Mediterranean Lamb with Pita and Tztatziki

Not quite as complicated as it might sound, this dish is quick and easy enough to put together for a weeknight meal. You can also swap out the lamb for an alternative - we often also make this with chicken.

lamb, tzatziki, pita and salad on plate

You'll Need:

150g lamb, thinly sliced

2 cloves garlic, crushed

2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon ground black pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil


¼ cup plain greek yoghurt

¼ cup grated cucumber

1-2 cloves garlic, crushed

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon ground black pepper

2 large wholemeal pita

Fresh salad vegetables of your choice (eg. lettuce,

cucumber, tomato, red onion, capsicum)


Mix 2 cloves garlic, oregano, cumin, salt and pepper together in a bowl.

Add the lamb and mix to coat well. Set aside for 10-15 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Once hot add lamb and fry for about 5 minutes, until just cooked.

Place pita on an oven tray and brush lightly with olive oil, then warm in oven for a few minutes at a low heat.

To make tzatziki, squeeze grated cucumber to remove excess liquid, then place in a bowl together with yoghurt, salt, pepper and garlic. Mix well to combine.

To serve, cut pita into wedges and serve together with lamb, tzatziki and a fresh salad.
