Kibbeh Recipe

This incredible Middle Eastern Kibbeh Recipe is small croquet-like balls using lamb, bulgur wheat, and spices for an amazing meal.

You won’t believe just how flavorful these are.


– cold water – bulgur wheat – ground lamb – yellow onions – Lebanese 7 spice

Pour the water over the bulgur wheat in a medium-size bowl just until covered. Mix and set aside for 15-20 minutes. Next, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to a large frying pan over low to medium heat.

In the 2 small-diced onions and brown stirring occasionally, which takes about 20 minutes. Turn the heat to high and add in the ground lamb and cook until lightly browned and cooked through out.

Stir often to break up into small pieces. Stir in the spice blend, fresh basil, fresh mint, salt, and toasted pine nuts, and set aside.

Transfer the soaked bulgur wheat to a food processor along with the roughly chopped onions and pulse on high speed until the onions are finely minced.

Add in the ground lamb, spices, fresh herbs, and salt, and pulse on high speed until it becomes smooth. Dip your hands in water and grab about a golf ball size of the processed meat and form a ball.
