Urumqi Lamb or Japanese Eggplant Skewers

You won't find a lot of cumin in Chinese cuisine, at least not in the regional varieties available to us here. But cumin is a staple of Northwest China, where it's a part of the traditional cuisine for the Muslim migrant population. It's classically paired with lamb, creating a savory and addictive flavor combination. Hence the inspiration for our Urumqi Lamb and Goat Rub. The flavors also work excellently with smoky eggplant.

Ingredients:
2 tbsp Urumqi Lamb and Goat Rub
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup tahini or Chinese sesame paste
1 tsp fish sauce (optional)
1 lb lamb, cut into 1-inch cubes and skewered OR 1 large Japanese eggplant, cubed and skewered.

Directions:
Mix Urumqi, soy sauce, water, tahini and fish sauce in small bowl. Brush on lamb or eggplant and marinate for 2 hours. Grill or roast in 425 degree oven, turning one or two times. Cook to your taste, 10-20 minutes.

We love empanadas in my household, and what’s not to love? The buttery crunch of pastry, your favorite fillings, they're not too big, but small enough that you can eat two (or more...), and still feel good about it!
