Here is a link to some recipes http://www.cooks.com/rec/search/0,1-0,kibbie,FF.html I'll try to get hold of a friend that I am sure would have a great recipe for this.

Actually my favorite way of eating kibbe (lamb) is raw.

Unfortunately I don't think I can get the meat sufficiently fresh to make it at home so we only get it at Middle East restaurants that we trust. And where we live they don't exist.

So only get it when we, rarely, travel. Sigh.

It may sound a bit off putting, but if you can, give it a try. It is very good.

If you want to go Google Kibbeh, you will get 1000's of recipes. So much depends on getting the foreign word right, never mind how it is normally spelt in your own country.

I found this out for myself a few years ago!!

Strangely enough, even though I'd rate Lebanese food as my favorite overall, AND I am a serious devotee of rare meat ... kibbeh puts me off, big time.

However, I'll happily provide recipes from very authentic sources if you'd like. Just shout.

Lamb and Raw tradtionally....The versions I have had have been extreamly lean beef and cooked...As in Kibbie balls...I know a Lebanese lady who makes a Kibbie...I guess you would call it a loaf....

This is what I'm thinking of (lower right corner) although just maybe those individual bits above and left are kibbeh "balls"??

If it's beef and cooked that pretty much makes it meatloaf, doesn't it? Does it have really distinctive spicing you like?

All the dishes in the pic you posted are of kibbie. It's just in some of its various forms. Meatloaf describes it best.
