My favourite art form: Koobism!

Kebab Koobideh

4 Servings
500 grams ground lamb
2 large onions (grated)
1 large egg (beaten)
4 medium tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon sumac (optional)

Mix meat, onions, egg, salt and pepper well and leave in the refrigerator overnight.

Press the meat around long, thick metal skewers and shape evenly. Thread whole tomatoes on another skewer. Barbeque each side for about five minutes, turning frequently. If skewers are not available or barbequing is not possible, kabab-e koobideh can be shaped into long, thin portions on aluminum foil and grilled at high temperature in the oven. The oven should be pre-heated and kabab-e koobideh should be placed as high as possible near the source of the heat. Serve with hot pilau or bread. If serving with rice, some sumac may be sprinkled on top.
