This recipe comes from the cookbook published by my grandmother-in-law's Armenian Orthodox church. I have to give it back to my mother-in-law, so I'm transcribing the good recipes here. We like this best with a combination of lean beef and lamb. Syrian pepper is a common spice blend used in Syrian and Armenian cooking; I've posted a recipe for it under my profile. If you don't have an oven-safe skillet, combine the ingredients and bake in a buttered baking pan.
