Moroccan cooks like to knead their finely ground and spiced beef or lamb so that their kefta (meatballs or patties) will be smooth. Plus: More Beef Recipes and Tips

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large bowl, mix the ground beef with the coriander, cumin, salt, paprika and 3 tablespoons of the olive oil. Form the meat into sixteen 3-inch patties.

Step 2    

Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet. Cook the kefta in 2 batches over moderately high heat, turning once, until just cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve warm or at room temperature with the Homemade Harissa.

Suggested Pairing

Only a simple, direct, fruity rosé with an edge of sweetness can stand up to the sweet and hot spices here. Try one from Australia or Chile.
