What are Beef Koftas? 

A beef kofta is essentially a meatball that is uniquely spiced, with many different variations originating from Central and South Asia, as well as across the Eastern Mediterranean. Koftas are made with either beef or lamb, and in Mediterranean tradition, are served with tzatziki and flatbread. For this recipe, minced beef is used for the koftas, along with chopped onion, parsley, mint, and a fragrant spice blend of garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, sumac, and salt and pepper.  

The koftas require a quick pan fry until the outside is brown, and can then be placed in the oven to cook through. For the potato wedges, you can use oven baked potato wedges or you can make your own from scratch by cutting potatoes into wedge shapes, and roasting them in the oven. The potatoes are covered in a delectable coating of paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and fine salt.  

This beef koftas dish is a wholesome meal on its own, but if you are wanting some sides to serve the koftas with, you can include some pita bread and homemade tzatziki and salads on the side.
