Beef Kibbe Kebabs



A few days ago I watched one programme on BBC Entertainment channel about Turkish cuisine. And of course there were kebabs with hand chopped lamb, lots of meze and fresh vegetables. Mouth-watering at its least! So today it's kebab day at home, however, more Middle-Eastern than Turkish . Kibbe means meatball in Arabic and they are traditionally made with lamb, bulgur and fresh herbs. I decided to use beef as that was the only meat at home. But feel free to try lamb, turkey or even chicken.

What we need:

400gr of ground beef
150ml of fine bulgur
1 teaspoon of paprika
a good pinch of cumin
a good pinch of all spice
2 tbsp of olive oil
1 tbsp of flour
1 onion
2 cloves of garlic
some parsley

lavash and simple onion/ parsley salad with lemon for serving

What we have to do:

1. Peel the onion and garlic and grate them with a fine grater. Finely chop the parsley.
2. Put the beef into a bowl, add the spices, olive oil, bulgur, grated onion, garlic, parsley and flour. Mix it well together.
3. Put the meat on metal or wooden skewers. Let it rest in a fridge for 15 minutes.
4. Heat the grill, then brush the kebabs witth olive oil again and put them on the grill for 5-6 minutes. Turn them once.
5. Serve with lavash, simple salad. A spoonful of yogurt would go well as well. Enjoy!

Receptas Lietuviskai - Jautienos Kibbe Kebabai


Kibbe- reiskia 'kotletai' Arabu kalboje. Tradiciskai sis kebabas gaminamas is smulkiai pjaustytos avienos, bulguro ( apvirtu ir dziovintu kvietiniu kruopu) ir zoleliu. Si karta as gaminau is maltos jautienos. Jei nera galimybiu gauti bulguro, naudokite Lietuvoje lengvai randamas perlines ar kvietines kruopas, kurias as pries dedant apvirciau. Smulkaus bulguro virti nereikia. Beja, visgi dar ir kuskuso kruopos cia puikiai tiktu!

Reikia:
400gr maltos ar kapotos
jautienos
150ml smulkaus bulguro
1 a.s. maltos paprikos
ziupsnelis
kumino ir kvepianciuju pipiru
druskos ir juoduju pipiru
2 v.s. alyvuogiu
aliejaus
1 v.s. miltu
1 tarkuotas svogunas
2 skilteles tarkuoto
cesnako
petrazoliu

Kaip gaminame:

1. Nulupti ir sutarkuoti
smulkia tarka nedideli svoguna ir cesnako skilteles.
2. I dubeni sudeti
jautiena, suberti prieskonius, druska, tarkuotus cesnakus ir svoguna, alieju,
miltus, smulkintas petrazoles. Gerai viska ismaisyti.
3. Suformuoti kebabus,
aplipinant mesa ant mediniu ar metliniu iesmeliu.
4. Aptepti aliejumi ir deti ant ikaitinto griliaus. Kepti 5-6 minutes, viena karta apverciant.
5.Pateikti su lavasu, bei paprastomis svogunu, petrazoliu salotomis su citrinu
sultimis. Valgyti reiketu ant lavaso dedant kebaba, atsargiai istraukiant
iesmeli, tada deti keleta sauktu salotu, apslakstyti citrinos sultimis,
suvinioti i lavasa ir skanauti! Saukstelis naturalaus jogurto cia taip pat nepamaisys! Skanaus!
