Add the ground beef and season with salt and pepper. Quickly mix everything together with your hands. Try not to overmix the ground beef, as its texture is best when it remains a bit coarse. Divide mixture into 8 parts.

Grill the skewers, turning frequently, until they’re nicely browned, juicy, and tender, 6-8 minutes. If the heat is too high or the meat is accidentally overcooked, the skewers may fall apart, as the structure of the meat literally breaks down. To flip the skewers on the grill, use two spatulas to roll the skewers or they may fall apart. Serve with dipping sauce.
