Beef Kefta

The word kefta usually refers to a meatball or patty. These can be made from various meats and sometimes even lentils and vegetables. They are very popular in the Middle East, where they are grilled, fried and sometimes even served raw like a tartare. This beef version get a great flavor from the baharat spice, moisture from the onion and bread crumb, and a great creamy topping from the tahina.
You can pre-cook the keftas ahead of time and then warm up and finish with tahina sauce before serving. These would also be fantastic served with with a yogurt or labne suace or even a classic tomato sauce.
Make sure you have some pita or other bread to serve with it.
