Happy Monday, my friends! Someone on IG asked what my favorite meal is to make for my family, and it’s easily these kabobs with curry tomatoes. :).
I think some of you may already know this, but my dad is from the Middle East. So, I have been making this meal for as long as I can remember. My kids love it, and it’s kind of a comfort food for our crew. It’s actually quite simple, but just requires a few different steps along the way. I finally got around to writing down my recipe, and I am so pleased to share a little bit of my family with yours. This feeds my family of 5 for one meal. 🙂 So, here we go! Enjoy! XOXO Narci
Ingredients for the Kabob Mixture:
2.5 lbs ground beef (this works better when using a meat with a higher fat content. I’ve tried other options but 80% works perfectly!)
2 packages of Lipton Beefy Onion soup mix
1 package of Sadaf Ground Beef Kabob Seasoning
2 tbsp Sadaf curry
large metal skewers
*if you can’t find the seasoning packet, you can always sub in the following (2 tbsp garlic, 2 tbsp curry, 2 tbsp mixed onions, 1 tbsp turmeric, 1 tbsp salt. I definitely recommend fnding a middle eastern curry. The seasoning is a little differnet and will alter the taste. 🙂
Ingredients for the Tomatoes:
1 white onion diced
5-6 Roma tomatoes diced
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp curry
1/2 tbsp salt
For the Kabobs, mix all ingredients together.
Then form the meat mixture around each of the skewers. Practice makes perfect on this part, so don’t be discouraged if this takes a bit to figure out. 🙂
Grill, until cooked through, turning mid-point. 🙂
For the tomatoes, sauté diced onions in butter until clear and beginning to brown
Add diced Roma tomatoes and canned tomatoes
Add garlic powder and curry, sauté until tomatoes start to tenderize
Cook on medium low for approximately 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serve with Kabobs and steamed white rice!
So good! Enjoy, my friends!
