Sheftalia / şeftali kebabı

Caul fatSheftalia (Turkish: şeftali kebabı) is a traditional Cypriot food. It is a type of sausage without skin, that uses caul fat, or omentum, the membrane that surrounds the stomach of pig or lamb, to wrap the ingredients rather than sausage casing.

Ingredients

Sheftalia_21/2 kg minced pork or lamb shoulder or leg

4 onions, finely chopped

2 slices dry white bread (rest of yesterday’s breakfast) , dipped in water

1 bunch parsley, finely chopped

caul fat

salt, pepper

Preparation

Sheftalia– Mix all ingredients except caul fat. Knead well.

– Lay out caul fat and cut into small square pieces. Mould 1 spoon of meat mixture into a sausage shape and place onto each square. Wrap caul fat around each piece and tuck the ends in to contain the filling.

– Grill them on the charcoal barbecue or gas grill until golden brown.

About tfrsecretary

Born in Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany in 1957, I was educated at a Baccalaureate High School. Later completed Technical University with a degree in Economic Informatics. I served for 12 years in the German Army before joining a French computer company for another 10 years. Then ran my own motorcycle and gastronomy businesses before deciding to retire. I arrived in North Cyprus with my second wife in 2004 and since her sad loss in 2011, I have kept myself very busy trying to help others with similar problems and in 2012 became the Secretary of “The Foreign Residents in the TRNC” (TFR). I am very keen to see expat communities coming together and playing their part in helping North Cyprus, our adopted homeland.
