  • 2 tablespoons cumin powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh pepper
  • Oil - for grill
  • pounds lamb stew meat - lamb shoulder


  • First you'll make a spice rub of cumin powder, red pepper flakes, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Most of these spices are already part of your pantry staples.
  • Prepare a grill for medium-high, indirect heat (for a charcoal grill, follow the two zone method, for a gas grill, leave one or two burners off). Oil grates like normal.
  • Thread lamb kebabs onto skewers, leaving a small gap between each piece of meat. Season generously with spice blend, pressing it onto the meat with your hands to make it stick.
  • Grill lamb over direct heat, turning every minute or so, until browned and beginning to char in spots, about 4 minutes. Move to cooler side of grill (indirect and continue to grill until lamb is cooked to desired doneness, about 5-6 minutes longer for medium.
