My boyfriend said it was the best thing I ever made. I used lamb instead of beef. After browning and draining fat from meat, I added 1 Tbsp of each of the spices, used 2 oz of tomato paste instead of chopped tomatoes, slowly stirred in about 1/2 to 1 c water as needed to help form a dense stew mixture, let it simmer open for a while to let the spices infuse, and then followed all the other directions. One thing the recipe didn't mention, was that as you roll the phyllo dough, you want to fold the ends in as you turn the cigar, that way your meat mixture wont spill out, and it looks nicer. Came out awesome, made 10 cigars, they were pretty big.
