MMM… Gyros

April 08, 2010

In case you were wondering where all the leftover Easter lamb went: Gyros! Well, my take on them anyway.

I started with a good amount of minced garlic and chopped red onions sauteed in olive oil, then added the sliced lamb and cubed roma tomatoes (on the vine, from Costco), added some flake salt and ground peppercorns over the pan. The bread is nothing special, just from Trader Joe’s, but the green stuff is mâche or “lamb’s lettuce” (also from TJ’s) and is quite tasty, like a light, nutty spinach. Topping off the ensemble is some Greek yogurt.

They turned out quite well.
