Wow - something totally new, but yet similar to a gyro. We loved this recipe. I made the meat portion of this recipe using 3/4 a pound of ground beef - and added 1/2 t. oregano & 1/2 t. Italian seasoning. I also opted to use the cayenne pepper. I mix the meat by hand for about 5 minutes to really have the spices mixed in and to have the meat form without falling apart. Since I used a lot less meat, I formed into a rectangle and baked at 300° for 45 minutes in a toaster oven. Once the meat cooled I refrigerated it all day. I then proceeded with the recipe in the evening. I purchased homemade pitas from our favorite Greek restaurant to serve this on. I made 'Maritime Donair Sauce' from AR for the topping. My family loved the taste of this meat and this meal. It was so simple to make and I like that you need to make it ahead of time so that the meat will slice in thin pieces. We topped with fresh tomatoes, fresh onion slices and grilled onions. DS also topped his with some feta cheese and thin slices of lettuce. 'Cranberry Coleslaw' from AR was our side dish tonight. Thanks, SABMAN for sharing your recipe. I cannot wait to make this again for my entire family. I know they are all going to love it!
