Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Stir together olive oil, lemon juice, wine, and garlic; season with salt, pepper, oregano, rosemary, and bay leaf. Toss lamb with marinade until evenly combined, then pour into a resealable plastic bag, and marinate in refrigerator at least 24 hours.

  • Position oven rack to its top setting and set oven to broil.

  • Remove lamb from marinade and thread onto metal skewers; reserve marinade. Thread onion wedges, green peppers, and mushrooms onto separate metal skewers. Brush vegetables with reserved marinade.

  • Broil the skewers on a broiler pan, turning frequently. Cook onions for 12 minutes, lamb for 10 minutes, green pepper for 7 minutes, and the mushrooms for 3 minutes. Remove from oven, and allow to cool until cool enough to handle.

  • Remove skewers from ingredients and set aside. Reassemble skewers, alternating lamb, onions, green peppers, mushrooms, and tomatoes. Place onto broiler pan and brush again with marinade. Discard remaining marinade.

  • Broil skewers again to finish cooking, turning frequently until the lamb is medium-rare and the vegetables begin to blacken in spots, 5 to 7 minutes.

EXCELLENT Recipe! I'm half Armenian and this is good stuff! The only thing to add is just a pinch of white vinegar, it helps to take away the strong taste of the lamb. Other than that, this recipe is perfect Read More

This was ok, I was hoping for somthing great. My hubby is half armenian & I made this to surprise him. The lamb was pretty good, but we were both hoping for it to be a little more saucey. It didn't have a whole lot of flavor. Not sure if I will make it again, but if I do...I will definatley have to spice it up a bit. Too plain for our taste. Read More

I was using beef so we liked this recipe very much. Normally when we cook lamb we use greek marinades which have a heavy flavor of lemon and seasonings. This was lighter and did not overpower the beef. I did not follow the instructions on how to cook the kabobs though - did it my usual way. Thanks submitter. Read More

As a fellow "Armo" it was wonderful to see this recipe here!:) I made a few adjustments use red wine instead of white and lots of fresh parsley instead of the dried herbs and marinade this all with onions overnight! THE BEST! Read More

My first attempt at Lamb Shish Kabobs....it was Awesome! We raise lamb and sell meats so I am trying different recipes to recommend to our customers. This is wonderful and easy. I omitted the wine since I didn't have any. Cooked this up for a tasting gathering and all enjoyed. Make sure you have good lamb preferably from the farmer who raised it. Check out your local farm markets. Makes a difference. And we appreciate your support. Read More
