Recipe Ingredients:

3 pounds American Lamb leg, or boneless leg roast, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
1 small red onion, cut into quarters
1/3 cup peach jam
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped rosemary
2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic

4 whole peaches, skin removed and cut in half, pitted or 8 canned or jarred peach halves
16 wooden skewers, soaked in water for 20 minutes

Cooking Directions:

  1. Place the lamb cubes and onion in a large pan.
  2. In a bowl, combine jam, balsamic vinegar, rosemary, garlic, red wine vinegar, oil, salt and pepper; pour over the lamb and onions. Toss to coat. Cover, refrigerate and marinate 4 to 8 hours.
  3. Remove meat from marinade and discard marinade.
  4. On each skewer, thread 4 lamb cubes alternating with onion pieces.
  5. Grill the kabobs about 4 minutes per side or to desired degree of doneness. When lamb is done, remove from grill, cover and let stand.
  6. Grill peaches cut-side down until browned and juicy. Cut each grilled peach in half again and place on the end of each skewer. Serve immediately.
