Thai Beef Koftas with Coconut Sauce
I feel the need to put a disclaimer here that these koftas are in no way authentic. I just ripped off the idea of ‘meatballs on a skewer’ to make a fun new way to use ground beef.
Because we’ve all probably eaten enough tacos, spaghetti sauce and meat loafs to last a life time. Ground beef doesn’t have to be boring at all!
These beef koftas bring the taste of Thailand to your dinner table. They are flavored with red curry paste, fish sauce, lime juice and brown sugar. Roll them into elongated meatballs and stick a skewer through them, and you’re ready to grill!
You do have to be careful with them before you get them on the grill, they are a bit delicate. But once they’re seared, you’re good. Also, make sure you don’t make them too big, any longer than 2 inches and they may be too heavy to cook on the skewer. When they were 2 inches or less, they were surprisingly easy to handle!
And make sure you don’t forget to make the coconut sauce. It adds a sweetness and creaminess to the beef, and is also good for dipping veggies!
