      My husband is Lebanese and when I made this he said it was just like what his Mom used to make! The only thing I did different was I only had 3 onions and I added 2 cloves of garlic to the onion and pine nuts mixture. This is absolutely an authentic Lebanese dish and it is delicious!

      Really good, according to my husband and our dinner guests last night. I don't eat meat, so didn't sample any, but they certainly gave a thumbs-up! I formed it into patties and had my husband cook it on the grill, and that added a nice touch, I think. I'll use this again, for sure.

      This was really nice. I've never had kibbee before, at least not that I'm aware of. *LOL* This is a very easy recipe to make, but it's tasty... comfort food with a healthy kick from the nutritious bulgur wheat. I used lean ground beef and halved the recipe. Thanks for posting!
