Thank You Miller! I made your Kebabs last night-I used tri-tip steak, and the kebabs were so tender and tasty! I also made Sue L's Luleh Kebabs, and served them over basmati rice, with a roasted tomato and egg yolk. A little Sumac sprinkled over all. Delicious! We felt like we were at one of our favorite restaurants- Tehran, in Las Palmas. Thank you for a fabulous recipe, Miller! I can't wait to make them again!
