I am a real fan of Greek food. Who isn't? I decided a few months ago to try my hand at lamb. I didn't grow up eating lamb and it isn't a very familiar meat in my circle friends and family now days either. I found some at Sam's wholesale and it was affordable enough for me to give it a try. I think this recipe makes lamb very easy and not so intimidating. The sauce is a traditional yogurt sauce that really compliments the meat. I served my kabobs with pita bread, roasted potatoes, and salad. It was a feast!
1 boneless leg of lambJuice of 1 lemon
1/4 c olive oil
1T fresh oregano (you could substitute dried just reduce it to 1t)
1T chopped garlic
1 red onion
Cube meat into 1 1/2 to 2 inch chunks. Marinate in lemon juice, oil, oregano, and garlic for 2-3 hrs. Skewer meat occasionally alternating with onion chunks. Grill over medium heat for about 10-15 mins. Allow meat to rest before removing from skewers.
16 oz plain yogurt (greek yogurt is nice and thick for this)1 cucumber grated and drained
1t chopped garlic
1T olive oil
2t red wine vinegar
Combine ingredients and allow the sauce's flavor to develop in the fridge for about 2 or 3 hrs. It tastes even better the next day! Serve this sauce cold with the lamb.
