Seasoned with aromatic and toasty ras el hanout, these beef koftas make for a beautiful and simple dinner in no time. We’ve filled our koftas with bright celery leaves and crunchy red onion along with some panko to hold it all together. In this recipe we’ve chosen to use beef, but feel free to do a 50/50 mix of beef and lamb mix for a richer and more distinctive flavor.

- 1 lb 80/20 ground beef
- ⅓ cup finely chopped red onion
- ¼ cup panko breadcrumbs
- 2 cloves garlic, grated
- ½ cup fresh celery leaves, divided

1) In a large bowl, combine 1 lb ground beef, ⅓ cup red onion, ¼ cup panko breadcrumbs, 2 cloves garlic, ⅓ cup celery leaves, 1 tbsp ras el hanout, ½ tsp kosher salt, and ½ tsp fresh ground pepper. Form into 16 balls.
2) Lay koftas in a Suvie roasting rack and insert the rack into a Suvie pan. Load the pan into the top zone of your Suvie.
