Homemade Gyros


Delicious Greek Gyros topped with a fresh Tzatziki yogurt sauce.

Gyro Loaf:

  1. 1 pound ground beef and 1 pound ground lamb
  2. 1 onion
  3. 5 garlic cloves
  4. 2.5 teaspoons oregano
  5. 2 teaspoons salt
  6. 1 teaspoon black pepper
  7. 1 teaspoon marjoram
  8. 2 tablespoons crushed dry mint

Gyro Loaf:
Cut the onion and garlic into smaller pieces. Place everything but the meat in a food processor or blender for 1 minute. Mix in everything with the meat and place in a clear plastic bag. Find an oval shaped form and press the meat mixture (still in the bag) firmly into it compressing it. Place it in the fridge, preferably with some canned item on the top to press it down more. Leave it overnight or for at least 4 hours.

When ready to bake, remove the meat carefully onto a baking tray. You may have to cut the plastic bag off of it. Pre-heat the oven to 350 F and bake for 50-60 minutes. Let the loaf cool for a couple minutes then cut thin slices lengthwise. Place the gyro meat in with tomato slices, thin slices of onion and however much of the tzatziki sauce is preferred.
