Category: ,

Beyti kebab is a Turkish dish consisting of ground beef or lamb, grilled on a skewer and served wrapped in lavash and topped with tomato sauce and yogurt.


700 g ground lamb
2tsp ground coriander
2tsp ground cumin
2tsp ground black pepper
Salt to taste
Dried hot red pepper flakes to taste
Olive oil
1 onion
1 tomato
400ml tomato passata
Parsley to serve
Yogurt to serve
Very thin pita bread (lavash bread)


Mix ground lamb with the coriander, cumin, black pepper, red pepper flakes, and salt. Leave to sit in the fridge for about one hour.
Form meat into patties 3 cm x 15 cm. Preheat barbeque or grill, coat with some olive oil. Cook meat on a medium-low heat for about 15-20 minutes. The meat is ready when it is springy. Turn the meat often.

For the tomato sauce;

Cook the onion in olive oil. Add a sliced tomato, a can of tomato sauce and some pepper to taste.
Wrap the meat patties two times round in thin pita bread. Cut the wraps into bite size pieces and arrange in a circle on a plate. Lightly drizzle the wrapped meat with the tomato sauce.
Add yogurt, parsley, and a side dish (rice, couscous, bulgur) in the center of the circle.

This kebab is quite tasty and filling. One of the highlights of this kebab is the set up of the plate, which provides an excellent balance of meat, side dish,
garnish, and yogurt.
