The first shot of a plated meal that Jordan Cabatic ever shared with us (almost a year ago now) was this venison + pita and tzatziki combo and we are so excited to finally be able to share her recipe, mahalo Jordan! Here, in a record-hot summer, Jordan grills up venison kebabs and serves alongside a cool, refreshing cucumber tzatziki sauce. Rich, creamy, and full of fresh herbs, tzatziki is delicious on pita and, of course, grilled venison. Add this one to your list of must-try ground recipes. Serves: 3-4 Prep/Cooking time: 15/10 minutes. Enjoy!

  • Pita Bread
  • 1 Tomato (sliced)

STEP 6: Lay each kebab on a sheet pan and drizzle generously with olive oil on all sides.

STEP 7: When the grill is ready, place kebabs on grill and cook for about 6-7 min, turning continuously.

STEP 8: Remove from grill and lightly season with garlic salt to taste.

STEP 9: Place pita bread on grill for a few seconds to warm.

STEP 10: Build pita by placing kebab and desired toppings on pita bread, finishing off with a generous amount of Tzatziki sauce.
