    Chef Jay 67's Note:

    This is named after the forth largest city in Turkey. The trick to this is that you really should let marinate over night for optimum taste. Sumac is also used in this recipe it can be found in any Middle Eastern store or online. The sumac can be omitted but it really should be found and added. It really makes a difference.

      This was wonderful and very similar to the adana kebob I had at a restaurant one time. I left out the sumac but I'm certain that if I had used it it would be exactly like the adana kebob I was trying to recreate. I left the meat to marinade for 24 hours before cooking. I also made the yogurt sauce ahead of time but then forgot it was in the refrigerator :( !!! I will certainly make this again but next time I'll remember the yogurt and take the time to find sumac.
