 Ingredients List

  • 1 lg Onion; peeled and cut into
  • ;1/8 inch slices & separated
  • ;into rings
  • 2 tb Olive oil
  • 4 tb Lemon juice, fresh
  • 2 tb Salt
  • 1/2 ts Black pepper; freshly ground
  • 2 lb Lamb, lean boneless; prefer
  • ;from the leg, trimmed of
  • ;excess fat and cut into 2
  • ;inch cubes
  • 1 lg Tomato; firm, ripe, cut
  • ;crosswise into 4 slices
  • 1 lg Green pepper; cut into
  • ;quarters, seeded & deribbed
  • 2 tb Heavy cream


Drop the onion rings into a deep bowl and sprinkle them with the olive
oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add the lamb and turn the pieces about
with a spoon to coat them well. Marinate at room temperature for at least
2 hours, or in the refrigerator for 4 hours, turning the lamb occasionally.
Light a layer of coals in a charcoal broiler and let them burn until a
white ash appears on the surface, or preheat a stove broiler to its highest
Remove the lamb from the marinade and string the cubes tightly on 3 or 4
long skewers, pressing them firmly together. Thread the tomato slices and
green pepper quarters alternately on a separate skewer. If you are broiling
the lamb in a stove, suspend the skewers side by side across the length of
a roasting pan deep enough to allow a 1 inch space below the meat.
Brush the meat evenly on all sides with the cream. Broil 4 inches from
the heat, turning the skewers occasionally, until the vegetables brown
richly and the lamb is done to your taste. For pink lamb, allow about 10
minutes; for well done lamb, which is more typical of Middle Eastern
cooking, allow about 15 minutes. Watch the vegetables carefully; they will
take less time to cook than the lamb and should be removed when done.
Slide the lamb off the skewers onto heated individual plates. Serve with
pilav and the broiled tomato and green pepper.
