A wonderful change of pace from the standard grill items. Invest in reusable metal skewers and you won't need to keep wooden ones on hand.

Instructions

  1. In a large glass bowl, combine broth, mustard, lemon and garlic; add lamb and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling.
  2. Preheat a large stovetop grill pan over medium heat.*
  3. To assemble kabobs, thread 3 pieces of lamb, 2 pieces of pepper and 2 pieces of mushroom onto each of six 12-inch metal skewers. Sprinkle kabobs with salt and pepper; discard marinade.
  4. In a small bowl, combine ingredients for mustard mixture; brush over kabobs.
  5. Grill kabobs for 5 minutes; flip and brush with mustard mixture. Grill until meat is browned and vegetables are tender, about 3 to 5 minutes more. Yields 1 kabob per serving.
Notes
*You can also cook these on an outdoor grill over medium-high heat; cooking time may vary slightly from above.Swap red onion chunks for the red peppers if you prefer.
