Lulu Kebab

Lulu kebab is ground lamb with spices. The traditional way to cook it is by forming it into logs around a skewer. However, this is pretty tricky so my family just broils or BBQs them off a skewer. You can even make them into patties like hamburgers. I’ve substituted ground beef and ground turkey for the lamb before and it comes out yummy.


1 lb. ground lamb

1 cup finely chopped onion

4 Tbsp. minced parsley

1/2 tsp. pepper

2 tsp. garlic salt

1 tsp. cumin

pinch oregano

1 cup bread crumbs

1 egg

2 Tbsp. tomato paste


Mix everything together with your hands just like you would meatloaf. Form into approximately 6 inch long logs. You can either BBQ them or place them on a sheet pan and broil them for 15 minutes, turning halfway through.

Optional: pour a can (with juice) of chopped tomatoes over the top of the lulu kebab before the last 5 minutes of cooking.
