    Serves 6.


    +2 tablespoons olive oil
    +1 1/2 tablespoons ground cumin
    +1 tablespoon minced garlic
    +2 teaspoons dried marjoram
    +2 teaspoons ground dried rosemary
    +1 tablespoon dried oregano
    +1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
    +salt and pepper to taste
    +3 pounds venison, cut into 1/4 thick strips
    +1 (12 ounce) package pita breads, warmed


    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 plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours.

    Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the venison strips, a half pound 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 pitas to serve.
