Greek Beef Skewers

Tailgate Time

These Greek Beef Skewers with riced Cauliflower Tabbouleh will be the perfect new addition to your weeknight meal rotations when you are looking for something low carb with lots of flavor. Once the patties come together with lemon zest, oregano, chili flakes and egg, you’ll need a wooden or metal skewer for the beef. For the tabbouleh, you can either grate your own cauliflower rice or grab a frozen package from the store for something quicker. Fresh mint, garlic and parsley make this cool side dish refreshing in the late summer heat! Pair this with Diamond Collection Merlot.
