2

Place all of the seasoning ingredients, oil and vinegar over the meat. Mix well to coat. Add sliced onions over the meat and mix well with your hands.

3

​Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 8 hours to allow the meat to absorb all the wonderful flavors and so that it tenderizes beautifully.

4

​take the marinated meat out of the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature before grilling. (NEVER place cold meat on a hot grill).

5

​Heat your grill. If using a grill pan, heat over medium-low heat.

6

​Prepare your vegetable skewers.

7

​Clean the mushrooms by wiping with a damp towel and remove the stems. The stems can be frozen in an a freezer bag for later use in soups or stuffing.

8

​Place the mushrooms and onion chunks in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt, pepper and oregano. Toss to coat.

9

Do the same with the tomatoes.

10

Thread the tomatoes on skewers.

11

Thread the mushrooms and onions on skewers as well.

12

​Thread the marinated lamb on skewers.

13

Place the veggie skewers and the lamb skewers on the hot grill and cook for about 15 minutes, rotating the skewers every 3 minutes.

14

Brush the veggie skewers with any oil that is left in the bowl they were seasoned in. This will help them char.

15

​Warm the pita bread and place onto a plate. Place the grilled lamb over the pita and serve with the grilled vegetables and tzatziki sauce.
