    Marjoram (Origanum majorana, syn. Majorana hortensis Moench, Majorana majorana (L.) H. Karst[2]) is a somewhat cold-sensitive perennial herb or undershrub with sweet pine and citrus flavors. In some Middle-eastern countries, marjoram is synonymous with oregano, and there the names sweet marjoram and knotted marjoram are used to distinguish it from other plants of the genus Origanum.

    Pretty decent

    I did not make the rice. Instead, I served it in pitas, as suggested in the side note. The lamb is made into a meatloaf (no breadcrumbs) and comes out looking kind of like an ugly flat patty. Very unattractive but very tasty. The instructions tell you to cut the meatloaf into slices and then brown them. I did this and it was key. I think it would have been very dull without this extra step. I then chopped it into chunks, stuffed it into warm pita bread, along with the tomato gravy, tahini, cucumbers and tomatoes, and a lemon cumin yogurt sauce. My DH and son LOVED these and we ate the leftovers the next day.

    Pg. 14 Lovely little rice bowl with a sauce reminiscent of butter chicken and lovely lamb which really did remind me of gyros. The technique of processing, chilling, baking, and pan frying the lamb yilded a very tasty little tidbit. Couldn't find marjoram so used dried but it was fine. Might season the meatloaf a bit more aggressively.
