Remembered that SNL skit, "Hub's Gyros" today and immediately craved these. This is WONDERFUL and DIVINE meat! Like others, we left out the marjoram, as our local Kroger didn't have it and used an extra clove of garlic and 1 tsp kosher salt. **The most important part of this recipe is to food process/blend up the meat.** It gives it a texture that is tender and to die for and makes a perfect loaf. Do NOT skip this vital step. We used the blender, small amounts of meat at a time and it came out outstanding. We also did let it sit in the fridge for about 2 hrs (was only going to do one hour, but forgot about it) and the sauce (see other recipe for Tzatziki Sauce) chilled in the fridge while the meat cooked. This meal couldn't have been timed out any better. It was super easy (we are in our early 20s) and I will definitely, definitely make this again. Once it began cooking, the smell that filled the house was exactly what I was craving. I got so high off this meal and we only ate one a piece. Very, very filling. We ate the meat with the tzatziki sauce, fresh tomato, sauteed onions on Kangaroo pita flatbread. I am so happy we have leftovers. I will be eating this again tomorrow. **make sure to process the meat to get the texture!!**
