I Love Gyros !
I found this recipe and changed some of the ingredients ( spices ) to what I thought was more traditional for gyro meat. My husband said it was spot on and I hope you will think so too . Also I always
make a small sample patty of meat just to make sure it is seasoned properly.

  1. Put the onion in a food processor until finely chopped
  2. Remove the onion from the processor and place in a towel
  3. Gather the sides of the towel and squeeze out the liquid from the onion
  4. In a mixing bowl place the onions, lamb, beef, and remaining ingredients and mix together well with your hands
  5. Cover the mixing bowl with Saran Wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to let the flavors mingle together
  6. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  7. After the 2 hours take your meat from the mixing bowl and place into a food processor and process to until the mixture feels sticky( very well ground)
  8. Place the meat mixture into a 7x4 loaf pan and pack tightly no air pockets
  9. Place a damp towel into the bottom of a roasting pan and place the loaf pan on top of towel lined pan and place inside the oven
  10. Fill the roasting pan with boiling water half way up to the sides of the loaf pan
  11. Bake until the gyro meat has an internal temperature of 165 degrees and is no longer pink inside and the juices run clear
  12. Half way through the cooking process remove meat mixture from the pan and pour off excess fat return the meat back to the pan and continue cooking
  13. When the meat is done and slightly cooled cut very thin slices of meat and lightly brown on both sides inside a sauté pan
  14. Place meat slices in a nice warm pita wrap topped with tzatziki sauce , lettuce tomato and onion
