Recipe for Greek Lamb Gyros

Written by in , , Comments Off on Recipe for Greek Lamb Gyros

Lamb is one of the most traditional meats to use in gyro meat. If you can find it, real lamb gyro meat is a treat!

Lamb Gyro Recipe Ingredients:

  • 4 Greek pita bread rounds
  • 1 recipe Greek tzatziki
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • Crumbled feta cheese
  • Slices of lamb gyro meat (eyeball it, but about 4-8 slices per sandwich depending on the size of the pita)
  • Dried Greek Oregano

How to Prepare Greek Style Lamb Gyros:

Prepare the pita bread and tzatziki according to the recipe instructions. It’s possible to also use store bought pita bread and tzatziki. When it comes to finding good pita bread, be sure to buy the traditional bread used in Greek gyros!

Place a piece of aluminum foil down on a flat surface. Place a round of pita bread over the foil. Spread a generous amount tzatziki across the middle of the pita bread. Top with chopped onion and tomato, feta cheese, and then add the lamb gyro meat. Drop another spoonful of tzatziki over the top, if desired. Sprinkle some oregano over all the ingredients.

Roll the gyro sandwich and wrap it in aluminum foil so it can hold the shape. Repeat until you’ve used up all the bread.
