Lamb Kebabs That Simply Fly Off The Plate

Lamb kebabs are beautiful, tender cubes of lamb marinated and skewered on a stick, interspersed with vegetables and grilled, roasted or barbecued to blackened perfection. Originally threaded onto long sticks and cooked over and open fire, this tasty meal originated in the Middle East, where they are called kebabs, and Greece, where they’re known as souvlaki. Whatever you call them, just don’t call your family late for dinner when you make these, because they’re best enjoyed hot and juicy. Don’t bother with cutlery and fancy prep. Fingers and full cheeks are all you need for this one.
