    becy's Note:

    This is an Asian take on a Middle Eastern dish. It's best when a mouthful consists of a bit of kofte and a bit of slaw! You could also wrap it up in flatbread to make an Asian kebab. To slice and julienne the salad vegetables use a mandolin grater for the best effect.

      The combination of the red pepper and star anise was a good flavor for the pork kofte (kefte). Five spice powder would be a good substitute and somewhat easier to find--grinding the star anise was somewhat difficult. The slaw went well with the meat.
