Recipe by Mareesme

Based on a meal served in a Chicago restaurant. The waiter told me the seasonings and I guessed the quantities. The blade cut lamb chops are sold in many market as lamb shish kebab meat, making it easier!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut meat into stew-size cubes.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients for the marinade and pour over lamb in ziplock bag or non-metal pan, covered.
  3. Marinate for 5 hours, turning every so often.
  4. Skewer and grill over medium coals or gas grill until done, approximately 20 minutes, basting frequently with remaining marinade.
  5. Note: Lamb should not be cooked well-done, and should be cooked uncovered. Meat should still be somewhat pink and juicy inside. I've been told thermometer should read 150 dg. for medium-rare and 160 for medium.
