Baked Beef Kebabs with Yoghurt Tahini Sauce

easy baked beef kebab Try it and let us know – Baked Beef Kebabs with Yoghurt Tahini Sauce .

  •  You can process the beef last if you want to adjust the texture of the kebab.
  • Make sure the beef is drained and water free or it will be too wet a mixture.
  • You can use mutton in place of beef for this recipe.
  • Use these kebabs in wraps with the sauce, tomatoes and pickles – to make your own doner roll.
  • Note that the patty mixture will remain quite moist. Don’t add too much flour to try and shape it by hand. They are meant to be dropped on to the baking sheet much like drop cookies. If you add too much flour to shape them into a perfect patty by hand, the flavor of mince will be overwhelmed by the flour and it will taste more like a fritter.
