I served these with brown rice and a side of Broccoli Slaw Mix which I sauteed in coconut oil.
Spice Rubbed Lamb Kabobs
Makes 4 servings
1 pound pastured lamb kabob meat (I used boneless lamb sirloin, cut in bite-size pieces)
Juice and zest of one lemon
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Fresh oregano, chopped (optional)
In a coffee grinder or with a mortar and pestle grind or pulverize the sesame seeds. In a small bowl, combine the ground sesame seeds, thyme, oregano, chili powder, onion powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Place the lamb cubes in a glass casserole and sprinkle over the lemon juice, zest and dry seasoning mixture. Toss to evenly coat spices and allow to marinate at room temperature for about 30 minutes. Drizzle with a little olive oil and toss again to evenly coat with spices and oil and sprinkle with black pepper.
Thread meat cubes on skewers and grill on medium-high for 7-10 minutes until charred on all sides. Remove from grill and season with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Garnish with freshly chopped oregano, if desired.
