    Sue Lau's Note:

    These are little lamb/beef kebabs that are served like a sandwich on pita bread or nane lavash, your choice. Goes great with a salad and rice pilaf to complement the meal.

      I grew up eating Kafta. This is a good recipe except that to have it the Lebanese way, I used all beef meat, omitted the cumin and chili powder. Used instead 1 teaspoon allspice. The sauce is also very nice, you can also use dried mint (1 tsp), if destired.
