  • 1 lb ground lamb
  • ½ onion chopped
  • 3 slices bacon chopped, uncooked
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 small handful cilantro chopped
  • 1 pinch cumin optional


  • Prepare your ingredients by chopping a small handful of cilantro, ½ an onion, and 3 slices of bacon into very small pieces.

  • In a bowl mix together 1 pound of ground lamb and the chopped cilantro, onion, and bacon.
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt, 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper, and a pinch of cumin (optional).
  • This next step is very important. Keep mixing the meat mix for 5 minutes by hand, shape it into a ball, and start throwing it into a dish or cutting board, doing so 5-7 times. This will start a chemical reaction that will keep your kebab attached to skewers and prevent it from falling apart. ( If doubling the recipe, double the amount of times you mix and throw).
  • Refrigerate meat for 1 hour.

  • Take meat out of the refrigerator, divide it into four parts, and put on the skewers.

  • Lay the skewers on a baking sheet and cover with foil for 35 minutes. (You can also grill instead of baking the lulya kebab.)
  • Take the foil off and broil for another 5 minutes. Enjoy!
