The Kibbeh meatballs are easy to make, if a little putzy, and delicious. They taste equally good with mutton or lamb and the recipe is forgiving enough to sub in/out ingredients depending on your taste. I liked the extra kick from the garlic in the sauce.
Fantastic! My husband says these are the best thing I have ever made him for dinner. We are going to serve them on toothpicks for a party this weekend as well. Would certainly recommend!
Super-tasty! I didn't do the food processing step, as I had limited time and wasn't worried about it getting crumbly (which it did, a little). Also, I used lean beef, because I can't get myself to eat lamb. The spices are SUCH a good combination (I used about half the salt recommended), and the bulgur made end-product taste lighter than most meatballs. We served it on whole wheat pitas, but with all the bulgur, I think they'd be okay on their own as well (some people might feel like it was too much grain to have both the bulgur and a pita).
So good! Will make over and over again. I couldn't find lean ground lamb at the store, so I used 96/4 ground beef. I also didn't have allspice, so I used nutmeg. Even with the substitutions they were really good. My fiance loved them. He ate them with the yogurt sauce in a whole wheat pita.
This is a wonderful dish both together and separately. I made the recipe exactly as written. The yogurt sauce is wonderful and I would make this for veggies or pita chips for a party on it's own. I would also make these for a party by making mini meatballs. Next time I will try baking them a la Ina Garten instead of frying to see how that works.
We enjoyed the meatballs and yogurt sauce. Served with hummus and pita. I would make this for company, but only a casual event with friends that I know like this type of greek tapas.
