Simit kebab, a dish of Gaziantep region, is prepared with fine bulgur and ground beef. Since it contains plenty of protein, it supports muscle development. Simit kebab is usually served with fried lavash, so it adds flavor. This dish is known as oruk kebab in some regions. You can decorate the top with peanut powder, which we strongly recommend you to choose. By the way, simit kebab is not like simit, so don’t be confused.

Materials of Simit Kebab;
- 1 cup fine bulgur
- 1 glass of warm water
- 700 grams ground beef
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- 1.5 teaspoons of black pepper
- 1 tablespoon of ground red pepper
- 1.5 teaspoons of mint
- 2 cloves of garlic
Preparation of Simit Kebab;
- Mix the bulgur with warm water in a large mixing bowl and wait until the bulgur rises slightly.
- After the bulgur has swelled, ventilate it with the help of a spatula, add ground beef, salt, black pepper, red ground pepper, mint and grated garlic and start kneading the ground beef without crushing it too much.
- Form the ground beef with bulgur into thin meatballs on the soaked skewers and place them on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 25 minutes. Serve with onion sumac and fresh bread, bon appetit!
The most important point you should pay attention to while preparing simit kebab is the kneading process. Because when the mortar is not kneaded well, it can crumble. We recommend kneading for at least 15 minutes so that the simit kebab does not stay on the skewers and scatter and the mortar mixes well.
