This is a new recipe that we created by accident last evening. It was such a success, that my son informed me he would never eat burgers in the same way ever again. He also said that this was better than my own mother’s cooking, which was a first.
Background: We had a pound of high quality ground beef that we got on sale at Alfalfa’s here in Boulder.
It was in the fridge, and we needed to cook it. So my idea was cook some Kebabs on the grill. I spent a lot of time in New Delhi as a kid, and ate at the Kebab joints in the north part of the city.
I remember the taste of those, and I was looking to recreate them last evening.

Directions: I first mixed the ground beef with a quarter cup of yellow onion. I really chopped the onions well. I next drizzled a heavy tablespoon of Fresh Pressed Olive Oil on the beef, which we are lucky enough to have in our kitchen at all times.
Next, I ground a lot of salt and pepper into the beef. I added a heaping tablespoon of Mojo Cuban Rub that we get at Whole Foods. This is a staple in our fridge. Jackie uses it to cook salmon regularly. Especially when she is on the cleanse, which she just completed. Mojo Cuban rub has dry garlic and onion, lime flavor, lemon flavor and other unspecified spices.
The onion, garlic, lime and lemon flavors here are essential to the success of this kebab recipe.
I also added a heaping teaspoon of curry powder that we had in the kitchen. Any curry powder
I then mixed the whole thing by hand and really ground the beef and the ingredients together. I remember that the Kebabs I at as a kid in India had a very smooth texture, unlike a regular hamburger. Really knead the mix together to get the beef smooth and fully integrated with the
It was at that point that I turned on the grill outside, and went to kind the Kebab skewers. Which we totally had at some point. But they were gone.
So I decided to just cook the Kebabs in patty form, just like I would a hamburger. It worked
very well, and in many ways was actually easier than dealing with the skewers. Trying to keep the meat on the skewers, turning them, getting the heat right, cleaning them.
I cooked them a little too well, but that did not matter. I brought them into the kitchen, and the crowd went wild. I also squeezed lemon on the Kebabs.
I had already made a massive chopped salad of three romaine hearts, combined with one avocado.
Jackie had the idea of taking one of the Kebab Hamburgers, cutting into pieces and
mixing it with the chopped salad. Kebab Hamburger Chopped Salad was born!!
We would have a picture for you, but the whole thing went so fast. The flavor of the salad was incredible. The romaine hearts add a crunchy texture. The avocado adds a creamy texture. And
the kebab has this amazing flavor that you have to make to experience.
This is also the essence of the Cheat System Diet- where you mix piles of healthy foods like romaine and avocado, with “normal” foods like Hamburger. And then prepared in a totally gourmet manner. For those of you who do not have the free Cheat System Diet Cookbook, you can download
Notes: I suppose this could work with turkey burger or lamb.
