We went to my sister's home for dinner tonight to catch up with my nephew and his wife visiting from CA. Sis made a traditional Armenian dish called chi kefte.
Çiğ köfte - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In our family, it's served with large pieces of moistened cracker bread. Sides are a tossed salad and pickles.

It's a treat for my sister and the men in the family, my SO and niece ate other stuff.

andy, was it beef or lamb, or a mix?

i had it when i was a kid at my buddy's house (the nigoshian's). i LOVED it.

i wonder if the word kefte or kofte means seasoned ground meat, as in kefte kebabs?

Sis uses beef top of the round triple ground. She gets it from a small market that caters to the Armenian community. The butcher always grinds the chi kefte meat to order on a newly cleaned grinder to prevent contamination for earlier grindings.

Chi means raw and kefte translates to meatball. They are commonly hand shaped to a rough football shape. Ths size is governed by the cook's hand.

Sis arranges her preparation in a ring on a plate with a mound of minced scallions and parsley in the center for garnish.

Oatmeal, neither one of us had a clue what we wanted to eat.

Leftover ratatouille (finally getting some vegies from the garden...Asian eggplant, yellow and green zucchini, filet beans, broccoli, tomatoes and lots of garlic). DH made omelets with it, topped w/ white cheddar. Love breakfast for dinner.

"special brownies"? But you don't live in Washington or Colorado...

I love TJs. We have to drive almost 20 miles to get to the closest one, but we make sure we have a list and plan other stops in the area to make the trip worth it. Actually, any trip to TJs is worth it, but I want to get more from that trip.
