In an ideal world, everyone would eat Lamb. It would be the first meat of choice that people grabbed for. We tend to to be repeat buyers stuck in the beef and chicken section of the market…. If only we explored our options. I’m a HUGE CRAZY LAMB LOVER and am always surprised by the people around me who don’t eat lamb so much or have never tasted it at all. These words send me into action, I immediately jump on my soap box and tell them how much they are missing out on, and to be ready to become fanatical. I can’t help it, I utterly enjoy turning people on to deliciousness.
Take these Chipotle Grape Lamb Skewers for example….. My fiance’s mom is an older Mexican woman who has never cooked with Lamb. Why? She’s scared of it? Not experimental? Not really exposed to lamb dishes? Who knows. It could be any of these reasons. I recently made these Lamb skewers and offer her some. What do you think happened? She went NUTS COOCOO bananas over them. Asking a trillion questions about the preparation and what I used in the marinade. I guarantee you she went out and bought some Lamb that night to make her own skewers. My job was done here.
Ingredients for Chipotle Grape Lamb Skewers:
3 – pounds of Cedar Springs Butterflied Leg of Lamb (Chopped into 1 1/2 inch cubes)
2 – lemons (juiced)
1 – onion sliced
1 1/2 – tablespoons of chipotle powder
1 1/2 – cups pinot grigio
2 – cups Melissa’s Produce Muscato Green Grapes (smashed)
4 – garlic cloves (peeled and smashed)
2 – teaspoons of salt
15 to 20 bar-b-que skewers
Start by cutting your lamb into 1 1/2 inch cubes. Place in a bowl.
In a another bowl add grapes and smash put to pop grapes. Place to the side.
Now add all ingredients to Lamb chunks, and mix well. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to marinate in the fridge overnight.
1 hour before you are ready to grill…. soak skewers in water for at least 20 minutes.
Then remove lamb from fridge and skewer 4 chunks of meat per skewer. Once all skewers are prepared….Toss them on the grill.
Grill on each side for 4 to 5 minutes….. Heaven!
