Kibbeh

This is the national dish in many middle eastern countries. It is made of burghul (cracked wheat), minced onions and finely ground lean beef, lamb, goat or camel meat. The word is derived from the Arabic kubbah or Kibbeh means "ball". British soldiers in the Middle East during the Second World War used to call these kibbeh "Syrian torpedoes".
