African-Style Shish Kebab

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by LifeIsGood

A fun twist on your average shishkebab. The recipe calls for the use of either lamb or beef. I think it may also be good on chicken. Serve with rice. Enjoy! Note: the timing does not include marinating.

So incredibly good and so easy to put together. Loved the flavors and I used some beef vs. lamb. Layered the kabobs with red onion, cherry tomatoes and some zucchini squash. Also used mushrooms and red bell peppers. Will be making often this summer.
