July 2014 Challenge - Middle East - Page 4

Thread Starter 

And another month is over. We had a lot of nice entries, so deciding on our next host wasn't easy. However, the made-from-scratch kofteh finally made the best impression! So, without further speeches, our next host will be

 

teamfat.

 

Congratulations!

Wow. A bit surprised at this result. Ordo's stuffed pork was amazing.  Butzy's chicken shoarma was right up there - better looking pitas than mine. And the various eggplant dishes - very nice. It would be so nice if we could all sit down together and actually taste the array of dishes presented.

 

But for the moment I'll just say thanks to @GeneMachine for choosing me as the next host. And I think the August challenge will be a good one.

Congrats @teamfat !

@GeneMachine here are some details on the seasoning:

 

 

 - 3 cups of wheat for kibe (the pic shows how it looks) for each kg of grounded meat (good quality low fat) - wash it on hot water until the water gets gets clean agains (it will be white in the begining), than drain it an press the wet wheat to take some more water from it.

 - 1 tea spoon of Zattar (lebanese seazoning) - if you dont find it replace for even parts of White/black peper powder, cumin powder, cinnamon and crushed sesame seeds.

 - 1 more tea spoon of Cinnamon powder

 - 1 onion

 - 1 spring onion

 - mint leaves (to taste)

 - just a little parsley

 - Olive oil

 - Salt to taste

 

Process everything, except the grounded neet and the wheat.

Mix everithing together.

Serve with pitta bread, onion (in petals like cut) and mint leaves.

 

Enjoy!!!

 

With the same recipe, You can also make:

1) baked Kibe: in a tray, put the raw kibe layer (half inch high), than some lebanese grounded beef (cook it with chopped onion an some Zattar and salt) and cover with another raw kibe layer and bake it. (like the pic bellow, which is not mine, just to illustrate)

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

 

2) deep fried: same as previous, but the are shaped as little footballs (american football) and filled with the lebanede grounded beef and deep fried. Also not my pic.

 

 

 

 

You can also fill both with sautéed spinach.

Fond memories, this!

My Lebanese boyfriend made kibbe kebabs and served with a homemade yogurt dressing.

First dish he ever cooked for me.

 

Congrats on the win tf !

Your meatball dish was served to me by the middle eastern guy as well.
