Kebab with Yogurt
Turkish Recipe
2 lbs. lamb, from leg, cut in 1 inch cubes
3 Pides (Pide is slightly leavened bread, for this dish you may obtain pides from a Turkish Restaurant)
5 Tbls. butter or margarine
2 medium tomatoes (very ripe)

500 gr. unflavored natural yogurt
1 large tomato
6 green peppers
1/2 Tbls. red pepper


Place pides on a grill and heat both sides gently. After cubing the pides, put them on a preheated plate and top off with 2 1/2 Tablespoons of melted butter or margarine. Mix well and set aside. Marinate the cubed meat in onion juice and olive oil. Skewer the meat cubes, leaving 1/2 inch between each meat cube, place skewers 2 inches about moderate coal fire and grill all sides until golden brown for 4-5 minutes.
While the kebabs are being grilled, peel and dice the medium tomatoes, put in a pan and cook gently for 2 minutes. Spread the cooked tomato sauce on the pides, beat the yogurt with a fork and add on top of the tomato sauce. Place the kebab again evenly and decoratively on each plate, top with red pepper and melted butter or margarine.
Slice the tomato and grill very gently while grilling the green peppers well. Top with the grilled tomato and green pepper slices and serve hot!
