Usually i make this using lamb meat and forming the meat into patties and grilling for greek burgers. However it was cold outside and i had elk-so i made this instead! all i have to say is hallelujah!!

2Brown meat in large saucepan with a bit of olive oil. While browning, once meat is brown yet still very moist (don't drain), put in mint leaves, cumin, and salt and pepper.
3slice eggplant and cover with mixture of olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano. either grill or saute.
