Kibe, The perfect game day food

Featured
Available at any lunch counter or bar in Brazil Kibe, kibbeh, kibbe, kubbeh, kebbah, kubbi, or even quibe however you spell it this Arabic meatball is always delicious.  While several versions of this dish exist this instructable will show you how to make a Brazilian style kibe (pronounced 'Key - Bee' by my Brazilian friends)


Why is this the perfect game day food? Here are some reasons
1. Beef is the first ingredient (there's a reason the veggie plate is the last item touched at the Superbowl party)
2. Your significant other can't give you grief about eating them (Whole Grain wheat is the second ingredient)
3. It's Fried (it can also be baked)
4. It's shaped like a football
5.All your friends are tired of the dish you have brought to every party since the turn of the century. So bring something new and become more popular

Step 1: Ingredients

Here is my basic ingredient list:
2 Lbs Ground Beef, I find ultra-lean beef doesn't seem to stick together as well when forming and don't go leaner than 90/10
2 cups Bulgar Wheat, or cracked wheat if your grocery store is out of bulgar (not as good but it works in a pinch)
2 Tbs chopped fresh mint the finer the chop the better
4 cloves minced garlic
1 Tbs chopped parsley, or 2 tsp of dried if your grocery store doesn't have fresh (I know my grocery store sucks)
1/2 cup minced onion (Not pictured but this time it wasn't my grocery stores fault)
2 tsp salt (more or less to taste)
Black Pepper to taste

I do play with my recipe from batch to batch but I never omit the first three ingredients

Good, I make mine with a bit of garlic too but everyone tells me kibe is not supposed to have garlic.
These sound super yummy. :D
