Luleh Kebab
When I lived in Tucson, AZ, our Armenian club raised money each year by serving Luleh Kebab in pita bread at the annual fall ethnic festival.
1 pound ground lamb or beef chuck
1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
1 med onion, chopped fine
1/3 cup chopped parsley
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/3 cup tomato sauce
1/3-1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
pinch Kamoon
 olive oil

  1. Mix all ingredients together. Shape on skewers like fingers 4" long by 1 1/4" thick.
  2. Brush with olive oil.
  3. Grill over hot coals or place in shallow pan and broil close to heat. Turn over when brown, about 5 min. per side. Brush occasionally with olive oil.
  4. Serve wrapped in pita bread and top with Madzoon or tahini sauce
