To this day, my mom’s Kofta Meatballs are one of the most delicious dishes at any Egyptian get-together! Once you go in for one, you won’t be able to stop. I could finish off a whole platter on my own, and luckily, I can do just that now that my mom taught me how to make them. It’s an incredibly easy recipe, with incredibly flavorful results.
The simplicity of this recipe comes from the fact that you can use a food processor to mix all the ingredients at once. The food processor will work to mince all the vegetables and then blend the ground beef in evenly. Afterwards, you’ll form the meatballs and pop them in the oven for about 25 minutes! Or if you prefer the kebab style, you can easily wrap the beef mixture around some wooden skewers and bake those instead.
The ingredients are so simple but when combined, they yield the most flavorful meatballs you will ever taste. So much so, that no sauce or gravy is needed. But it’s highly recommended to serve these with hummus and pita bread for the ultimate Egyptian meal. I’m hoping to get a good hummus recipe on my site soon, so stay tuned. But in the meantime, give these classic Egyptian Kofta Meatballs a try!
