Since my wife is pregnant, I have been changing how I prepare the proteins we eat at home. During this time, she needs more variety, so I am preparing ground beef in different ways.
Last month, on twitter, I started to follow and interact with Vic Basmadjian (@ketochoahvic), a Montreal based coach. I recently saw him post a delicious looking plate of Kofte and Low Carb friendly Middle Eastern sides. A light bulb went off. Kelly would love this! I asked Vic for the ingredients and method of prep, and he was more than happy to share it with me. I made this dish once last week, and it went over so well, I am already making it again. It is made with simple, fresh ingredients. It is better to prepare it the day before to allow the flavors to mingle, but if you need to make it in a hurry, it will work.
You will need: 2 Pounds of Ground Beef (80/20) 1/2 Bunch Parsley, finely chopped 2 Garlic Cloves, minced 1 Tbs Aleppo Pepper Zest of 1 lemon Salt and Pepper to taste
Method of Prep:
Place the ground beef in a large mixing bowl.
Combine the remaining ingredients.
Add to ground beef and mix well to combine.
Cover and allow to chill for up to 24 hours.
