Kabab Tabei is basically Persian pan kabab, and it is very easy way of making Kabab when you don't have a grill or BBQ.
I love any type of kabab made with ground beef therefor Kabab Tabei is one of my favorite foods. My mom made the most delicious Kabab Tabei and I learned how to make it from her adding my own twist.
Kabab Tabei can be served with bread or Persian saffron rice and either way is extremely simple and delicious. Most people serve this Kabab with cooked tomatoes, however I like to add pepper and onion on top as well.
