Lebanese Dinner

In this picture you’ll see a homemade Lebanese dinner.  I made this for my husband’s birthday.  I spent all day in the kitchen preparing this meal but it was so worth it.

Chicken marinated in garlic, Kafta, Parsley salad, Fried Cubanelle peppers, Hummus, Garlic.

Kafta Recipe:

Kafta is great when served with homemade hummus to dip in.


1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 medium onion, grated
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice (I don’t put this because I don’t like allspice)
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
6 wooden or metal skewers


Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. If using wooden skewers, soak in water.

In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion, parsley, cayenne, allspice, salt and pepper until evenly blended. Divide into 6 portions, and press around one end of the skewers to form a log shape approximately 1 inch thick and 6 inches long.

Grill for 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally, until meat is no longer pink.
