This is a pretty versatile recipe. It's meant to be served with wooden picks, as an appetizer, but I made it into a main course and served it with lettuce leaves to wrap the beef mixture in. Either way, it's a great 'plan ahead' type of dish. Prep and cook times do not include marinating time, which is anywhere from 2 to 24 hours. I found this in a Sunset book of appetizer recipes.
