“Simple Lebanese style lamb kibbee. It's a traditional basic recipe. Kibbee is to Middle Eastern cooking what a meatball is to Italian cooking. If you can not make it, stay out of the kitchen. I am not Lebanese by the way, but worked for 2 decades in a restaurant serving this type of food. I am actually Ukrainian.” - by MikeP
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8 inch square baking dish.
- Soak bulgur in hot water until the bulgur expands and cools, about 10 minutes. Place the bulgur, mint, allspice, pepper, cinnamon, salt, onion, parsley, and lamb in a food processor. Process until well mixed, about 1 minute. Divide the lamb mixture and layer half in the baking dish, creating a large patty. Sprinkle pine nuts over the meat, then layer the remaining lamb on top, patting firmly. Cut the kibbee into 1 1/2 inch squares.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the lamb is no longer pink in the middle, 30 to 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

"My Lebanese grandma taught me how to make the classic fried football shaped kibbeh, and while delicious, they were time consuming! This is so much easier and tastes just as delicious. I made a yogurt ..." See moremint sauce to go with them. Yum!!"
"Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! This was the most moist kibbee my family has ever had! I ended up baking it for 32 minutes. All the flavors were there. My only suggestion is that it needs..." See more more salt to bring all those wonderful flavors out. I served this with plain non-fat yogurt and pita. Super easy to prepare. My husband is ecstatic that he'll no longer have to wait to eat this dish at his parents' house now that I can make it!"
