500 regular ground beef
1 small size onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp full red pepper paste
1 bunch parsley, finely chopped
1 tsp crushed red pepper
1 tsp salt
For Roll (sarma):
1 packet Original Tortillas
1 tsp butter, melted
Parsley, finely chopped
Yogurt, room temperature
1/2 cup crushed tomatoes, canned, heated up with a few tablespoons of water
Crush the onion with salt very well. Add in all the kofte ingredients and knead. You need to use flat metal skewers for this kebab. Take a fist-sized ball and skewer it starting from the tip of the skewer. Squeeze and flatten it on the skewer going back slowly, so that it is thin and flat (picture).
Preheat your barbecue or oven (grill). Place the skewers on the rack. Make sure to turn the skewers so that all sides of the meat cooks equally. Afterwards, roll the Kebab pieces with a Tortilla, but only one layer, the pide shouldn't be thick. Brush the surface of the Tortilla with melted butter. Sprinkle some chopped parsley all over and cut in 2 inch wide pieces. Arrange them on a serving dish along with yogurt and tomato sauce, and serve while they still hot.
Makes 4 servings.
