    Baked Kibbe

    Filling 1: 2 lbs round steak (or lamb), trimmed of fat and ground twice 1 cup bulgar wheat,
    medium grind
    1/2 onion, grated
    2/4 tsp black pepper
    3/2 tsp salt Dash cinnamon

    Soak the bulgar wheat in water for 1/2 hour, drain well and add the meat. Mix very well.

    Filling 2:
    4/4 cup ground round
    5/2 cup grated onions
    6/2 cup pignola nuts Dash cinnamon or allspice

    In a frying pan, saute the beef with the onions. Salt and pepper to taste; add a dash of either
    cinnamon or allspice. In a separate frying pan, saute the pignola nuts is a small amount of oil
    (corn or canola). When finished, combine the pignola nuts with the beef/onion and mix well. Now,
    take a baking pan and make three layers of the above fillings. Make the bottom layer 1/4" to 1/2"
    thick using Filling 1. Then make a middle layer 1/4"-1/2" thick using Filling 2. Finally make a top
    layer 1/4"-1/2" thick using Filling 1. Cut into 1" x 1" squares while still in the pan. Brush the
    top of the kibbe with butter (optional). Bake for 30 minutes at 325 degrees. If you choose, you can
    brown the top at higher heat during the last 10 minutes of baking.

    Suggested Serving: Sadie suggests that you serve the kibbe with a cucumber salad and rice. A simple
    cucumber salad can be made by combining sliced cucumbers, yogurt, a little garlic powder or fresh
    mashed garlic, a pinch of dried mint leaves, and a touch of salt. Enjoy!
