Lahem Meshwi (meat and onion skewers)

Lahem Meshwi (meat and onion skewers) - Kohkoz – Real Lebanese Cuisine


1kg of eye fillet/scotchfillet/boneless lamb (cut into 3/4cm cubes)
½ tsp ground black pepper
½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp allspice
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
6 pickling white onions (peeled) (or one large onion cut into cubes)
¼ cup olive oil


1 pack Kohkoz Pitas
1 pottle of Kohkoz Traditional Hummus


Preheat your BBQ to medium high

Place all the ingredients into a mixing bowl

Assemble skewers. Each skewer should have approx. 5-7 pieces of meat and a couple of onion cubes.

Lay the skewers on the BBQ, turning them periodically so that they grill evenly.

This should take a total of 8 to 10 minutes; 4 to 5 minutes per side. Make sure not to over grill your meat, or it will lose its natural juices.

Once cooked, remove the skewers off the BBQ and serve hot with warm pitas and hummus

This can also be made with chicken and served with Kohkoz Toum instead of hummus
