Kebabs are street food in many Middle Eastern countries, but here in the United States, they’re often the highlight of backyard cookouts. These kebabs take you on a flavor trip to the Mediterranean. Chunks of lamb are marinated in fresh lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin and oregano, and then are skewered with chunks of red bell pepper and fresh mushrooms.
Serve the kebabs one night as the featured entrée in our Mediterranean Grill menu, and then stuff the leftover lamb and vegetables into pita breads for delicious sandwiches the next day.
Preheat grill on high for 5 minutes while you prepare the kebabs. Drain marinade from lamb pieces and thread on skewers, alternating with the pepper chunks and mushrooms. Grill 5 to 7 minutes on one side. Turn and grill 5 minutes more. Test with a sharp knife to determine doneness and grill longer, according to preference.
