BBQ Lamb Open Souvlaki’s

Makes two open souvlakis

Preparation time 5 minutes

Cook time 6-8 minutes


  • 1⁄2 a tub of Chris’ Homestyle Tzatziki Dip
  • 1 lamb back strap
  • 1 cup of iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 1 tomato, cut into wedges
  • 2 tsp of dried oregano
  • 1⁄2 a tsp of onion salt
  • 1 tsp of olive oil
  • Fresh mint, black pepper and lemon wedges, to serve



  • Rub the lamb with oregano, onion salt and olive oil. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.
  • On a very hot BBQ (I used the grill plate), cook the lamb for approx. 2-3 minutes on one side, before turning and cooking the other side (the aim is to keep it a bit pink in the middle). 
  • Meanwhile, lightly heat the pita breads on the BBQ (or if you’re using the kitchen, you could microwave them for 20 seconds).
  • Once the lamb has cooked, set aside for 2-3 minutes to rest, before slicing.
  • To assemble, lay the pita breads flat and top with lettuce, tomato and sliced lamb.
  • Drizzle with Chris’ Dips Traditional Tzatziki (mix with a couple of teaspoons of water if required to thin it out), and serve with lemon wedges, black pepper and fresh mint sprigs.
