Lamb & Chicken Kabobs


Who has never heard of shish kebab?

In Turkish, shish kebab, literally means “gobbets of meat roasted on a spit or skewers.”

Sure, Gus’ Mexican Cantina has been voted “Best Mexican Restaurant in Milwaukee” by Weekend Cue,

but Gus’ Heritage and multi-generational ties to the old word, makes the addition of Lamb & Chicken Kabobs to the menu an obvious choice.

History and Origin of Lamb & Chicken Shish Kabobs

It is said that shish kebab was born over the open field fires of the soldiers of the Turkic tribes that first invaded Anatolia, who used their swords to grill meat, as they pushed west from their homelands in Central Asia.

In the Arab world, the same preparation is called shish kabab or lahm mishwy (grilled meat). The true shish kebabs are pieces of marinated lamb affixed to flat or four-sided bladed metal skewers that are grilled over a fire suspended by a skewer holder, without the meat ever touching the grilling grate.

Given the obvious simplicity of spit-roasting meat over a fire, we suspect its genesis is earlier. There is iconographical evidence of Byzantine Greeks cooking shish kebabs. But surely the descriptions of skewering strips of meat for broiling in Homer’s Odyssey must count for an early shish kebab.

In Gus’ Kitchen

Gus’ chefs now prepare the most famous preparation of the kabob with grilled lamb. But easily a favorite among the fitness crowd is the boneless chicken variety.
