DIRECTIONS
  1. Lamb Kebobs
  2. 1) Mise En Place-- grab all of your spices and mix into one bowl and get your meat grinder ready for your rib meat. Place your skewer into a bowl of water to prevent burning.
  3. 2) Grab your lamb ribs from the bone and slice along the bone. Take all meat from the bone, so try and go slow to remove it all. Once all of the meat is sliced from bone, cut into 1 in cubes to help grind better.
  4. 3) Turn on your meat grinder, and start placing the one inch cubes into the grinder. Once your meat is all gone, regrind your meat for a second time for a more consistent smooth texture.
  5. 4) Once the meat has been grinded twice, pour in all spices and mixed until well combined.
  6. 5) Form the mixture into 60g portions.
  7. 6) Flatten each portion into a oval 'pancake' and place the stick into the middle. Wrap the meat around the stick, trying to create an even layer around the skewer.
  8. 7) Brush each kebob lightly with oil and season with additional salt.
  9. 8) Place into a conventional oven for 20 - 25 minuets until the internally temperature is 145 F
  10. 9)Take out of oven and let rest for 5 minuets. Enjoy!
  11. Flat Bread
  12. 1) In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together until well blended
  13. 2) Make a well (hole) in the middle of the flour mixture, and add olive oil, sugar, and most of the water (saving about a tablespoon for later use)
  14. 3) Use a rubber spatula and stir the wet ingredients into the flour mixture. If the dough seems dry, add the rest of the water. When dough comes together, transfer to a floured work surface and knead for 5 to 8 minuets until smooth. Cover with a metal bowl and leave for 10 minuets.
  15. 4) Once rested, divide the dough into six equal pieces. Dust each piece in flour and roll into a disk about 1/8 to 1/4 thick.
  16. 5) Add one to two tablespoons of oil to a skillet and place over medium heat. When the oil is heated, add flatbread and cook until golden brown on one side, flip and cook until golden brown on other side. It should equate to 1 to 2 minuets on each side.
  17. 6) Transfer bread on a plate and cover to keep warm. Keep adding the rest of your dough disks, and if the skillet gets dry, add more oil.
