These aromatic grilled kabobs made with ground beef are a wonderful way to enjoy the full flavor of grass-fed beef. Serve with tabbouleh.
1 1/4 pounds ground grass-fed beef
1/4 cup grated white onion
3 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
Prepare a gas or charcoal grill for medium-high heat cooking. In a large bowl, combine beef, onion, parsley, allspice, cinnamon, cayenne, salt and pepper. Using your hands or a large spoon, gently mix the ingredients together until just combined—do not overwork. Have ready 4 long metal skewers; form the beef mixture into 8 short sausage shapes and thread 2 onto each skewer. Brush with oil and grill, turning frequently, until browned and just cooked through, about 5 minutes. .
