What is a Kubbe Attachment to a Meat Grinder?

Did you recently purchase a meat grinder to be mystified by this “kubbe attachment” among the accessories?

Or maybe you have had one for a long time but have not quite figured out what it is or what it is used for.

A tasty and sweet dish that is made by enclosing a spiced lamb in a wheat-based shell is known as kubbe which is also transliterated as koubba, kebba, or kibbe.

What is a Kubbe Attachment

So, what exactly is a Kubbe attachment? The Kubbe attachment is an attachment in form of a casing that either comes with a meat grinder or is bought one and attached to a meat grinder and is used to make the Kubbe dish. It is made of aluminum pieces which is mounted on a grinder attachment to allow for the stuffing of the spicy kebba.

Wheat flour is added to the meat grinder in addition to the kubbe attachments on the meat grinder which is used to create hollow tubes of minced meat.

This kubbe attachment helps to speed up and simplify the preparation of this dish which is really popular in Middle Eastern cuisine. In summary, the kubbe attachment shapes the outer shell and makes it ready for stuffing.

You will find a wide and different variety of recipes of the kibbeh that can be seen from many sources out there. But there is no stopping you there; you can try experimenting with different compositions of fillers as well to create a recipe that will suit your unique taste.

How to use the kubbe attachment

What is a Kubbe Attachment to a Meat Grinder?

Below, I’ll be listing in steps on how to use the kubbe attachment properly.

Step one: Unplug the Meat Grinder

First and foremost before anything is done, you would want to make sure that your meat grinder is unplugged. When you are certain of this, go ahead and take out the grinder blade and grinder plates that are found inside the meat grinder

There are two portions in which the kubbe attachment is manufactured and they are:

  • The threaded and extruder tube and
  • The ring-shaped flange which helps to hold the tube firmly

Step two: Drop the tube end through the flange

You would then proceed by dropping the end of the tube through the ring-shaped flange and then securely lock the ring-shaped flange in the region at the end of the meat grinder.

Step three: Fill the meat grinder

Fill out the hopper of the meat grinder with the kubbe dough and then plug in the meat grinder and start the motor. This, in turn, will make the kubbe attachment flip out a prolonged, holed cylindrical shaped even and thin, consistent dough.

Step four: Cut the dough

Depending on your choice, you can cut the tubes of dough into fine lengths of two to four inches or as desired and fill them up with the spiced lamb.

Seal the end of every kubbe and either fry the kubbe until it is golden brown or you can bake it until it is equally golden brown.

Can the Kubbe attachment be purchased separately

Although the kubbe attachment comes with the meat grinder in most cases, you can also purchase it separately. But something to note is that the attachment alone can be quite expensive and it will be a reasonable thing for that amount to just purchase a meat grinder with a kubbe attachment

If at this point, you have not yet purchased a meat grinder or a kubbe attachment. Below are a few electric meat grinder options that you can consider buying.
