Gyros Seasoning

Love gyros? You might think that you can only get these at a restaurant or a gyro stand, but making them at home is easier than you might think.

This recipe feeds 6-8 people, but you can scale up or down, as you wish. The recipe also uses meat, but this could work with coarsely chopped sautéed mushrooms in the place of meat.

454 g beef
454 g lamb
30-35 g spice blend

Puree in batches in a food processor and then give a thorough mix. Refrigerate and let rest 2 hours to overnight.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spoon the meat mixture into an 8” by 8” brownie pan, or something with approximately the same volume and sides at least 2” high, and smooth the top. Cook until the meat reaches 165 degrees, 60-75 minutes. Let cool, then refrigerate til cold. When ready to eat, remove the meat from the pan and slice thinly. Place slices on a sheet pan and drizzle with any juices that remain in the baking dish. Cook again at 375 degrees until the edges begin to curl.
