2 Tbsp fresh sage
2 Tbsp fresh flat leaf parsley
2 Tbsp fresh chives
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
2 Tbsp dry sherry
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp dark brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
8 ounces lean lamb shoulder
2 cups water
4 medium red potatoes
1/2 medium white onion (peeled and halved)
1/2 red bell pepper
6 small shitake mushroom caps

Place the sage, parsley, chives, lemon juice, pure maple syrup, sherry, olive oil, brown sugar and salt in a blender and puree until smooth.

Cut the lamb into eight, one-ounce cubes. Combine the marinade and lamb in a zipper bag. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator at least four hours (overnight is best).

Place the water in a stock pot fitted with a steamer basket over high heat.

Cut the potatoes in half. Place the potatoes and the half onion in a steamer and steam for 15 minutes. Allow to cool.

Quarter the half onion and the pepper.

On a skewer place, alternate: mushroom cap, lamb cube, quartered onion, quartered pepper and potato. Keep the marinade in reserve.

Cook kabobs over a hot grill. Turn about every three minutes and baste with the remaining marinade as the kabobs cook.
