Feeding Your Family: Shish Kebab and Yummy Yogurt Sauce

Shish Kebab

Kids love to eat grilled meat and veggies right off the skewers, but you can also fold them into warmed flat bread, top with some yogurt sauce and make delicious sandwiches.


  • 1 lb. lamb sirloin, trimmed of fat and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbs. fresh thyme, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • Pita or flat bread


1. Toss the meat with the olive oil, onion, garlic, lemon juice and thyme. Marinate for several hours, or overnight. Bring to room temperature before grilling.

2. While the grill heats, thread the meat onto skewers.

3. Season with salt and pepper, then grill over medium-high heat, turning several times, until done to your liking.

4. Heat flat bread on grill. Serve meat plain, or in bread with yogurt sauce. Serves four.

Yummy Yogurt Sauce

Thick and creamy Greek yogurt is especially perfect for this sauce, but any kind of plain yogurt will do.


  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 3 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 1 handful of either dill, thyme or parsley, chopped finely
  • Salt and pepper

Mix yogurt with lemon juice and herb. Add salt and pepper to taste.
