Mediterranean Beef Meatball Kabob

Another great ground beef recipe! (That link is where the photo below is from – I have been really bad about taking photos lately.)


This ground beef recipe uses spices to give this a Mediterranean flavor – topped with tomatoes, red onion and other fresh veggies – this was a great summer dinner. I served mine in a pita with some simple tzatziki sauce.


I also had all the ingredients on hand, so that is always a plus for me!


I made this up the evening prior to grilling them for dinner the next day. This gave the meat even longer to absorb all the spice flavors.

Mediterranean Beef Meatball Kabobs

  • 1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 flatbreads (such as naan, lavash or pita bread)

Mix all ingredients (except for the flatbread) together with your hands until incorporated. Roughly divide your meat into 4 sections. In each of those sections, roll 4 meatballs. Let them sit overnight or until your grill warms up. Grill on medium heat until done. Serve in a pita or on a flatbread and garnish as you wish.

Toppings (optional):

Chopped tomatoes, chopped cucumber, chopped red onion, chopped fresh parsley, Tzatziki sauce, etc.

I loved this simple recipe and the fact that I could make it on the grill (easy clean-up and not heating up the house) was a bonus. The leftovers also heated up nicely in the microwave. I loved the cumin in these. Enjoy!
