Great appetizer, or a meal in itself when stuffed with some green salad and vinigarette dressing and eaten like a taco!


1 lb. ground lean lamb
1 1/2 cup yellow onion chopped fine
1/2 cup green bell pepper chopped fine
1/2 cup chopped Armenian or Italian parsley
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1 teaspoon of fresh sweet basil chopped
1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 can diced tomatoes
1 small can tomato paste
Cayenne pepper to taste [optinal]
Salt and pepper to taste
•Brown off the ground lamb and add the other ingredients and saute until onions
 and peppers are tender.  Refrigerate overnight to marry the flavors.

2 1/2 cups sifted all purpose flour
1 pkg. Fleishman's dry yeast dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup Crisco shortening [melted]
1/2 cup warm water
Mix the sugar and salt with the yeast to dissolve, and in a large bowl add 
sifted flour, shortening, and the yeast mixture.  Knead into a smooth soft dough.
Add a little more four or water if necessary to dough is not too dry or too 
sticky moist.  Divide the dough into a dozen balls and roll out into tortilla 
sized rounds [about 8 inches in diameter].  Place on  lightly greased baking sheets. 
Makes 12
Spoon the topping mixture on to the dough rounds  spreading evenly to the edges
 of the lahmahjoons.  Bake in preheated 450 degree oven about 20 minutes.  
Place the lahmahjoons on a large piece of foil separating each one by stacking 
them meat side to meat side and dough side to dough side and then bring the 
edges of the large piece of foil over the whole stack.  This will prevent them 
from drying out.  Serve hot or cold.  Cut the lahmahjoon into small pie wedges 
and serve as appetizers or snacks,  or fill the whole lahmahjoon with a  little 
green garden salad and fold over and eat like a taco.

NOTE:  For a quick version you may use fluffy flour tortillas instead of the 
above lahmahjoon dough.  Tortillas must also be placed on greased pans for baking.
