Sticky Korean Lamb Skewers

Lamb top round comes from the leg; it's a flavorful, boneless cut that's still tender enough for quick cooking.

Cooking Light DECEMBER 2013

  • Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: 1 skewer)

Ingredients

  • 2 green onions
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons dark sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound lamb top round, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Preparation

1. Thinly slice green onions, reserving 2 tablespoons sliced dark green parts. Combine remaining green onions and next 5 ingredients (through garlic) in a large bowl. Add lamb and bell pepper to bowl; toss well to coat. Thread lamb and bell pepper pieces alternately onto each of 4 (10-inch) skewers.

2. Heat a large grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add skewers to pan; grill 8 minutes or until lamb is desired degree of doneness, turning skewers after 4 minutes. Remove skewers to a platter, and sprinkle evenly with reserved 2 tablespoons green onions and salt.
