Kefta de Mame to kick off your family recipes

Kefta de Mame to kick off your family recipes

The Petrossian family would like to offer you a page from its most personal recipe book! Take a seat at our table and try some of our traditional Russian-Armenian recipes, passed down from generation to generation. No caviar, nor any best-sellers here, just flavoursome authentic dishes packed with history to share. Today I’m presenting “Les Kefta de Mame”, my grandmother’s meat patties.

 

Les Kefta de Mame

Serves 6

  • 500 g minced beef

Method

  1. Allow the breadcrumbs to expand in water.

  3. Roll the patties in the remaining breadcrumbs, and then in the flour.

  5. Serve with a yoghurt or tomato-based sauce.
