Eggplant Kebab

(Patlican Kebap)

Eggplant Kebab
2 Chinese or Japanese eggplants, washed, cut in 3 cm thick pieces
3-4 cubanelle peppers, washed
2-3 medium tomatoes washed, cut in halves
4-5 garlic cloves, unpeeled

Meatball Ingredients:
300 gr medium ground beef
Salt
Pepper

Garnish:
Extra virgin olive oil
Mozzarella, grated
Crushed red pepper

Knead the meatball ingredients. Shape them into medium sized balls. While maintaining the order of the eggplant pieces, alternate meatball and eggplants while skewering.

Preheat your barbecue or oven (grill). Place the skewers on the rack along with the peppers, tomato halves (inside up) and garlic cloves. Make sure to turn the skewers so that all sides of the meat and eggplants are cooked equally.


How to Serve Eggplant Kebab

Sevgili Anna,
Minik kofteleri, icine yumurta, sogan, ekmek gibi extralar koyup da izgara yaparsan dagilabilir. Yalnizca tuz ve karabiber koydugun zaman dagilmamasi gerekiyor:)
Sevgilerimle,

In Gaziantep they make Patlicankebap different way.
We put it in a round overdish,exactly the same way you put them on a skewer and the salt mixed with some hot water over it.
pepers ,tomatoes and garlic are putten on top and around.
This way the Patlican is juiceer!
