Souvlakia of Lamb

1 lb Lamb loin; boneless
2 tb Lemon juice
1 ts Oregano
Salt and pepper; to taste
8 sm Onions; peeled
1 sm Red bell pepper
1 sm Green bell pepper; or 1 sm Yellow bell pepper; Optional


Cut the lamb into 1 inch cubes. Place the cubes in a glass dish or plate and sprinkle with lemon juice, oregano, and salt and pepper to taste. Blanch the onions in boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes or until almost tender; then drain. When cool enough to handle, cut off the root ends of the onions and squeeze off the skins. Seed the peppers and cut them into 11/2 inch pieces.


Thread the lamb alternating with vegetables onto flat-bladed metal skewers or wooden skewers that have been soaked in water.


Preheat the grill. Place the skewers on the grilling rack and cook about 5 inches from the heat, turning every 3 to 4 minutes, for 12 minutes or until meat is brown outside but still pink inside. These can also be broiled in an oven, but cooking time may vary depending on the oven and the distance of the food from the broiler.
