Middle Eastern Kibbeh

Middle Eastern Kibbeh
  • 2/3 cup medium coarse bulgur
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground lamb
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Place bulgur in a microwave-safe bowl and cover with water just to the top of the bulgur. Place in the microwave and cook on High 1 to 2 minutes until bulgur is swollen and the water is absorbed. Toss briefly and allow to stand until cool.
  2. Place the mint leaves in the bowl of a food processor. Process, gradually adding onion through the feed tube, until both mint and onion are finely chopped. Stir the mint-onion mixture into the bulgur, with the cumin, allspice, salt, and pepper. Stir the bulgur mixture into the ground lamb and mix thoroughly. Using damp hands, shape the lamb mixture into small, palm-sized patties.
  3. Place the olive oil in a skillet and heat over medium heat. Add the kibbeh patties and cook until outside is golden brown and center is cooked through, turning once, about 6 minutes on each side.
