Spice Rubbed Lamb Pops

I found a neat collection of fun Outdoor Recipes at Marie Claire. Here is a great recipe for Spice Rubbed Lamb Pops.

Spice-Rubbed Lamb Pops

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless lamb (top round), trimmed of all visible fat and cut into 1/2 x 2 1/2-inch strips
  • 12 skewers, soaked in water for 20 minutes if wood

1. Preheat the grill or a grill pan.

2. In a small bowl, combine the cumin, coriander, cinnamon, pepper, and salt. In a large bowl, sprinkle the spice mixture over the lamb strips and toss to coat evenly.

3. Thread 1 piece of lamb onto each skewer and grill over medium-high heat for 4 to 5 minutes, turning once.
