Kibbeh Nayeh (Arabic for raw kibbeh) is kibbeh flavored with different spices and served raw. Eating raw meat is popular in the Middle East and kibbeh nayeh is one of the most popular raw meat dishes in Lebanon. It is typically drizzled with olive oil and eaten with pita bread, radishes, scallions and/or cut up white onion.

Personally, I think it is delicious! I also grew up eating it. I know of many friends who have tried it as adults and loved it too, so it is definitely worth trying if it’s something you haven’t eaten before. Be sure to prepare nayeh with the freshest meat possible – see your butcher if you have one local! You will need a food processor and only a few ingredients.


1 pound of beef shoulder roast (as lean as possible) *You can also use lamb meat
1/2 cup bulgar (found in most Middle Eastern grocery stores)
*Optional* minced onion, mint, or cumin

1. Add 1/2 a pound of beef chunks with a tablespoon of crushed ice into food processor until it becomes paste-like. Remove that half and spread on a platter and then add another 1/2 a pound of beef chunks with a tablespoon of crushed ice cubes in food processor and repeat. (reason for this is to prevent meat from darkening)

2. Soak 1/2 a cup of bulgar in cold water for 15 minutes in a small bowl- drain any excess water

3. In a bowl, add all of your meat, a couple dashes of pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and soaked bulgar (as well as any other optional minced ingredients you wish to add) and mix. While mixing, make sure to keep wetting your hands because the paste will get sticky.

4. Once the meat is mixed well place on a serving plate. Remember, drizzle olive oil on your serving before eating it with pita (some people prefer eating it without olive oil)


Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
