Uncle Bob, my friend will be sending her recipes to me in the next few days. One of her parents are from Lebanon. I will post the recipes as soon as I get them from her.

The Kibbeh that I have eaten from Lebanese friends and restaurants has basically been a lamb meatball with bulgur that was grilled. I did have it deepfried once and then on another occation I had some that was raw. It is usually a dish that is greatly cherished by them. The times I have eaten them they were all made by hand and the lamb was ground on a big stone (like a big mortar and pestle). The best recipes I found for it where on this book Amazon.com: The Cooking of the Eastern Mediterranean: 215 Healthy, Vibrant, and Inspired Recipes: Books: Paula Wolfert

I highly recommend it for anyone interested in the food of that region.

I asked a question about the type of bulghur particularly for this dish (could be spelled kibe, quibe, kibbeh etc.) a little while ago and learned a lot about it.

Then I went on to try my hands on it, they are more like fully cooked meatballs with a particular shape. I used this recipe and came out delicious!!

It required slightly less time than given, about 8 minutes, make sure to use plenty of oil and heat it up sufficiently so the meatballs won't soak up unwanted grease.

Uncle Bob, I got the recipes from my friend; they are from the out-of-print cookbook her Grandmother used. BTW, did any of you know that Kibbi is the Lebanese word for "kebab?" It is going to take too much to try to re-write them so that it doesn't get us in trouble with copywrite laws. If anyone would like the recipes, please send your email addy to me in a PM and I will get them sent to anyone that would like them.

Okay, thanks Andy. I will do it that way. Or maybe not as my friend scanned the pages from the cookbook and they are more a photo. Oh well, I'll figure it out.

The only time I had was when the Lebanese girl I was messing around with made it for me.

She used beef (i'm not sure if she preferred it that way, but lamb is kind of a pain to find here) and it was cooked.

It was like a little meatloaf thing. Tasty. Wish I had some right now =P
