So just cook it, serve it, eat it and watch your favourite TV program. These kebabs might be served either with rice or with Lavash / tortilla bread.
Kebab in the Iranian cuisine has a special place. There are variety of kebabs, such as: ground meat kebab: kebab koobideh, sour kebab : kebab torsh, beef tenderloin : kebab barg. These kebabs made either with minced or diced beef, lamb, chicken or fish.
There are different kinds of kebab in the Persian cuisine and kebab tabei or pan fried kebab is one of the most delicious and brilliant meals. Kebab tabei is a juicy, moist and flavourful kebabs in a frying pan. Making this kind of kebab at home is very easy, and no need to a grill. All you need is minced beef /lamb and onion.
- 500g beef/lamb mince
- 1 large onion, grated
- large tomatoes or cherry tomatoes
- 1 green or yellow bell pepper

Squeeze grated onion to get rid of onion juice. In a bowl add minced meat, onion, paprika, season with salt and pepper and mix all ingredients together until well combined. Set aside for 15 minutes.
Add vegetable oil to a non stick pan. Spread the meat mixture in the pan and press the meat with your hand to cover the base of pan evenly.
Place the pan over medium low heat and allow to cook for 10 minutes until kebab has hardened. Now using a spatula or a knife and cut the flattened keban into stripes as you see in the photos.
Flip over kebab strips, also add tomatoes and chunks of bell pepper to the pan. Pour 4 tbsp water to the pan. Cover the pan with a lid and cook for 7-8 more minutes until other side of kebabs cooked and lightly roast tomatoes and bell peppers.
Serve the kebabs with rice and Shirazi salad.
