Pork and Lamb Lula-kebab with Herbs
Lula-kebab is a popular dish of Azerbaijani cuisine and common in the Caucasus region, Central Asia and the Balkans. It’s a ground meat formed into sausages and skewered. These can be cooked on a grill or in an oven. The most important thing in cooking Lula-kebab is when kneading the ground meat onto the skewer. The more you knead the meat, the better it will hold onto the skewers and not fall apart. I changed the recipe a little by adding pork, bacon and some spices. Lamb can be substituted for beef. Serve with Spicy salsa or another sauce in pita bread along with fresh vegetables and herbs.

- 125 g pork
- 300 g lamb
- 60 g bacon
- 1 large onion
- 3 cloves of garlic
- a pinch of turmeric
- a pinch of paprika
- 1 tsp tarragon leaves
- 1 tsp rosemary leaves
- 1 tsp mint leaves
- juice of half lemon
- salt, pepper
- Slice the meat and bacon and cut the onion into 4 pieces. Grind together with the garlic. Mix the ground meat mixture with finely chopped taragon, rosemary and mint leaves, add the turmeric, paprika, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and mix thoroughly.
- With wet hands, take the meat in small portions, and form sausages on the skewers. If you are cooking in the oven, lay a baking sheet with foil and put the skewers on top, leaving space between them. Place the skewers on a grate so the fat will drip into the pan.
- Bake in an oven at 440F and cook until the kebabs appear golden brown, about 15-20 minutes, then turn and cook another 5-8 minutes. Take kebabs from oven and let cool for 5-7 min.
