Home Made Lamb Kabobs

Weather is too hot today. I made Xinjiang style lamb kabobs. The best thing in a hot summer night is having lamb kabobs and cold beers! Happy summer!

I brought a lamb leg from Safeway, and cut the lamb leg into small square pieces. After it, put the meat in a bowl, add 1/2cup white wine, pepper, salt, cumin spice, white pepper powder, Five spice powder (You still need these spices when you bake the lamb). Then cover the bowl with plastic wraps, marinate the meat for 15mins.  

☆ Loosely thread 6 to 7 pieces of lamb on skewers

☆ Place the lamb skewers on foil and bake in 320F it for 10mins, then turn the skewers, and bake another 10mins until the lamb become medium rare. 
☆ Turn skewers 2 or 3 times, meanwhile brush with olive oil, and add cumin spice and salt. It all depends on how strong flavor you like. 
☆ Bake another 15mins and get the well-done lamb kabobs! 

Enjoy the hot day with lamb kabobs and cold beers. Cheers!!!!
