For the Kabobs:
1 & 1/2 lbs boneless lamb (shoulder or sirloin chops, or leg of lamb)
2 cans pineapple cubes

For the Marinade:
1 cup plain yogurt
3 garlic cloves crushed or minced
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 tsp pure salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp red pepper flakes

8 – 24 hours in advance:

  • Cut the lamb into bite sized cubes and place in an 8 x 8 glass pyrex (or similar sized bowl).
  • Whisk all marinade ingredients together and pour over the lamb, tossing until well combined.
  • Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight.

When you’re ready to cook:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Thread the meat and pineapple onto skewers and lay them on a parchment covered cookie sheet.
  • Bake 30 – 40 minutes (until done to your liking) turning the kabobs once halfway through.

Serves 4.

SIDE NOTES:

~  You can serve these kabobs with a dollop of plain yogurt on the side for dipping if you’d like (we liked).

~  Of course, you can add any number of vegetables to the kabobs as well — cherry tomatoes, zucchini, onions, bell pepper, mushrooms, (etc) which would eliminate the need for a side dish.

~  I did have a 4th kabob, but omitted it for the photo because it was all meat, as I ran out of pineapple and it didn’t look as pretty (I thought the one can I had on hand would be enough).

We were all enamored by these kabobs — extremely delish and very easy to make.  Hope you enjoy them too!
