TO MAKE KUBBE--Recipe--(Stuffing)

100g of mutton

1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil

1 1/2 tablespoons onion (cut finely)

1/3 teaspoon all spice

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 tablespoon flour. Mince mutton once or twice. Fry onion until brown and add minced mutton, all spice, salt and flour.

(Outer cover): 450g lean meat, 150-200 g flour, 1 teaspoon all spice , 1 nutmeg, a pinch powdered red pepper, dash pepper.

Mince meat three times and mix all ingredients together in a bowl.

More meat and less flour for outer cover creates better consistency and taste.

Grind the mixture three times.

Disassemble by reversing the steps from 5-3 to remove Cutting Plate and Cutting Blade.

7 Place Kubbe Attachment A and B onto Feed Screw shaft together, fitting protrusions in the slots.

8 Screw Cap into place until tight. Do not over tighten.

9 Following the same steps as in 5-6, make the cylindrical outer cover.

From kubbe as illustrated below and deep fry.


When the circuit breaker automatically stops the motor, or when the motor continues to function but no meat comes out of Cutting Plate, due to jamming of bone or other materials, switch off., Do not switch on.

Press CIRCUIT BREAKER to reset.

Press OFF/REVERSE to clear jamming of bone or other materials. Reverse operation will continue for as long as OFF/REVERSE is pressed, Clean the unit. (See "To clean" below.)

I am told alot of people, on the internet want to buy a meat grinder for a Raw Dog Diet. We have sold many meat grinders, that were the name brand Villaware, and Maverick, but both of them from the same mfg, are out of production and discontinued now. We have been selling the New Maverick MM5501 for $99.00, and this Alfa Model for this purpose now to customers on the internet, who want to grind up soft bones for their pets to eat. Maverick and Alfa and Pierce, DO NOT advise you and DO NOT tell you to grind bones in any meat grinder. You are doing so at your own risk !

The Unit has been on the market approx. 3 yrs, i am told, from Alfa. (AS OF 10-28-2008)
