Lamb Kebab Ingredients:
  • 1 Boneless American Lamb Leg trimmed & cubed
  • 3 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 1 tbsp of Dill finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp of Onion Powder
  • 1 tbsp of Cumin
  • 2 tsp of Cinnamon
  • 2 tsp of Coriander
  • 1 Lemon juiced
  • Salt & Black Pepper to taste
  • Olive Oil
Mint Yogurt Sauce Ingredients:
  • 1 cup of Plain Yogurt
  • 1 tbsp of Mint chopped
  • 2 Garlic Cloves pressed
  • 1 Lemon juiced
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  1. In a bowl, add all the spices & herbs for the American Lamb Kebab but leave out the cubed lamb. Mix thoroughly and pour a small portion of the marinade into a small bowl. Use this later for grilling. Add cubed lamb to the large batch of marinade and mix. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 2 hours.

  2. Build a fire in your grill or fire pit for direct cooking. Make at medium to medium-high heat.
  3. Pull out marinated lamb and skewer. Place skewers over the fire and let cook for about 5-6 minutes per side or until the internal temperature hits 130-135F for medium rare. Lather the kebabs with the reserve spices & herbs marinade that did not touch the lamb.
  4. While kebabs are cooking, mix all ingredient for the Mint Yogurt Sauce.
  5. Pull kebabs off grill and let rest for 4-5 minutes. Top with Mint Yogurt Sauce or dip, and enjoy!
