  • In a large bowl, combine the meat with the herbs and spices. Knead by hand for a minute or two to ensure the seasoning is evenly distributed.
  • Shape the kefta into small sausage-like logs. Arrange the logs in a grill basket or thread and mold them onto skewers.

  • First, use the machine to grind the meat and the fat. Then add the herbs and spices and grind a second time. Note: If you'll be freezing the kefta mixture, wait to add the grated onion until the day you thaw and use the kefta. That's because the onion does not freeze well.
  • It's always useful to have a bowl of water handy. When we shape kefta, the hands tend to become sticky. Wetting our hands and pat drying them helps with shaping the rest of the kefta. Do this whenever you find it difficult to shape the ground meat.
  • Prepare the brasero/bbq. Make sure the flames have enough time to calm down. Start grilling when you see the charcoal covered with a layer of grey-silver ash. This way you ensure the kefta will be grilled properly.Place rows of kefta fingers or burgers side by side in a grill basket as it will be easy to flip it later.
  • My dad's traditional tip for serving a juicy kefta: the addition of a knob of butter over the pile of kefta fingers while still piping hot. The combination of the juice from the meat and the butter melting with the heat is something to die for. We used to rush on the plate and wipe a few drops of this juice with the bread. To all of us, it was as important as the Kefta itself.

Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add the remaining sauce ingredients and bring the mixture to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer, covered, for 10-15 minutes while you prepare the meatballs. (Taste the sauce and adjust salt to your taste preference, if necessary.)

  • Quick Moroccan Shrimp Skillet. When my niece was attending West Point, she was sent to Morocco for five months. I threw her a going-away party with Moroccan decorations, costumes and cuisine, including this saucy shrimp dish.
  • Moroccan Chicken Tagine Pockets. I enjoy shredded chicken dishes, Moroccan seasonings and pita sandwiches. The addition of the carrot salad laced with dates and pomegranate seeds lends an extra punch and crunch.
  • Moroccan Flatbreads. My family loves these tacos with Middle Eastern seasoning lots of vegetables. Ground turkey or beef may be substituted for the lamb.
  • Chicken with Sugar Pumpkins & Apricots. When we have family gatherings, we give the slow cooker kitchen duty. This yummy chicken with pumpkin and apricots has the warm flavors of Morocco.
  • Iced Melon Moroccan Mint Tea. I grow mint on my balcony, and this refreshing beverage is a wonderful way to use it. It combines two of my favorite drinks—Moroccan Mint Tea and Honeydew Agua Fresca.
