Adana Kebab is a Turkish dish made from ground meat mounted on a skewer and grilled on a stove or charcoal. However, it is made with some tricks and care. Today at Tak Recipe, we want to teach you how to make this delicious dish just like the Turkish restaurants.
|Ingredients for four people|

|Red bell pepper||2|
|Large white onion||2|
|Black pepper||½ tsp|
|Pul Biber||½ tsp|
Adana Kebab Recipe
Cut the meat and fat into pieces and grind them with a meat grinder. Mix them and grind them twice.
Dice the bell pepper, onion, and parsley into small pieces and put them in a suitable bowl. Then add the minced meat to the bowl with salt, black pepper, and Pul Biber. You can also season it with ground cumin and sumac.
Mix the meat and other ingredients well and knead them for about 10 minutes with your hand until it is slightly sticky and tacky to the touch.
Cover the meat mixture with plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for about 2 hours to chill.
Now take it from the fridge and knead it again for a couple of minutes. Then wet your hands, divide the meat into four parts, and shape each into a ball.
Then pick a meatball and mold it around the skewer. It should have about one-centimeter thickness all over the skewer. Repeat the same process for other meatballs.
You can grill this kebab on the stove, but we recommend you use charcoal. Light charcoal, and when they are lit and covered with gray ash, place kebabs parallel to each other directly on the coal’s heat.
It takes about 10 to 15 minutes for kebabs to cook through and get charred on both sides. Be careful to turn the skewer every minute or even sooner to prevent the meat from falling off the skewer.
Your Adana kebab is ready now. Sprinkle some sumac on the kebabs, and serve this delicious kebab with warm bread, sliced onion, and parsley. You can also grill some tomato or chili pepper as your desire. Enjoy your meal!
