minced lamb

Discussion in 'Cookery' started by cosmos, Feb 19, 2011.

  1. My neighbour has just popped round with the contents of his fridge as he has to go away for a week including a lb of minced lamb. I would normally think of lamb burgers but am hoping that someone has a better/different idea.
    Thanks

    Kofta, moussaka, I have a recipe somewhere for using minced lamb to make like a donner kebab. You can do a kofta tagine or curry, shepherd's pie is easy, kibbeh, the easiest would be to do the kibbeh in a tray.

    Sorry about the double post. But Kibbeh

    Divide the lamb mince in two, sort of 200g and 300g, to the 300g add 100g soaked bulghur wheat and a grated onion, salt and pepper, teasp each cumin and coriander, mix well together. With the other 200g, gently fry, in a little oil, a finely chopped onion and some garlic, add the rest of the lamb mince and a good heaped teasp ground cinnamon, same of cumin and coriander. add a good handful of pine nuts as well. Cook for about 5 mins.

    Next using a metal tin about 8" x 10", put half the bulghur wheat and lamb mix, spread out and press down firmly, add the lamb and pinenuts mix on top again spread out and press down, top with the rest of the bulghur wheat mix, press down and smooth over. Mark in diamond shapes and bake at 160C for about 40mins. Serve with rice and salad, tomato chilli sauce or yoghourt with it as well.

  15. Lapin, the kofta with chili sauce was delicious! I did it with roasted smoked sweet potato (perhaps not authentic, but thet went together very well) and a coriander yoghurt.
    Thank you for the recipe, I've copied it into my book.
    I realised that I have made kibbeh before although a long time ago - time to revive it i think.

    Thanks, it's actually a genuine Palestinian/Lebanese recipe. I adore the kofta and always do it for BBQ'a here. Glad you enjoyed it.

    Thanks, it's nice made into small balls and served on cocktail sticks with dips, eg the tomato/chilli and the yoghurt/mint, but also add hoummos and guacamole. Add falafel as well with the same dips.
