Method

  1. Heat grill to high. Season the lamb, then grill for 2 mins on each side until browned, but still very rare. Meanwhile, mix the seasoning, oregano and half of the mint into one of the tubs of yogurt, smother this over the lamb, then return to the grill for another 2-3 mins or until the yogurt is blistered and the meat is cooked to your liking.

  2. Leave the meat to rest on a board for a few mins while you toast the pittas, shred the lettuce and thinly slice the red onion. Stir the rest of the mint into the second tub of yogurt. Thickly slice the meat and stuff into the pitta bread with the salad and minted yogurt. Squeeze over lemon juice before tucking in, if you like.

I made it for lunch and I was positively surprised. It's quick to make and thanks to the salad and the yogurt sauce it's reasonably light as well. The only disadvantage is that it gets cold fast.

I made this today for lunch grilled in the oven. I didn't have the seasoning, I mixed parsley with coriander, cumin, garlic, salt & peper with yogurt and oregano; also used parsley in the dressing for lettus and onion. It was great. We will have it again. Leyla

I thought this was delicious but did make a few tweaks. I marinaded the lamb steaks in the yogurt mixture for a few hours before cooking. I did not have the seasoning mix so had put cumin, coriander,garlic, turmeric and fresh mint and coriander in with the yogurt. Then we barbecued the steaks and ate them as suggested above. Really yummy.

I cannot rate this, as I was really happy to find this recipe until i cooked it I found it to be lacking in taste and went cold very very quickly, will never try it again..........
