2 nights ago (1/11/2014), I dreamed how I was putting this food together and came with this recipe. in the morning when I woke up, the only thing I was thinking was to put this together, and for lunch my Sweet & Spicy Turkey was ready to serve. And my family and friends loved it.
In "Categories" asked me about origin!!!!, but this is from "myself and I came with this recipe" which is mixed origin ,also I'm originally from Iran which our food is not "Middle Eastern" because it is very different, but because there is no "new" or "Iran" I had to chose "Middle Eastern" which is not correct.

  6. When the juices start boiling we put the meat one by one, slowly in juice and lower the hit to cook the meat in juice for 30 to 45 minutes.
  7. After 30-45 minutes turn up the hit and let the juice steam faster and fry the meat inside the thick sauce of juices to look brownish color
