Traditionally Kabab is grilled on skewers over hot coal, this time I am going to cook it in the Oven!


  • 500 gr Lamb or lean beef or a combination of the two could be used, which needs meat with some fat on it.
  • One Onion
  • Salt, pepper and Saffron

To prepare koobideh, one uses minced lamb or beef (precisely 20% fat 80% meat)

blend the meat in food processor

blend the Onion

mix well the blended onion and the ground meat

add Salt, Pepper and Saffron

combine all the ingredients, cover and keep in fridge for 3-4 hours (or over night)

You may divide the ground lamb into equal 4 portions then shape each of them into flat cylinder

Cover the oven plate with aluminium paper, Place the prepared meat on it

Engrave several deep lines on them

Set oven at 200 degrees C or 400 degrees F

Place the plate in the Oven, for about 20 minutes for one side and another 20 minutes for the other side
