Reminiscent of the Turkish meatballs called köfte, ground lamb gets wrapped around a skewer (an easy step) and grilled to juicy perfection. Served on flatbread with grilled vegetables and a cool yogurt sauce, it makes a casual but fantastic meal.

Sofrito, a cooked mixture of aromatic vegetables and seasonings, is used in many Latin American dishes. Though you can make it yourself, you also can buy it jarred at many supermarkets for a handy weeknight shortcut.
it would be helpful to have the recipe for sofrito for those of us who can"t buy it ready made.
My family loved this-- the kabobs were juicy and very flavorful. Here in Chicago, we can get sofrito made fresh, right next to the pico de gallo and guacamole in the refrigerated case-- and I had to choose between red and green (no idea, but I chose red). The only problem I had was keeping the kabob on the skewer-- I was using metal skewers, maybe wood would work better. Next time I plan to just grill these as patties. Also the grilled veg made a tasty salad the next day. This recipe is a keeper!
