Grilled Kefta and Pita Recipe

Kefta, a popular meat dish in Lebanon, can be cooked in many different forms. What makes kefta so unique (and delicious) is it’s a combination of meat, onions, and parsley. In this recipe, I will show you how Eva cooks it right inside of pita. This recipe will require some grilling, but an oven will work just as well!

Ingredients:

1 pound ground beef
One medium sized onion
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
1/2 tablespoon salt
A Package of 8-inch pita bread (or large pita cut into fours)

Instructions:

  1. In a bowl, mix all ingredients (except for pita) together
  2. Open each pita, place approximately 4 ounces of mixture and flatten it on bottom pita before covering back up
  3. Grill until pita is toasted or bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes (the thicker the meat is, the more time you will need and a greater chance of pita burning)

Squeeze some fresh lemon juice on your kefta in the pita for more deliciousness. This is also great paired with hummus! Enjoy 🙂
