Spicy Meat Skewers


It's always handy to have recipes using mince so that you can rustle something up quickly. These skewers can be cooked on the barbeque or just grilled


2lb minced beef

2 onions, finely chopped

1 tbsp ground cummin

1 tbsp ground coriander

6 tbsp chopped parsley

1 tsp paprika

salt & pepper to taste

a little olive oil

lime slices to serve

quantity wooden skewers – soaked in water until needed


Mint Yoghurt Sauce

3 spring onions, chopped

300 ml natural yoghurt

1 tbsp chopped mint

  1. Ask the butcher to mince the beef twice or put it in the processor until very fine. Knead it together with the onion, spices, parsley and seasoning to make an even consistency.
  2. Take about a tablespoon of mixture and press a sausage type shape around the pointy ends of the skewers. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with pepper
  3. Grill for about 5 mins each side, trying to keep the bare sticks away from the heat to avoid burning. Sprinkle with parsley and squeeze with a little lime.
  4. While the meat is grilling, make up the sauce by stirring all the ingredients together
  5. Serve on a bed of rice with a crisp salad
