  • 2 pounds boneless leg of lamb (no fat or gristle), cut into large pieces
  • cups fine grain bulgur wheat
  • 2 tablespoons dried onion flakes
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon ground allspice
  • teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint or 1 teaspoon dried mint
  • cup chilled water

  • 2 white onions, peeled
  • 3 tablespoons virgin olive oil
  • Chopped parsley

  • How To Cook:
    1. Grind the lamb coarsely in a meat grinder, keeping it as cold as possible during the process.

    2. Soak the bulgur wheat and the dried onion flakes in 2 cups of water for about hour. Drain well.

    3. Mix all ingredients thoroughly and run through the grinder using the fine blade a second time.

    4. Mold the kibbeh into a mound on a platter and surround it with onion petals. Onion petals are made by cutting an onion into 6 wedges and dividing the wedges into "petals."

    5. Place them around the meat. Drizzle a bit of olive oil on the kibbeh and garnish with chopped parsley.

    6. To eat, use an onion petal as a sort of spoon to scoop up the meat. Then, eat the meat, onion, spoon, and all.
