(KLTV/KTRE) - As Shalene McNeill showed us,this is a fun twist on a normal steak kebab. Using ground beef makes this an affordable and delicious alternative to your normal grilling routine.

Mediterranean Beef Meatball Kabob


1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)

1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs

2 egg whites or 1 whole egg

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

2 tablespoons water

2 cloves garlic

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

4 flatbreads (such as naan, lavash or pita bread)

Toppings (optional): Chopped tomatoes, chopped cucumber, chopped red onion, chopped fresh parsley, Tzatziki sauce


1. Heat oven or grill to 400°F. Combine Ground Beef, breadcrumbs, egg whites, parsley, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into sixteen 1-1/4-inch meatballs.

2. Thread meatballs onto four 10-inch skewers. Place on rack in broiler pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray or on grill grates. Bake in 400°F oven 18 to 20 minutes or on the grill 9-11 minutes.

3. Remove meatballs from skewers. Serve in flatbreads. Garnish with Toppings, as desired.

Tip: For easy cleanup, line bottom of broiler pan (not rack) with aluminum foil before baking meatballs.There are so many ingredients that complement these ground beef kabobs. You can use typical kabob vegetables like mushrooms, tomatoes, squash and bell peppers to add some colorful flavors to this meal. Use your favorite vegetable or what your family will eat to make everyone happy.
