These went over quite well at our BBQ
fan-freaking-tastic! i thought i didn't like lamb but this recipe proved me wrong! i added a little more salt to the marinade than called for and it was just right for our tastes.
This recipe was quite easy despite the long list of ingredients. I used Greek yogurt and skipped the cheese cloth step for the tzaziki, and it still came out great. Also, I used flank steak instead of lamb (didn't have any at my grocery store), and it was almost as good as the lamb I've had at Greek restaurants. My husband, who would never have eaten most of the ingredients on their own, said that the "whole" was absolutely delisous! I agree!
I only made the marinade part of this recipe as I had cubed lamb that I wanted to grill on skewers and I had all the ingredients on hand. It marinated about 8 hours. It was yummy. My family liked it except for my picky son. Way too sophisticated for him! I served it with Nan's Orzo Pasta Salad but I just put it in tonight so I can't create the link. It was a perfect combo. Thanks for posting.
Love! Love this recipe. Thank you for the clear instructions. I have made this a number of times. Friends telling me to review with my changes. They were kind of big ones, but important in order to get my picky MN boys to try it. Here goes: I use venison in place of the lamb. Fresh mozzarella in place of the feta. Balsamic vinegar instead of red wine vingar. Half organic greek yogurt and half sour cream and fresh mint. The result is a milder flavor but such a very very good way to intro some culture in the kitchen. Thanks for sharing.
This is such a great recipe! I make it for our summer barbeques, and have never seen any left over. I substitute the lamb for pork tenderloin, and try to marinade it for 24 hours before cooking.
Sensational flavours! This is a plan-ahead recipe because of the double marinading - the lamb and the vegetables - and SO worth the effort of forward-planning. Wonderully clear instructions too. Just loved all the blend of flavours in the meat and the vegetables and I always love tzaziki (which I made with Greek yoghurt) - and so did my guests. We all ate too much it was so yummy: the consensus was to skip dessert. Totally scrumptious. Thanks for sharing!
If there were 10 stars, or more, I would award them to this. There was a riot in the kitchen after the teenage boys got a first taste of the skewers and were trying to get all the rest for themselves. With the marinated vegetables and feta, tzatziki and pita, my gracious! What a feed!
