Shish Kabob

For the most part it is hard to fault this recipe – it’s got meat, veggies, and bacon – but seriously, canned boiled potatoes? Really?


2 pounds lamb, cut in 1 ½ inch cubes
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
2 gloves garlic, crushed
¼ teaspoon thyme
¼ teaspoon marjoram
2 tablespoons oil
½ cup dry red wine
2 drops Tabasco sauce
8 cherry tomatoes
4 strips bacon, cut in half
8 fresh mushrooms
8 pearl onions
8 small canned boiled potatoes
1 large green pepper, cut in eights


Marinate lamb cubes overnight in sauce made of salt, pepper, garlic, thyme, marjoram, oil, wine and Tabasco. To prepare: thread meat on skewers, alternative with tomatoes, mushrooms wrapped in bacon strips, onions, potatoes and green pepper. Broil in an electric broiler , oven at 500° or on a barbecue, placing skewers on a rack 3 inches from flame. Turn and baste frequently until done – about 20 minutes.
