Easy Lamb Koftas From Beef & Lamb New Zealand
Beef & Lamb New Zealand and is great for a Summer BBQ. I have made this recipe many times and its always great. People love the way the mince is moulded onto the skewers.
In my view New Zealand produces the best beef and lamb in the world. I prefer Lamb but I have made this recipe with Beef mince as well
500g Quality Mark lean lamb mince
½ cup fresh breadcrumbs - approx. (For Gluten free substitute with GF Crumbs)
1 slice of bread made into crumbs (For Gluten free use 1 slice of GF bread)
½ tbsp dried thyme leaves
1 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1 tsp cumin
½ tsp each salt and chilli (chilli is optional)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
Zest of a lemon
10 bamboo skewers soaked in water for 1 hour
Combine all the ingredients and mix well. Divide the mixture into 10 portions and shape each so it resembles a sausage. Slide the shaped koftas onto the soaked skewers and refrigerate for half an hour. When ready, grill or barbecue 8-10 minutes until cooked, turning frequently.
