  1. Any suggestions on other dishes to complete or complement this meal?


  1. Over the top! These were so good all DH could say was "Keep this recipe - throw out all the others." I followed the rub recipe exactly and let them sit in the fridge overnight. The flavors were over the top delicious. I did change up the yogurt as I only had cilantro and it was perfect but I will make a point of having mint in the house next time I make this. I did not grill but used the Char-Broil infrared cooker. What a perfect meal. Thank you for sharing!
  2. Now that I sit down to review the recipe, I realize that I completely forgot the dipping sauce :oops: so let me just say that even without sauce, these kabobs are wonderful! The seasonings are a well balanced blend, with no one item overpowering the others.I was in a rush, so these sat with the rub on them for about 15 minutes before hitting the grill, and still, the flavors of the seasonings came through. I grilled for about 3 minutes per side for a perfect medium. Definitely a make again!
  3. Outstanding flavor! I cut a boneless leg of lamb into pieces and marinated for 3 days the first time I made it, 5 days the second time. I also cut larger chunks the second time since I was serving them as a part of a Middle Eastern themed dinner party. They got rave reviews both times.
  4. ok hid these from me until this month! They are the BEST lamb kabobs ever. Sure i like rosemary and lemonjuice etc, but oh the flavors here...what a fabulous dish. Makes me think of bstilla without the work lol. I cut it in half, and i amgoing to eat all 1lb 1/2 myself tonight!
  5. Loved these Annacia! Interesting flavors and complementary sauce. You're right - they feed a crowd so we'll invite someone over next time we make these ;) Thanks!
