1 pound ground American Lamb
3 large garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons ground coriander
1 tablespoon chopped mint
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
4 to 6 bamboo skewers, pre-soaked
4 to 6 pita flat bread
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon sriracha
1 large bunch mint


In a large bowl, combine lamb, garlic, coriander, mint, paprika and cumin. Form patties, the size of large meatballs; roll out to ovals and place on a tray. Insert skewers.

In a separate bowl, combine yogurt and sriracha.

Grill koftas on a medium-high heat grill, about 350°F, for 3 minutes per side or until a thermometer reads 160°F. (Oil grill grates so the meat does not stick.) Remove from grill; allow to rest under foil for 10 minutes. Grill pita bread for a few minutes to warm.

Serve koftas with warm pita bread and Greek yogurt dipping sauce. Garnish with mint.
