Default Lamb kebabs w/ pesto

Ole' lady wanted lamb, so I did lamb. And it was excellent.

Lamb is a little outside my wheelhouse, but I've messed with it before. Maybe 5 years ago?

Anyway, I picked up a leg of lamb, and cubed it up. Marinated in Olive oil, lemon juice, S&P, garlic, oregano, and cumin.



Also made a pesto sauce which was mostly traditional with the smallest pinch of Cayenne (not enough to be spicy).




Grilled



Delicous





It was a lot of fun to cook, so I think I'm going to try some more lamb dishes.

Looks great in the picture. But I would never put pesto on lamb, its not a complementary flavor to the meat.

I like to keep lamb simple due to the large flavor natural to the meat. Olive oil, salt and pepper is usually good enough. But some rosemary often works too.

I think you would disagree if you were at the table, but fair enough.

Lamb Spiedies

Lamb Spiedie sandwiches are a local thing in Binghamton NY. I have eaten them for fifty years they are excellent. We just had the Spiedie Fest this week end.

I was thinking the same thing.. but I've never tried it, so I cant knock it.

Regardless, they look amazing!

Its a strong flavor. But lamb chops are one of my favorite meals.

The lamb ones are getting harder to find, most places sell chicken now and pork comes in second. A local bar still serves them on a plate with the stainless skewer and a slice of Italian bread. Most places serve them in a sub/hoagie roll with extras like cheese, peppers, onions, lettuce, tomato, ranch dressing. I will take mine plain.

You don't get too much gaminess with the leg if you take the time to trim all the fat, silverskin, etc.

I think a lot of us are so used to commercial, mass-produced meat that we've forget what animals actually taste like. I'm certainly guilty.
