Red Kubbeh Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Abba Gimel

Kubbeh is a small pocket of dough that is stuffed with ground beef. Kubbeh for soup is usually boiled, whereas Kubbeh served on a platter is fried. Grocery stores in Israel and increasingly in the United States offer frozen packages of Kubbeh that are ready to drop into a vegetable soup. Enjoy this traditional recipe for kosher Kubbeh Soup, or Marak Kubbeh in Hebrew. I found MirJ has a great Kubbeh recipe, Meat or Mushroom Kubbeh or you can use frozen store bought kubbeh.
