Recipe by R. B. Miller
"Full flavor gyro meat with a finished texture suitable for slicing and serving on pita with feta cheese, lettuce, sliced black olives, sliced onions and green peppers and served with tzatziki sauce. The time involved is well worth the effort."

Excellent recipe. My husband loves gyro's and has eaten them in many different countries. He says the taste rivals those. I made no changes other than I used already ground lamb. Still ran it through the meat grinder. Taste and texture were great. Wouldn't change a thing. Thank you R.B.
This recipe was not to my liking.
The only changes I made were to add a little fresh mint, and I decreased the rosemary and marjoram. The meat turned out a little dry but that was nothing that a drizzle of tzatziki sauce couldn't fix. Served it sliced in pitas with tomato, onion and shredded lettuce. Very good. Thanks, R B Miller!
I am about 3 months in to teaching myself how to ccok... I was worried about this recipe - but it turned out wonderful! i used my hands to mix the lamb & beef (i bought ground lamb since i dont' have a meat grinder) wholefoods will actually grind your lamb for you at the meat counter. I would recommend this recipe to anyone!
An awesome gyro meat. Time consuming, but the steps were easier to follow than other recipes I'd found and it turned out great.
This turned out great. I used a bit less rosemary as I'm not crazy about it. It took a bit of time to make but was completely worth it. My family and friends love it. Thanks.
I did add a 1/2 tsp of oregano and thyme and didn't refrigerate overnight and it turned out just fine!!!
This is an awesome recipe. When I turned out the loaf for the second baking, I kept it inverted and it made the meat very juicy, not dry. I mean, it's not what you get from a rotisserie, but the flavor is the same. I made tzatziki on the side and added chopped tomato,red onion,lettuce and stuffed into pita. YUM!
