuce leaves (we used cos) or your choice of wraps
Optional Extras: coriander leaves, sliced tomato, sliced red onion, pickles, hommus
8 Bamboo skewers
Soak your bamboo skewers in water for at least 30 mins.
Mix your dressing ingredients: Chop the mint finely and mix with all the other ingredients. Taste and adjust to your liking.
Place the onion, garlic and herbs in a food processor. Pulse to chop finely. Add the mince, spices, salt and pepper and process again until well blended and is a relatively smooth paste.
Using clean hands, gently form about an 8thof the mince mixture around a skewer, squeezing gently to press it together and form the kofta/kebab shape.
Cook on a hot BBQ plate for about 8 minutes- turning regularly to brown it evenly all over.
To your choice of wrap/lettuce leaf, add your choice of toppings and a kofta. Drizzle with the dressing and sprinkle with added coriander leaves.
