      This sounds so good! It takes me back to my childhood. As mentioned, eat this stuffed in a pita with rice pilaf. But be sure to offer a mixture of chopped onion and parsley. Mmmmmm! EDIT: After making this recipe, it definitely takes me back! I used small beef cubes (top round) instead of lamb. I only did the meat, not veggies. It only took about 5-7 mins on the grill so make sure you don't go far! I will be making this again and again. Thanks!!!
