Lamb Kabobs with Yogurt Sauce Recipe

Lamb Kabobs with Yogurt Sauce Recipe

I make these whenever I find lamb stew chunks at the meat counter. I've served it to people who aren't fond of lamb but enjoyed the flavor of these kabobs.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 pound sirloin lamb roast, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 6 medium fresh mushrooms
  • 1 medium zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1-1/2 cups hot cooked couscous

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Pour 1/3 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add lamb. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • 2. Pour 1 tablespoon marinade into a small bowl. Stir in yogurt; cover and refrigerate. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting. Drain and discard marinade from lamb. On two metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread lamb, mushrooms and zucchini.
  • 3. Grill kabobs, covered, over medium heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until lamb reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°), basting frequently with reserved marinade. Serve with couscous and yogurt mixture. Yield: 2 servings.
