Yummy! I want to try marinating deer venison in this super easy flavorful sauce. Can't believe that "FANCY" cucumber sauce is that easy!! Quinoa is foreign to me and I wanted something really easy tonight, so we went with making it like a Gyro on pita bread. My picky kids even liked the meat and cuke sauce. AWESOME.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, toss together lamb, half of the oregano, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, garlic, 2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add half of the lamb and cook, tossing constantly, until cooked through and liquid is absorbed, 5 to 7 minutes; transfer to a plate. Repeat process with remaining oil and lamb.
  3. In a bowl, combine yogurt, cucumber, remaining 1 tablespoon lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Arrange quinoa on a platter or individual serving plates. Spoon lamb over quinoa, top with peppers, cucumber-yogurt sauce and remaining oregano and serve.
