This is a dowry recipe I brought with me from western Pennsylvania. To fully enjoy this dish, just serve it as a snack or appetizer with some hot bread and a beverage. It's nice to serve at parties, and I like it as a late-night snack, too! It can be made the day before, and it also freezes well.


  • 2-1/2 pounds boneless leg of lamb, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup white wine or broth of choice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • Hot peppers to taste, chopped


  1. Combine marinade ingredients in shallow dish; add lamb and marinate overnight or at least 5 hours, turning lamb occasionally.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Thread lamb on skewers; broil or grill on medium-hot grill for 7-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°).
  3. For the dipping sauce, in a blender, add all the sauce ingredients. Cover and process on high until smooth. Serve with lamb.
