Lamb Kabobs Italian Style


Meat on a Stick Lamb Kabobs Italian Style is a great dish to make over the weekend. Of course if you prefer, beef, chicken or pork will work just as well.

For best results marinade the meat over night. If you don’t have time, four to six hours will be fine. Using a nice bold red wine as part of the marinade gives the meat a great rustic flavor when grilled.

This Lamb Kabobs Italian Style recipe is a guaranteed favorite. This dish is usually served over regular rice or a rice pilaf but to add an even more Italian twist to it just serve it on some creamy risotto. Enjoy!
