Adana Kebab

Adana Kebab created by Manny G.

This is named after the forth largest city in Turkey. The trick to this is that you really should let marinate over night for optimum taste. Sumac is also used in this recipe it can be found in any Middle Eastern store or online. The sumac can be omitted but it really should be found and added. It really makes a difference.

    The directions on this recipe are out of order or its all a joke: This step is never addressed: "Mix red onion,sumac,lemon juice in small bowl cover and put in fridge" (after the spices are all mixed with the meat and placed in the fridge overnight). Do I mix all this before cooking or i wash my feet with it after. Why do you bother to post a recipe if you dont care of the details.

    I made up the lamb mix but this recipe reads very crazy...so I added the spices to the lamb as listed. However, I am wondering if they were to be added to the yogurt...for the sauce???? it lists yogurt....but nothing said about the spices ---only in the directions to add spices to the meat. Not a well written recipe. I think it will taste fine...but the recipe should be fixed.. PK
