Lamb Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce

Lamb with gyro seasoning is one of my all-time favorite flavor profiles. However, what takes gyro meat from good to great is the addition of tzatziki sauce and our Super Gyro Seasoning! Hayley and I got to spend a little vacation time in Greece a few years ago, and we experienced Greek cuisine like never before. One way to make this dish easy for weeknight meals is to skip the Tortillas and serve it directly over a big salad.

Process

  1. Prepare the Tzatziki and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the ingredients for the Gyro Spice Blend in a small mixing bowl and stir to combine. Place the ground lamb in a large mixing bowl and top with the spice blend, onion, and garlic. Using your hands, knead all of the ingredients together to combine.
  3. Shape the meat into a loaf and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 25–30 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 155°F.
  4. While the meat is baking, prepare the Tortillas.
  5. When the internal temperature of the meat reaches 155°F, remove it from the oven and turn the oven to broil on high. Slice the meat into thin strips, and arrange them on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil for 3 minutes, flip the meat, and broil for 3 minutes on the other side, draining the fat from the baking sheet as necessary.
  6. To serve, top each Tortilla with the gyro meat, a few slices of cucumber, a few slices of tomato, a sprinkle of red onion, a few pieces of baby lettuce, and a dollop of Tzatziki. Garnish with fresh dill, if desired.

Notes

To make this recipe dairy-free, make the tzatziki using coconut milk yogurt. And to make it nightshade-free, simply omit the cherry tomatoes from the toppings.
