Yummy Gyros


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground lamb
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons fresh oregano or 1/2 teaspoon dried
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary or 1/4 teaspoon dried
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Pita bread, cut in half to form pockets
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato, sliced
  • Red onion, thinly sliced
  • Tzatziki
  • Fresh mint leaves (optional)


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Transfer the onion mixture to a large bowl and let it cool.

    Add the lamb, lemon juice, oregano, rosemary, cumin, salt, and pepper to the onion mixture and mix well. Form the meat into 8 thin patties, each about 2 1/2 inches in diameter.

    Heat the remaining oil in the sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the lamb patties and cook for about 5 minutes or until the juices run clear, flipping the patties halfway through.

    Fill each pita pocket with a meat patty, lettuce, tomato, onion, tzatziki, and mint leaves, if desired. Makes 8 gyros.
