In a bowl, combine lime juice, vinegar, olive oil, oregano, red pepper flakes and garlic. Whisk to blend. Let sit for 30 minutes. Reserve 1/4 cup marinade for basting.
In a bowl, toss lamb cubes and marinade to coat well. Place lamb in plastic bag and seal. Marinate in refrigerator for 10 to 12 hours.
