Moroccan Beef Koftas Recipe

I just love a BBQ, And I would like to share with you some of my favourite recipes that make barbecuing easy and inexpensive. Many recipes are ones that can be made and frozen, so that it takes the stress and strain off of a large gathering or you are always ready for a spontaneous BBQ!

Making ahead of time and batch making is definitely the way forward. When unexpected or extra guests arrive, you are always ready and can just dive into the freezer and be cooking in minutes! This lovely Moroccan Beef Koftas recipe is one of my favourites and is so quick and easy to make. They Freeze well and will definitely impress your friends and family. You may find you get a few more BBQ invitations than you used to and when you ask “ what can I bring?” The answer is sure to be “ some of those yummy Koftas you make please”! They are so much cheaper and tastier and healthier than the ready made ones from the supermarket. Give it a go, you will definitely be shocked at just how easy it is!


700g Minced Beef

½ cup chop coriander

2 ½ teaspoons of salt

2 teaspoons of onion powered or one onion grated or finely blitzed in a chopper

2 teaspoons of ground coriander

2 teaspoons of cumin

2 teaspoons of paprika

1 teaspoon chilli powder

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

½ teaspoon of garlic powder

½ teaspoons fresh ground pepper

1 egg. Method Put all of the ingredients in a bowl, roll up your sleeves and combine them together using your hands. Once you are happy that they are all the ingredients are well combined, wet your hands ( this makes it easier to shape the meat) Then roll into sausage shapes or alternatively I like to mould mine around large lolly sticks as I find it easier to turn them on the BBQ this way.

This recipe generally makes around 14 lolly stick Koftas. Place them on a tray that has parchment on it so you can just pop them in the freezer. Of course you can cook from fresh too! Once frozen I can bag them up, just remember to label and date. You can then stick your hand in the freezer and take as many or as few as you need. You can put them on the BBQ from frozen or thaw beforehand. Trust me they are just delicious and I have a tasty dip that compliments them perfectly,that I will share with you very soon!
