FROM: Susan On November 7, 2009 This was just as good as any I have had at a Middle Eastern restaurant. I have been passing this around to lots of my friends. I can't wait to make it for my son-in-law who is from Beirut.
I really didn't know what to expect from this, 'cause I've never been much interested in lamb dishes (a carry-over from my college days when it was served in the student cafeteria, POORLY served, it seems), but seeing the review from a trusted chef, I took it on! Must say that I was very pleased with the results! This is definitely a TASTE TREAT for anyone who has had a BAD experience with eating lamb! The combination of spices was OUTSTANDING, & it did wonders for the lamb (well, actually, it did wonders for my taste buds)! I appreciate the opportunity of being able to make your wonderful recipe!

Once I had everything in place on the counter, Food Network style, this was an incredibly easy recipe. I used ground mutton (always available here in the Middle East). The baharat spice mix gave this a lovely Persian flavor. I used whole wheat pitas and added some za'atar for extra flavor. This was a fun supper, the kids had a blast helping and mixing their own.
