Grilled Yogurt Lamb Kabobs are rich and tender. The yogurt in the recipe tenderizes the lamb. What makes them especially winning is that they are low in fat, high on flavor, and easy to make.

- 2 pounds boneless lamb roast, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 2 sweet onions, peeled and each cut into 6 wedges
- 3 large red bell peppers, cored, seeded, and cut into 18 pieces
- 18 slices lemon, 1/20inch thick
- 9 canned artichoke hearts, cut in half
- 1 cup plain yogurt (regular or low-fat yogurt)
- 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon coriander, ground
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin, ground
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
Prepare Yogurt Marinade - add lamb cubes and marinate, covered, at least overnight or up to 3 days in the refrigerator. Remove lamb from refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature before proceeding. Remove lamb cubes from marinade and discard marinade.
Preheat barbecue grilland brush the grill with oil to keep the lamb from sticking.
Starting with the first skewer, thread on a piece of onion, a piece of red bell pepper, a slice of lemon, a cube of lamb, and a piece of artichoke. Repeat this sequence twice so that three of everything is on the skewer. Squeeze everything up tightly so that everything fits on the skewer. Repeat with the remaining skewers.
Place lamb skewers onto hot grill and cook approximately 10 minutes, turning occasionally, or until lamb is browned and pink in the middle and the vegetables are cooked. Temperature of the lamb on the meat thermometer should register 120 degrees F. to 130 degrees F. or desired temperature (see below). Remember the meat continues to cook (meat temperature will rise 5 to 10 degrees after it is removed from the oven).
In a large bowl, combine yogurt, garlic, coriander, cumin, and pepper.
