Immigrant Kitchens: Syrian Kibbeh

In the latest entry from Immigrant Kitchens, Lindsay Sterling learns how to make Syrian Kibbeh from Asraa Ghazal (read the story, get the recipe and see the photos).

An Iraqi mother who lives with her husband and three kids in a Portland recently taught me how to make a Syrian food called kibbeh. Kibbeh are made of bulgur wheat, onions, spices, and ground beef or lamb, formed into the shape of lemons and deep-fried. Asraa, my teacher, learned how to make them from a Syrian friend when she was living in Syria after she fled Iraq.
