We need to have stripes of meat for this, so slice then stripe the meat up.
Place the stripes of meat into a big enough bowl.
Sprinkle one half of the herbs and spices we will use onto the meat.
Put a lid or a big enough plate onto the bowl and give it a good shake. Alternatively just mix everything together with either by hand or a sturdy kitchen tool.
Sprinkle the second batch of spice and herbs onto the meat then mix / shake everything until the every piece of meat is evenly covered. Adding a half cup of cooking oil will help making this a smoother experience.
It's recommended to place the meat in the fridge for at least a couple of hours to marinate but in case of emergency we can start roasting it immediately.
Sear the stripes of meat with little oil in our favorite pan. We can also make them on a grill.
Gyros meat - Advanced method
Ground the meat. We can use one type of meat or a mixture of any meat we like but the more fat the meat has, the juicier and tastier it will be.
Ground or finely chop all the spices, herbs and vegetables that will be used. A food processor can be a great help with this task. Add some vegetable oil in the food processor if it can't cope with the small amount of stuff in it.
Mix all the ingredients together.
Fill the mixture into a baking tray that will provide at least 1" / 2.5 cm tall meat slices at the end. A bread loaf tin is excellent for this, but if we feel artistic, we can even sculpt a loaf of meat on a baking sheet just like we do with a meatloaf.
Place the filled tray into a preheated 350°F / 180°C oven until the inner temperature reaches the necessary level (pork 145°F / 63°C) for about 60 minutes.
Take the meat out, let it cool down a bit then slice it up thinly.
Gyros meat can be served on it's own with a bit of salad but it truly shines through some tzatziki sauce and pita bread.
Make tzatziki sauce by mixing Geek yogurt with grated cucumber, garlic, olive oil, dill and some salt. Check out how to make Tzatziki sauce in the Low carb condiment section.
Fill the meat into a store bought or even better homemade pita bread. Nothing compares to some freshly made pita bread!
