Not a bad quick meal and feel free to substitute tomatoes for capsicum, and pretty much any other salad veggies you want. Maybe a few olives instead of the capers and the list goes on.
- 200 g lamb steaks, cut into strips
- 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
- 1 tablespoon garlic, crushed
- 6 drops Tabasco sauce
- 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 100 g lebanese bread (about 30cm or 12-inches round)
- 2 cups mesclun
- 1 tablespoon capers
- 3 tablespoons sour cream
- 1 medium red capsicum, seeded and cut into strips (bell pepper)
- Place lamb strips, teriyaki sauce, garlic, Tabasco sauce, oil and pepper in a small bowl. Mix well and marinate 30 minutes or so.
- Cook lamb on hot BBQ plate turning occasionally until cooked as desired (about 5 minutes will do the trick).
- Place Lebanese bread on a plate and top with mesclun mix and capers.
- Put sour cream over top in three dollops and place capsicum strips to the side, followed by the cooked lamb strips over the middle.
- Roll up starting by folding in at the top and bottom a little followed by tightly rolling at the sides.
- Place under a sandwich press for 5 minutes or so to make the bread crispy. This is optional but tastes a lot better.
- Enjoy with an ice cold beer in the other hand!
YUMMY!!!!!!!! As a regular souvlaki eater I was a bit skeptical but WOW I could eat these as a replacement. Hubby liked the change up. He had his with capers, I did not. I did use a mix of lamb and sirloin as that is what I had available, sliced thin and mixed together on each sandwich. I also added chopped tomatoes as opposed to sliced. This is an easy and quick recipe and I can see making this for a group of people for a lunch or dinner on the hot muggy evenings of summer at a souvlaki bar so to speak. Thanks Peter, will make this again and soon. Made for AUS/NZ Aug Swap.
This was a yummy twist on a souvlaki..loved the teriyaki sauce and the capers! We added a little sliced red onion, but apart from that I had mine exactly as the recipe says, and hubby had his with tomato instead of capsicum. We did grill ours in the sandwich press, and I loved the toasted pita! It made a great Friday night dinner with a couple of drinks! Thanks for sharing! [Made for Aus/Nz Recipe Swap]
