Chef's Note
Lamb is best eaten pink, so the suggested cooking time is 10 minutes. However, if you prefer it well done, as they do in Turkey and Middle Eastern countries, factor in another two minutes per side.
Ingredients for 4 servings
- 1 kg (2 1/4 lb.) boneless Lamb, excess fat removed and cut into cubes
- 1 onion, coarsely chopped
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1 large tomato, cut into wedges

- 2 tbsp. heavy cream or yogurt
- Salt and pepper
  1. In an earthenware dish, place the onion, the pepper and the lamb; add the lemon juice and olive oil; season with salt and pepper; let marinate for 4 hours in the refrigerator (2 hours at room temperature):
  2. preheat the oven to broil;
  3. divide the lamb cubes amongst four skewers; brush with cream;
  4. prepare four other vegetable skewers (one for each guest) with the wedges of onion, peppers and tomatoes;
  5. place the skewers over a grill placed over a deep pan (to catch the cooking liquid);
  6. grill for 5 minutes on each side;
  7. check the vegetables for doneness (they tend to be ready before the lamb);
