Mediterranean Kofta Kebabs

At my house, we love to make quick but super flavorful dinners during the school week. It’s important not to sacrifice flavor when you need to quickly whip up a dinner. Having some recipes that are just that are key to great dinner every night. My Mediterranean Kofta Kebabs recipe is just that! It’s super flavorful with all the spices in the beef mixture, can be prepared in advance, and cooks in just minutes! We like to serve it with Israeli salad, hummus, tahini, and pita; all our favorite Mediterranean fix-ins. After one try, this will become a favorite in your house too!
