Lamb And Beef Kabobs With Cilantro Potatoes. Fabulous New Song From Drunk Mule.

Lamb And Beef Kabos With Cilantro Potatoes



That is the question.

In the Oxford Dictionary, the word is “Kebab” [from the Urdu f. Arab. “kabab”].

The Online Dictionary says that a Kabob (variant Kebab) is small pieces of meat or seafood seasoned or marinated and broiled, often with peppers, onions, or other vegetables, on a skewer.

The answer I like best to what the difference between Kabob and Kebab is:

The spelling.

Now that we got that out of the way, here is a terrific recipe for lemon-parsley marinated meat and veg on a stick. The crispy, garlicky cilantro potatoes make a great side.

Lamb And Beef Kabobs
Lamb And Beef Kabobs


1/4 cup minced fresh parsley

6 small onions, cut into wedges
2 medium sweet red peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
16 large fresh mushrooms
6 pita breads (6 inches), cut into wedges


1. In a small bowl, combine first five ingredients.

2. Place the lamb and beef in a large resealable plastic bag; add half of the marinade.

3. Place vegetables in another large resealable plastic bag; add the remaining marinade.

4. Seal bags and turn to coat; refrigerate 1 hour.

5. On eight metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread lamb, beef, onions, red peppers and mushrooms. Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat 5-6 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness and vegetables are tender. Serve with pita bread.

When it comes to band support for my little kitchen, it doesn’t get stronger than that of Drunk Mule.

Likewise, I love their music and the exuberant zeal that is put into the song lyrics as well as all of their Twitter tweets.

Click on the Bandcamp link below and give Drunk Mule’s enormous back catalog a listen. Try not to smile. No way.

Here is a brand new tune from the band. It makes me feel like I am riding in a convertible with the sun streaming onto my face. And I’m smiling.

The spoken word bits are brilliant.

Check out Drunk Mule on Bandcamp, where you can buy their music.
