Tava

Recipe by  

"Tava is a favorite dish in Turkey. They make it wonderful, this is a recipe that I made as close to it as I could. The best way to eat it is to wrap it in Middle Eastern Flat Bread which you can get at your local grocery store bakery or frozen section."

Admittedly I changed this recipe somewhat adding garlic, carrots and toping with Olive Oil but I found that this recipe wasn't as tasty or juicy as I would like. Generally I'm someone who likes a lot of sauce but I think it needs tahini or something like that to liven it up a bit.

This is a rather bland dish... I should have known, it being that there isn't much seasonings/spices to this dish, especially the meat... not something that I would make again.

I substituted an anaheim pepper for the green pepper, and added a pickled red pepper and extra tomato, and a couple of whole garlic cloves and this was out of this world!!!!
