Grilled Meatballs (Izgara Köfte)

1 lb ground beef (96% lean)
1 small onion chopped finely
2 large cloves of garlic
1/6 cup bread crumbs
3/4 cup parsley chopped finely
1 tsp salt
½ tsp ground black pepper

Mix all ingredients for a few minutes to make sure everything mixes together well. Create a small ball from the meat mixture and give an oval shape. Place in the refrigerator over night or for a few hours. If you will grill outside, grill both sides until the outside of the meat is darkened. You may also broil the köftes in the oven. Place under broiler for 5-6 minutes on each side or until outside is darkened. This popular dish and Turkish fries complement each other perfectly.
