Barbecue Beef, Feta and Green Onion Rissoles Recipe

Quick, easy and delicious -- these beef, feta and green onion rissoles make a great weeknight meal.


  • Serves 4
  • 750g lean beef mince
  • 1 egg
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • 150g feta cheese, crumbled
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 loaf Turkish bread, cut into 4 pieces, halved
  • 1 cup tabouli,
  • 1/2 cup Greek-style yoghurt and lemon wedges, to serve


Combine mince, egg, onions, breadcrumbs, cumin, parsley and feta in a large bowl. Season with pepper. Mix well. Using 2 tablespoons mixture at a time, roll mixture into balls to make 16 rissoles. Flatten rissoles slightly.

Preheat a greased barbecue plate on medium heat. Cook rissoles, turning occasionally, for 12 to 15 minutes or until cooked through. Try using a charcoal barbecue for a delicious smoky taste.

Spray both sides bread with oil. Barbecue for 1 to 2 minutes each side or until toasted. Transfer to a plate.

Place bread on serving plates. Top with tabouli and rissoles. Serve with yoghurt and lemon wedges.
