Souvalaki Lamb

The butchers here make lots of prepared meats, like satay kebabs and thai chicken. This one caught my eye as a nice marinaded lamb that should be good for a quick weekday meal - it was advertised as good bbq'd or fried. While the marinade was nice, I think they used the wrong cut of lamb for such quick treatment. Ours was heavily marbled, almost gristly, and although the meat in between the fat was tender, it wasn't the best eating. The sharp Greek salad I made to go with helped cut through to some extent, but this cut would have been a lot nicer simmered in a tomato-based sauce for a couple of hours. Next time!
