Middle Eastern Kibbeh Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 3)
Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
I was surprised to find a recipe for kibbeh here... it's very similar to my recipe which is also very popular in Brazil. I finally found bulgur CAN be found here and the first thing I made was kibbeh. My recipe takes toasted pine nuts (about 1/2 cup) mixed in and you can place the whole mixture in a 9x13 baking pan (foil or glass) and bake it at 350F for 30/35 minutes. It's very popular to serve this way as well. I use to make a little vinaigrette to serve on the side: diced tomatoes, cucumbers, chopped parsley, some hot pepper drops and chopped parsley. My husband fell in love with it and the next time we'll make patties and grill the kibbeh. Thanks for posting, I'm sure everybody will enjoy this dish very much.

I made these last night and we really enjoyed them - we served them with the couscous and cucumber salad also from allrecipes, and the flavors blended really well together. I did have to use dried mint (@1/4 cup) instead of fresh and ground beef instead of lamb, as our supermarket didn't have either fresh mint or ground lamb available. I'd probably use less mint next time (just personal preference), and we liked them even better when they were sprinkled with a bit of garlic salt while pan frying. The leftovers were fabulous too, we didn't even bother heating them up, they tasted so great at room temperature and straight from the fridge. Thanks for the great recipe!

it was perfect! I made it with low-fat minced beef and did not add any oil, baked it, and it was still really good. I also added more bulgur and spices (bit of cinammon, clove of garlic, ginger powder and cayenne pepper). For a dip, I mixed 1/2 cup of yogurt, 2 tbsp of tahini and 2 tbsp of water, salt and pepper. thanks for the inspiration!

Thank you so much for this recipe, it was absolutely wonderful. I had been looking for a recipe for baked kibi (kibbeh) for a while now and this one was the closest to perfect I could find. The only thing that i changed, and it is a personal taste thing, is added more bulgar and less meat. Oh, one other thing, for an extra little change gently stir in some fresh toasted almond slices. Thanks again for the great recipe!

This was AWESOME!! I had been wanting to make kibbeh for a long time. When I was studying in Mexico, I found that there were quite a few middle eastern restaurants, and this dish was very popular. In the US, it seems not many people have heard of it. I liked the fact that the mint and onion was mixed right up into the meat/bulgur mix, as I've only had it on the side before. I made raita to eat with this b/c I thought the flavors would go well together and it was DELISH!! Thanks for the recipe!
