3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 pounds boneless leg of lamb, cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 small leek (white and light green parts), thinly sliced
4 ounces green beans, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (1 cup)
3 cups fresh corn kernels (from 6 ears)
Wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes


Prep: 20 Minutes
Other: 10 Minutes

Heat grill to medium.

In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon, cumin, thyme, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper. Place the lamb in a large bowl, sprinkle with the spices, and toss. Divide the lamb among the skewers. Grill to the desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the leek and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the green beans and 3 tablespoons water. Increase heat to medium-high and cook for 3 minutes. Add the corn and the remaining salt and pepper and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Serve the succotash alongside the lamb.
