This was very good! Our family's recipe is similar, but we use allspice and cumin instead of the cinnamon. I did cut the cinnamon back some, and that worked better for our tastes. This was very easy to make and smelled wonderful while it was baking. The pine nuts sort of 'fell' off the top, but I think if I would've pressed them in a bit that would've fixed that problem, lol. All in all this was tasty and I would make it again! Thanks for sharing. :)

Allspice and cumin is my route too. However, with the sauteed onions and pine nuts I also add steak cut up....better filling. I put one layer of the kibbe, the steak mixture, and then a layer of kibbe on top, seal it, poke little holes in it and pour olive oil on top and bake. It comes out tender and not dry.
