Greek Lamb Kabobs

"We have a gas grill and use it year-round, especially to make these tender juicy kabobs. The lamb marinates overnight, and the attractive skewers can be quickly assembled the next day. --Kathy Herrola of Martinez, California"

  1. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, oregano, oil and garlic. Set aside 1/4 cup for basting; cover and refrigerate. Pour the remaining marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the lamb. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
  2. Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray before starting the grill. Drain and discard marinade. On eight metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread lamb, tomatoes, green pepper and onion. Grill kabobs, uncovered, over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side. Baste with reserved marinade. Grill 8-10 minutes longer or until meat reaches desired doneness, turning and basting frequently.

Good marinade. Made it for a family BBQ and it went over very well. A few complaints that there was too much citrus, but I'm not a fan of lamb, so I liked that the citrus overpowered the meat.

Most helpful critical review

This marinade was decent, but the lemon juice was rather overpowering. If I were to make it again, I would use substantially less and substitute it with something with a milder taste.
