Kebab with Bay Leaves (Defneli Kebap)
1 lb boneless chicken/turkey or beef, chopped
½ lb mushroom, washed and sliced in half
¼ cup olive oil
5-6 bay leaves
1 tbsp soy sauce
½-1 cup hot water
1 tbsp salt to taste
¼ tsp paprika
¼ tsp black pepper
¼ tsp cumin
In a pot, cook the meat/chicken/turkey chunks over medium heat till the juice is gone. I’ve used turkey, but you can use any kind of meat for this recipe. Then add bay leaves and spices. Wash or brush gently the mushrooms, make sure not to soak them in water. Cut them in half and add into the pot. Sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Add olive oil, soy sauce, salt and hot water. Close the lid and simmer over low-medium heat till the meat is soft (for about 15-20 minutes).
Serve Kebab with Bay Leaves warm.
