Here's how to make it:
2 lb lamb gyro meat
(our butcher sells it sliced and ready to cook)
1/2 medium onion (minced)
2 Tbs minced garlic
2 tsp oregeno
2 Tbs lime juice
1 tsp cumin
1 Tbs italian seasonings
salt and pepper to taste
- 16 oz Plain Greek Yogurt
(I found the Fage Brand Greek Yogurt works the best. It tends to be runny when using the Safeway Lucerne brand)
- 1/2 Cucumber (peeled and cut into a few pieces)
- 1/2 Medium Onion (cut into a few pieces)
- 1 1/2 Tbs lemon juice
- 2 Tbs olive oil
- 2 tsp Dill weed
- 2 Tbs minced garlic
Add lamb and seasonings to crockpot. Cook on high for 4 (approximately) hours. If your lamb is pre-cooked, cook for 1-1/12 hours (or until onion and garlic are tender).
Add the peeled cucumber, onion chunks, and garlic to a food processor and chop until smooth. Add lemon juice, olive oil, and dill weed and process for a few more seconds. Keep the chopped ingredients in the processor bowl, and chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Just before serving the meal, mix the chilled ingredients with the Greek Yogurt.
Serve with rice, pitas, or Mexican Flat Bread (my favorite).
