“I like the flavor his marinade, infused with allspice and cinnamon, and find it excellent on lamb, chicken, beef or goat. Tuck the grilled chunks of meat and produce into warm pitas or serve on a bed of rice. It is extremely tasty and grilling adds a delicious flavor.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine in a large sealable plastic bag garlic, lemon juice, 1/4 cup olive oil, allspice, cinnamon and pepper. Seal bag and mix well.
  2. Cut meat into 1" cubes and place cubed meat in bag with marinade, reseal and place in refrigerator. Marinate 3- 24 hours.
  3. Cut peppers into 1" wide strips.
  4. Slice onions 1" thick and quarter.
  5. Place peppers, onions, mushrooms in a glass bowl or glass cake pan and brush with remaining 1/4 cup olive oil. Cover & refrigerate.
  6. Using 10 skewers assemble alternating pepper, meat, onion, mushrooms.
  7. Grill on medium high grill (I use a gas grill with cover) 10 - 12 minutes, rotate and continue cooking 10 - 12 minutes. (If cooking goat or lamb meat needs to be cooked but still red, beef needs to be pink.).
  8. 14 - 16 pita halves or 3 - 5 cups cooked rice.
  9. (marinating time is not figured into the prep and cooking time, I prefer to prepare everything the night before then allow to set at room temperature 10 -15 minutes while assembling kebabs).
