Kebbeh bil sinieh – Baked bulgur and ground beef pie

Kebbeh (or kibbeh) is a dish made with bulgur and ground meat which is very popular in Levantine cuisine. This version simplifies the traditional recipe by making a layered pie, which is cooked in the oven, avoiding deep frying. Serve hot or at room temperature with a taratur sauce or garlic yogurt.

  • 1 onion, slivered 
  • 1½ lbs ground beef
