Kofta Kebobs are a popular Eastern European and Middle Eastern dish made from ground lamb, veal, beef or a combination. Typically it is seasoned with various spices and filled with cilantro. These kebabs can be served with many different sides and salads. We recommend a side of rice and grilled vegetables, especially tomatoes.
