Made some gyro meat ala Chef John, Food wishes. Ground and pressed lamb and beef with onions and spices together in a glass baking pan with another on top. Pressed in fridge overnight


Next day on the egg at 250 degrees until internal temp 160.


Back in the fridge overnight to firm back up. Sliced and browned in fry pan


Here are the fixings.



On a pita bread with lettuce feta cheese tzatziki sauce and pickled red onions


Were they good? They were OK. Next time I'll just use sliced chicken breasts 😎

That is some nice work there, Boatman. They look good to me. What was it that made you think that they were just OK?

Your fixins look great but I will say that I have never seen lettuce on a gyro before.

I have wanted to make gyro meat for a long time, but I like Alton Brown's recipe and also Kenji's from Serious Eats.

Here is a good write up on the texture of the meat:

This recipe:

Your pics make me want to try this. Thanks!

Frankly the meat was a little to smokey and a bit over cooked. Not a big fan of pita bread also, but the better half won, of course 😃, so that's what we had 😎. I would suggest a try.
