Ingredients

Lamb 2 1/2 Pound (Cut From Leg Or Shoulder)
Chopped parsley 1 Tablespoon
Onion 1 , chopped
Thyme 1 Teaspoon
Oregano 1 Teaspoon
Dry white wine 2 Teaspoon
Fresh mushrooms 6 Small
Bay leaves 4
Butter/Margarine 4 Tablespoon
Raw rice 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Olive oil/Salad oil 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)

Directions

1.

In a medium casserole arrange a layer of chopped parsley to cover the bottom, cover the parsley with a thin layer of chopped onion, and sprinkle with chopped thyme and oregano.

2.

Cut the lamb into 1- or 1/2-inch cubes and arrange on top of the herbs in the casserole.

Pour over dry white wine just to cover the lamb, cover, and refrigerate anywhere from 1 to 3 days, stirring each day.

3.

Drain the lamb dry, saving the marinade, and arrange the cubes on skewers, alternating lamb with mushrooms.

Put a small piece of bay leaf next to each lamb piece.

4.

Strain the marinade and add the solid part to a skillet with the butter.

Simmer until the onions are golden.

5.

Stir in the dry rice and let it brown lightly 4-5 minutes, stirring almost constantly.

6.

Add enough water to the liquid part of the marinade to make 3 cups, and add this to the rice.

Let it boil up, turn heat to low, cover, and simmer gently 20-25 minutes, until rice it tender.

7.

While rice is cooking, put the shish kebab under the broiler, brush with oil, and broil about 4 inches from the heat 15 minutes, turning to brown on all sides.
