Everyone loved it! Used balsamic vinegar instead of brandy.
For our taste, the marinade just wasn't flavorful enough. I added some dill to the cucumber sauce, as another reviewer suggested. and that helped, but the marinade did not win us over.
This was really good it craved my desire for gyros. Although my local grocery store didn't have any lamb shoulder so I used a lb of sirlion, the marinate made the meat full of flavor. I wasn't to crazy about the sauce I don't know if it was the plain yogurt or not enough seasoning it just seemed like it was missing something. All in all really good, next time I will find the lamb and make it with that.
Good flavor. I did add about 1/4 tsp. of dill to the yogurt/cucumber sauce. It adds a nice flavor to the sauce.
This is a WONDERFUL marinade for the lamb! It was incredibly flavorful. I used leg of lamb because it is less fatty and just cubed it. I actually prefer a little sauce so did not drain it out completely. I didn't have any marjoram and just subbed in a little more oregano and added some coriander and paprika. So delicious! Thanks...we are huge fans!!
This was absolutely amazing. I didn't use the brandy, and I used flatbreads instead of pita pockets. I think I would also prefer thin strips of lamb instead of chunks, so I will try to do that next time. But overall, it was so, SO delicious.
Excellent and not too difficult! I got the wrong cut of lamb so it was a little bit difficult to deal with but it still turned out excellent. Will use again with better lamb cuts. Thanks!
Great recipe. I used goat meat instead of lamb, which was a bit tough but very yummy. Also I used a slightly different tzatziki recipe, and spinach leaves instead of shredded lettuce. The marinade for the meat was just divine!
