    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons ground cumin
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
    • 2 teaspoons dried marjoram
    • 2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
    • 1 tablespoon dried oregano

    1. Whisk together the olive oil, cumin, garlic, marjoram, rosemary, oregano, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add the venison strips and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with cling film and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours.
    2. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the venison strips, 225g at a time, until the venison has browned on the outside and is no longer pink on the inside, about 8 minutes. Pile the meat onto warmed pittas to serve.
