Makes 12 servings



Sea salt and pepper 6 pita breads - used different bread 1 onion, sliced thin

Recipe Ingredients for Gyro

1 lb. ground lamb
1/2 medium onion, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
1 egg

Recipe Directions for Gyro

  1. Combine the lamb, onion, garlic, parsley, egg and a sprinkle of sea salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Use your hands to combine all ingredients well.

  2. Divide mixture into 6 equal portions and form into strips, approximately 6" long, or as thin as possible. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

  3. While lamb mixture is chilling, you can toast the pita in the skillet you will cook the meat in. Brush with olive oil or spray with cooking spray and cook over medium-high heat until nicely toasted. Set aside.

  4. Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the meat strips, or as many as will fit without crowding, and cook until a brown crust forms and meat has firmed. Flip and repeat on second side. Repeat with remainder of meat.

  5. Serve with tzatziki sauce and sliced onions.
