      My husband requested this for his birthday dinner - it was a big hit! I used refrigerated biscuit dough instead of phyllo and it worked great. We decided that next time we'd like for the inside to be a little more moist so we're searching for an Indian style sauce to add to the meat. The combination of cinnamon and sumaq (also spelled sumac and found in the ethnic food aisle of local grocery) was really interesting - in a good way! Thanks for the recipe. We'll definitely make this one again.

      I made this for supper tonight, it was very yummy and fairly easy to make. I'll definitely be making this one again. Next time, I think I'll use wonton or eggroll wrappers instead of puffed pastry just to see how that turns out and if it's any easier. I'll also add a bit more cinnamon, but that's just because we like that kick that it gives flavor. I'm posting a pic. I'm also taking one with me to work for lunch tomorrow. Good Job!!! Thanks a bunch!!
