Lamb Gyros

This is my favorite meal! It's time consuming and has a lot of ingredients so we have only made it a few times, but its worth it every time. Several items can be substituted.

Dan and Ashley's Gyros

Lamb Marinade
1lb of lamb chops
1/4 c olive oil
5-10 garlic cloves crushed
1 lemon juiced
1tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
dash of hot paprika
couple drops of sriracha
dash of greek seasoning

Cut lamb meat off bones into small pieces. Mix together marinade and brush onto lamb. Feel free to use your own personal taste preference for the spices.


Cucumber Sauce 
1 cup of plain yogurt
1 seeded cucumber finely chopped
2 tbsp chopped onion
1 clove of garlic crushed
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 lemon juiced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tbsp dill

Mix together in medium bowl. You will have plenty and may even want to cut the recipe.  It can be used as a dip as well.


Cook the lamb in a pan on the stove. 

Meanwhile saute red peppers and onions with a small amount of olive oil.

Heat Pita bread on stove or in microwave.

Layer cucumber sauce, lamb meat, lettuce, onion and peppers with feta cheese on the pita.
