These Kofta Stuffed Dates from Millennial Kosher are a little sweet, a little salty, and make the perfect appetizer!
Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • 2 tablespoon grated shallot
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 24 Medjool dates
  • 12 slices beef fry, sliced in half lengthwise (I used thin slices of pastrami)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine meat, shallot, garlic, parsley, spices, and pine nuts. Form the mixture into torpedo-shaped logs, each about 1 heaping tablespoon.
  3. Slice open dates lengthwise, making sure not to cut all the way through. Discard pits.
  4. Stuff dates with meat mixture. Wrap each date with a strip of beef fry; place on a rack set over a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve warm.
