Lamb is a rich and flavorful meat. You can eat cubed lamb alone or include it in a variety of nutritious dishes such as stews and soups, or skewer it with a variety of vegetables. Lamb can be a tricky meat to cook, because if overcooked, it becomes tough and dry.

Sauteed

Step 1

Pour olive oil into a large skillet and heat over medium high heat. Use about 1 teaspoon of olive oil for every pound of cubed lamb you're cooking.

Step 2

Add your cubed lamb pieces and sprinkle with salt, pepper and other seasonings to taste.

Step 3

Cover and cook the lamb for three to four minutes.

Step 4

Stir the lamb cubes using a slotted spoon. Cover again and continue cooking.

Step 5

Stir the lamb cubes every two to three minutes until all are golden brown and no longer pink.

Step 6

Remove the lamb cubes from the skillet using a slotted spoon.

Grilled

Step 1

Heat your outdoor grill to medium heat.

Step 2

Soak your wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes to one hour.

Step 3

Thread the skewers with lamb cubes, alternating with chopped vegetables, such as bell peppers, potatoes and squash.

Step 4

Brush the lamb and vegetables with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and other seasonings to taste.

Step 5

Place the skewers on the grill and cook for two to three minutes.

Step 6

Turn the skewers over and continue cooking for two to three more minutes.

Step 7

Turn the skewers twice more, cooking for two to three minutes on each side.

Step 8

Remove the skewers from the grill and carefully push the lamb and vegetables off into a large serving bowl.

Roasted

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Spray your roasting pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 3

Scatter your lamb cubes evenly in the roasting pan.

Step 4

Sprinkle with salt, pepper and an assortment of dried herbs and seasonings as desired.

Step 5

Roast the lamb cubes for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they are browned and no longer pink.

Step 6

Remove the roasting pan from the oven and allow your lamb cubes to cool slightly before using in a recipe.
