Cooking Wild Game: Venison Kofta Kebabs

The Food Blog Series That Teaches you How to Cook With Wild Game

Try this aromatic, delicious, Middle Eastern-inspired recipe from Black Angus Fine Meats & Game.

Ingredients List

  • 1 pound ground venison 
  • 3 tablespoons minced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup mint, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander seed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 whole finger chili, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Olive oil, for brushing the grill
  • Flatbread, for serving (optional)

Recipe Instructions

1. Mix the venison, onion, garlic, parsley, mint, coriander, cumin, chili salt, and pepper together in a large bowl.

2. Divide the mixture into 6 roughly even balls. Mold each ball around the pointed end of a skewer, making an oval kebab that comes to a point just covering the tip of the skewer. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 15 minutes before threading them.

3. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat or prepare a grill. Brush the pan lightly with olive oil. Grill the kebabs, turning occasionally, until brown all over and cooked through about 10 minutes.

Transfer to a serving platter and serve with tzatziki sauce, flatbread, and a nice salad. Enjoy!
