      Very tasty. My husband has been on my case since I brought home a Mediterranean cookbook from the library to make kibbeh. I thought the recipes in the book looked way too fussy for me to make for dinner, so I figured I could check the website formerly known as Recipezaar for something easier. Here you are! I wasn't sure what to expect, having never tried kibbeh before. I used beef, because I don't like lamb. I really enjoyed it, especially with the Greek yogurt. My husband liked it, he already has ideas for different meats and nuts to try. Lol. My 4 year old son didn't like it, but he's 4. Thanks for posting a simple way to make a fussy dish that tastes really good.

      I have used this recipe on a number of occasions using ground beef. I have served it to guests who really appreciated it and asked for the recipe. I made it using ground lamb for the first time yesterday. It was very delicious but not being used to the taste of ground lamb, I find I really prefer the beef, and will continue using ground beef in the future. It really is a terrific recipe, thanks!
