2 lbs. boneless leg of lamb
Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper
juice of one lemon
several sprigs of fresh Oregano or 1 TBS dried
4 cloves of garlic, crushed
1/4 cup olive oil
1 can Oregon Dark Sweet Cherries, well drained
8oz baby bella mushrooms, washed and trimmed
Wooden skewers soaked in water
Slice the lamb into strips about 2 inches wide and 1/4 inch thick. Season all over with the salt and pepper. Put the olive oil, lemon, garlic and oregano in a large ziploc bag. Swish to combine. Add the lamb and shake to make sure all pieces are well coated. Marinate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
Soak the skewers in water for at least 30 minutes. Skewer the lamb strips, cherries and mushrooms beginning and ending with a mushroom cap. Heat the grill. Place skewers over direct heat and watch until they take on a nice char. Turn over and continue until they are nicely charred on all sides. This should take about 12-15 minutes for medium rare.
Paired with some nice grilled asparagus, a Greek Salad and bread you will have a delicious Memorial Day Grilled Feast!Tags: barbecue, Cherries, grilling, lamb, skewers
