    This was excellent!! We used lamb and added green, red & yellow peppers. My husband and daughter had theirs on top of rice. Since I'm cutting calories low, I had mine on top of salad. It was a delicious idea!!!! - 5/25/09

    this recipe was great! I increased the wine and stock, and a bit more garlic, and used top sirloin instead of lamb. Will make it again for dinner! - 1/13/09

  • Tried this recipe over the weekend. amazing recipe. A must try one.

    My wife gifted me this Kabobeque bbq gril and i tried this recipe on it. Came out great.

    Sounds great-all of my favorite things, except the lamb. How much would it change the calories etc., to use chicken or lean beef instead I wonder? - 1/8/09

    I'd add a variety of vegetables -green, red or yellow peppers, yellow squash or zucchini to increase the fiber content and get those daily servings. Pork or chicken might be good if lamb is not a meat you enjoy; just adjust the calorie count. - 1/8/09

    I think I'll make this soon, subbing lean pork for the lamb. One note...the recipe should state that the items are marinated separately; at the least, the meat should be segregated from the veggies. If you cut the meat into smaller chunks, and the veggies bigger, then there'd be less discrepancy. - 1/8/09

    Sounds Yummie, but my hubby and I are not lamb eaters. Perhaps I will try it with beef or a lean pork loin for a sub. Thanks for sharing! I will let you know how it turns out!! - 1/8/09

  • Perhaps the lamb could be partially pre-cooked before threading on the skewers so that meal and veggies will come out perfectly cooked, and some not undercooked or overcooked. - 7/12/08

    It is a great recipe - one of my favorite special meals. We always barbecued lamb shish kebob for special times and this is the recipe we used. I prefer adding green peppers instead of mushrooms though and don't marinate them. - 2/5/08

    I can't stand the taste of lamb, but maybe it would be just as good with chicken breasts or a lean pork tenderloin--not sure what that does to the nutional info - 2/2/08
