Why I Love This Recipe

I had some lamb shoulder which is hard to use in any other way then hacked to bits, plus the BF and I love gyros so this recipe was perfect. It is edited from a cookbook.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 lb lamb
1 t. dried oregano
1 t. thyme leaves
4 pita breads (or tortilla wraps put in the skillet till they brown a little)
4 T. thick plain yogurt preferrably greek
1 lemon quartered
small onion chopped
Lettuce chopped
2 garlic cloves
2 t. olive oil
1/2 t. dried oregano
1 T. lemon juice
sea salt and pepper


Slice the lamb finely but roughly basically hack it up. For the marinade chop garlic and add olive oil, oregano, lemon juice, sea salt and pepper in a bowl. Add the lamb and turn to coat. Marinade until ready to cook.

Heat a non-stick frying pan and sear the lamb over high heat, tossing it until crisp on the edges but still a little pink inside. Add the oregano and thyme and toss well. Take some of the au jus from the pan about 2 T. and add to the yogurt with 1 T. parsley.

Heat the pita in oven or frying pan for a few minutes no more than 3. Chop the onion and lettuce. Place on each pita a dollop of yogurt, onion, lettuce and lamb. Serve with the lemon wedge to squeeze.
