Yufka Kebab

(Yufka Kebabi)

<br />
Yufka Kebab
1 or 1 1/2 Turkish yufka*
500 g lamb, cut in cubes
2 tbsp butter
3 green onions, chopped
1 cubanelle pepper, discard the seeds, cut in bite size
1 small red bell pepper, cut in bite size
1 large tomato, peeled, diced

Mozzarella cheese, grated
Cayenne pepper

Place the yufka in an oven proof tray. Lightly toast in the oven until the colour turns to light golden. Break them in medium size pieces with your hands. Then place in a serving platters.

Meanwhile, fry the lamb cubes with butter until the color of the meat lightly turns in a pan. Add in the remaining ingredients. Saute for 7-8 more minutes until the vegetables are tender. Turn the heat off.

Spoon out all over the pastries. Pastry should soak the juice of the dish. Garnish with some cheese and cayenne pepper.

Preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C). Bake until the cheese is melted, serve immediately.

2 servings.

*Turkish yufka; fresh and hand rolled sheets of dough.
I used triangle yufka sold in package. You can find these packages (whole or triangular cut pastry leaves) in Turkish or Mediterranean stores if you have any in your area. Or, you can shop from which is online Turkish grocery store:)

Are the packages of yufka frozen? I have not seen it at the grocery store, but maybe I wasn't looking in the right place. This dish sounds delicious!

in my local Turkish store, the yufka is not frozen, it's placed next to creams, cheeses and yogurts.

Is this something you could substitute egg roll wrappers for? I think you did in another recipe? I'm in New Mexico; nothing Turkish in this whole state!

You can substitute yufka in this recipe with Original Tortillas which I think you can find easily where you live:) The egg rolls are not suitable for this one.
