Instructions

  2. To marinate lamb combine lamb and all lamb marinade ingredients in either a large bowl or zip lock bag. Seal and place in refrigerator for 2 hours.

    Mix to combine. Add cucumber and dillweed and stir well. Drizzle with olive oil. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  7. Prepare your grill or heat a grill pan to medium heat per manufacturer’s instructions.

Notes

Greek Souvlaki is traditionally made with chicken, lamb, or pork. In these Triple Combination Skewers, we have prepared all three meats and combined them onto one skewer and they are simply fabulous. The Tzatziki sauce brings all the flavors together. These are wonderful served with a nice Greek salad and an ice-cold beer.


Tips: If you are not a fan of lamb, tender beef cubes such as beef tenderloin or ribeye can be substituted. The best flavor will be achieved by marinating wooden skewers and each of the meats for 2 hours.  If using zip lock bags, place the sealed bags into a casserole dish in the refrigerator just in case of leakage.
