These Cinnabobs (Kebabs On Cinnamon Sticks) Are So Easy And Fancy


Here’s how to make it:

INGREDIENTS (makes 12 pieces)

1 lb. ground beef or lamb

1/4 cup parsley, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

2 tsp. paprika

1/2 tsp. cumin

3 tbsp. pine nuts

1/3 cup bread crumbs

2 eggs

pinch of salt and pepper

1 tbsp. olive oil, for frying

12 cinnamon sticks


In a large mixing bowl, add the ground beef, parsley, garlic, paprika, cumin, pine nuts, bread crumbs, eggs, salt and pepper. Mix well using your hands.

Roll a piece of meat slightly larger than a golf ball in your palm to make it smooth. Poke a cinnamon stick into it and squeeze until the meat covers about half of the cinnamon stick evenly.

Bring a large frying pan to medium heat. Add olive oil and the kebabs. Try to avoid crowding the pan.

Fry for about 2 minutes then flip. The meat should release easily from the pan. If not, it’s not ready to flip. Wait 30 seconds the try again. Cook the kebab for about two minutes on all sides until it is evenly browned and cooked through.

Serve with a fresh lemony salad and you have a super-fancy, delicious and fun meal!
