Cheat’s kibbeh

Well, not really kibbeh, but lamb and bulghur patties that are in a kibbeh style. Kibbeh is a classic Lebanese dish that uses lamb and bulghur to make lovely crisp shelled balls. These are much quicker to make.

I soaked some bulghur wheat in boiling water until it was soft and then mixed it in with minced lamb, salt and pepper, chopped onion, chopped dill, ground allspice and some mild chilli powder.

Then I shaped the mixture into patties and cooked them in the oven on a baking sheet for about 45 minutes, turning them once.

I served them with a simple salad, pittas and chilli sauce for a nice light evening meal.
