Lebanese-Style Ground Beef Kabobs

  • 1/4 cup grated white onion
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

Method: 
Prepare a gas or charcoal grill for medium-high heat cooking. In a large bowl, combine beef, onion, parsley, allspice, cinnamon, cayenne, salt and pepper. Using your hands or a large spoon, gently mix the ingredients together until just combined—do not overwork. Have ready 4 long metal skewers; form the beef mixture into 8 short sausage shapes and thread 2 onto each skewer. Brush with oil and grill, turning frequently, until browned and just cooked through, about 5 minutes.
