When I made the sauce for these, I decided I wanted to add the onions and tomato directly to the yogurt instead of leaving them on the side to add to the Gyro later. It gave the sauce really good flavor, and I am using the leftovers in another recipe that I will be posting later.
- 2 cups yogurt
- 3 tsp. Greek seasoning ( I used Penzey's)
- 1 medium tomato, chopped
- 1/2 cucumber, chopped
- 1 medium red onion, chopped small
- 1 pound ground lamb
- 1 tbs. olive oil
- 1 tbs. lemon juice
- a bit of shredded lettuce
- 4 - 6 whole pita breads
Combine yogurt with 2 tsp. of Greek seasoning, tomato, cucumber and red onion. Set in refrigerator. In a small bowl combine 1 tsp. Greek seasoning with the olive oil and lemon juice. Add this to the lamb meat and pat out lamb into thin strips. Fry in very shallow oil on both sides until done, drain on paper towel. Warm up pita breads in the oven and slice each in half. To serve, put some lamb into each pita half and top with some of the yogurt sauce and lettuce.
