Tabbouleh, is probably the most famous recipe in the Lebanese cuisine. As many says, tabbouleh is a labor of love as it requires a LOT of time in the kitchen to finely chop ingredients to perfection. I know there are probably hundreds if not thousands of recipes out there for tabbouleh salad, so what makes mine different, it came from the heart and soul of a Lebanese friend who is very angry at what is happening to the Lebanese tabbouleh
Syrian Kubba Halab - the kind with the rice/potato outside. hers calls for dried lime. Where I might find that is... beyond me. She'd probably die if she knew I would be eating them dipped in 1000 isl. dressing.
Egyptian recipe: kofta. I normally brown the kofta on top of stove then I add half a cup of water and when it starts to boil I cover the pan and continue cooking in a 370 F preheated oven for 20m then uncover for 15m or until completely dry - I also prefer to add 1tsp or more of allspice to every lb of ground meat
