We've eaten Kibbee for many years...even made some at a cooking class way back. Yesterday we went to a Mediterranean restaurant that had Kubedah Kabob on the menu. I didn't order that - there were too many other wonderful dishes from which to choose. Kubedah looks like Kibbee and the ingredients appear to be similar but apparently they are two different dishes. Can someone tell me the difference/similarities? Thanks.

Kubedah Kabob is ground/shredded beef mixed with onions, herbs, and spices and then put on a stick and roasted over fire like a shish kabob.

Kibbee is totally different but the center part is somewhat similar because it is ground/shredded beef mixed with onions, herbs, and spices but then stuffed into a delicious bulgar wheat shell shaped like a football that also has meat mixed with it. This is then usually fried, although traditionally it is eaten raw as well.

Persian food, probably my most favorite cuisine in the world (and I don't know half of the names of the foods).

I do know koobideh because I order that at any Persian restaurant. Usually a combination with chicken breast pieces or a piece of filet mignon. I think they call it soltani?

I think koobideh would refer to ground or shredded meat with other stuff added, not pieces, i.e. not just cut up chunks. It's ground up really small, as in minced. Could include chicken I suppose but beef, or lamb, is more traditional.
