The meat can also be cooked in the oven.

Easter the Greek way

In Greece Easter is the biggest holiday. Lamb is the Easter meal of choice. A whole lamb is roasted on a large spit or souvla. John the Baptist was the first to refer to Jesus as the Lamb of God because His purpose was to take away all our sins. Greeks eat lamb in remembrance of this.

The most delicious traditional Greek marinade is olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt and black pepper which can be injected into the lamb with a marinade injector.
