  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped pistachios
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced lemongrass
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Combine all ingredients in a bowl. For appetizer portions, roll mixture into balls about the size of ping pong balls. Flatten out each ball slightly and wrap it around a small bamboo fork or a short metal or wooden skewer. (Soak wooden skewers in water for a 15 minutes before wrapping with lamb mixture.)

Pre-heat a gas or charcoal grill and grill the skewers, turning frequently, until the meat is done through.
