Get Your Taste Buds Ready

This is a delicious, simple lamb souvlaki recipe with homemade tzatziki that my mum sent me. She cooked the lamb in a camp oven, so I thought it was a great idea to write up the recipe and show you how it was done.



  • 1 tub (500g) Greek style yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic (more if you like it garlicy)
  • 1/2 cup grated cucumber, (without the seeds)
  • pinch salt and pepper
  • squeeze of lemon juice (optional)

Lamb and dressing:

  • 1 kilogram lamb
  • oregano
  • olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • salt
  • pepper


  • 4 sliced tomatoes
  • 1 whole iceberg lettuce, chopped
  • 1 onion (optional), chopped
  • 10 pita bread

Lamb Cook Time

Cook time: 1 hour

  1. Tzatziki Instructions: Squeeze liquid out of the grated cucumber. Add yogurt, olive oil, cucumber, garlic and mix all ingredients together. Add parsley or mint (optional)
  2. Light up the coals and get your camp oven ready.
  3. Rub lamb with oil, oregano, salt, pepper, and garlic. You can put as much of these ingredients as you want. If you wish to add other spices, go right ahead. Falvour that meat however you like.
  4. You can also leave it to marinate for a few hours, which is optional. But if you're hungry then don't wait a moment longer.

      You just made me realise that I have never had a beef souvlaki. Wow, I think I might need to try that. Thanks for reading Wesman Todd Shaw :)

      I'm pretty new to lamb. I'm in Texas, so we have cows everywhere you look. So beef is pretty inexpensive, but lamb is very expensive.

      I've only bought lamb a few times. I'd certainly love to buy a large roast of it like you've got in the photo. I'd sure love to get more experience with Greek foods as well. :)
