    Chef #1520721's Note:

    We really liked this recipe, its great to throw the marinade together in the morning and its a matter of minutes to cook and assemble when you get home. I think the venison is a great (and cheap, if you know a hunter) substitute for lamb, especially in recipes like this where the meat is lightly cooked. Cook too much, though, and you will get some tough meat.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      1. Whisk together the olive oil, cumin, garlic, marjoram, rosemary, oregano, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add the venison strips, and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours.
    2. 2
      2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the venison strips, a half pound at a time, until the venison has browned on the outside and is no longer pink on the inside, about 5-8 minutes. Pile the meat onto warmed pitas , and top with tomatoes, cucumbers and tzatziki to serve.

      I made this with venison cube steak sliced into strips. Using the cube steak almost gave it a more gyro like consistency! It was delicious, although the larger pieces of dried rosemary I used were a bit annoying, so I would be sure to break/crush them up smaller. I would definitely make this again.
