Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 1/2-3/4 lb lamb chops
  • 1 tablespoon Greek seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 small pitas or 2 large ones
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • additional optional add ons: sliced cucumbers, finely sliced red onions, chopped olives

Instructions

  • Pat the lamb chops dry with a paper towel, and sprinkle each side of the lamb chops with Greek seasoning, patting it onto the meat with your hands so that it sticks.
  • In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil for 1 minute, then add in the lamb chops and allow them to cook for 4 minutes, flip, and cook for another 4 minutes. Remove from heat and allow the lamb chops to sit in the pan for 5 minutes to rest (internal temp of the lamb should be 160 degrees for medium, if you like it cooked to well done, let cook for 5 minutes on each side and reach an internal meat temp of 170). After the lamb has rested, slice into thin slices.
  • While the meat is cooking, preheat the oven to 350 and warm the pitas for a few minutes (3 minutes) to get them warm.
  • Set out the remaining ingredients (spinach, feta, yogurt)
  • To assemble lay pita on a plate, top with a spoonful of yogurt, spinach leaves, lamb chop slices, and a pinch or two of feta cheese. Fold up sides to form a pita and enjoy!
