GYRO RECIPE
1 medium onion
2 lbs ground lamb
4 cloves garlic minced
1 Tbsp dried marjoram
1 1/2 ts dried rosemary
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
preheat the oven to 325
put the onion in a food processor and process
turn out onto a tea towel, gather the ends and squeeze until all the juice is removed – return to the food processor
add the lamb, garlic, marjoram, rosemary, oregano, salt and pepper and process until it’s a paste
place the meatloaf onto a jelly roll pan and shape into a rectangle about 1 1/2-2 inches tall – don’t forget to add a meat thermometer
bake at 325 until the meat hits 155-160
take out of the oven and let rest for 10 mins
turn the oven to broil
then slice the meat thin and lay out flat on a baking sheet (or two)
broil 2-3 mins, or until the meat starts to crisp on the edges
Serve on a pita bread with tzatziki sauce, thinly sliced red onions, diced tomato and feta cheese!

Tzatziki sauce
1 1/2 C greek yogurt*
1 medium cucumber
pinch of kosher salt
4 cloves garlic
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp red wine vinegar
5-6 mint leaves (minced – more or less depending on your preference)
peel and de-seed the cucumber then grate – place the grated cucumber in a tea towel, gather the ends and squeeze to remove the liquid
You can either just stir all the ingredients together (in this case be sure to mince the mint leaves well)
OR place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend – you can blend a little or a lot depending on the texture you want in the end.
refrigerate and let the flavors develop together.
serve with pita bread triangles or on top of gyros

*if you don’t have access to greek yogurt you can place plain yogurt in a tea towel, gather then ends and tie to a wooden spoon and hang over a bowl overnight in the fridge – this will thicken the yogurt to the thickness needed
