  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • cup raisins, chopped

  • 1 ½ teaspoons chopped flat leaf parsley

  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander

  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon white sugar

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • skewers

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  1. Preheat grill for high heat.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, onion, raisins, and parsley. Season with cayenne pepper, cinnamon, coriander, nutmeg, sugar, salt, and pepper, and mix well. Form into 6 flat sausages around skewers. Lightly brush sausages with oil; this prevents sticking to the grill.

  3. Arrange skewers on hot grill grate. Cook for approximately 15 minutes, turning occasionally to brown evenly, until well done.
