Recipe By:ChefStubb's
"This is a twist on the classic Greek sandwich."

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried marjoram
  • 2 teaspoons ground dried rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 pounds venison, cut into 1/4 thick strips
  • 1 (12 ounce) package pita breads, warmed

Directions

  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. 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 8 minutes. Pile the meat onto warmed pitas to serve.
