I'm pretty sure that's tomato. It looks like tomato and Steve listed tomato as one of the toppings.

Oh what a dinner we had Steve!

I followed your ingredients exactly for the ground lamb, with the addition of about two tablespoons of finely chopped fresh mint from my yard. I followed Aunt Bea here...... " I mixed it up yesterday, formed it into a chub using cling film and refrigerated it overnight. This morning I removed the cling film and wrapped it in aluminum foil. I baked it at 375 for 45 minutes and let it rest in the foil until it was warm." I heated up the Pita breads and served them stuffed just like your picture, with sliced onion and chopped tomatoes.

The meat was perfectly seasoned and the sauce was right on the mark too Steve.

This is a keeper for sure!

Bill, my advice is don't be tempted to skimp on the measurements of spices. At first it seemed like a lot to me, but this meat is packed with authentic flavor because of that.

I'm actually going to follow it 100%, which is a rarity for me.

Homemade Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce [SIZE="4"][B]Gyros[/B][/SIZE] Serves 4 [B]Ingredients:[/B] [LIST] [*]1 lb ground lamb [*]1 1/2 tsp kosher salt [*]1/2 tsp ground black pepper [*]1 tbsp dried oregano [*]1 tbsp dried marjoram [*]1/4 tsp cayenne pepper [*]1/2 tsp onion powder [*]2 cloves of garlic, finely minced [/LIST] Toppings: chopped tomatoes, thinly sliced onions, cucumber tzatziki sauce (recipe follows) [B]Preparation:[/B] Preheat oven to 375F Mix all ingredients well and form into an elongated egg-shaped loaf. Place on a nonstick roasting rack with foil underneath to catch any drippings. Bake 45-60 minutes, or until the internal temp is 160F. Cover with foil and let stand for 5 minutes. Slice thin and serve on warm pita folds with chopped tomato, onion, and tzatziki sauce. For an authentic restaurant style touch, you can wrap them in foil for easier eating. [SIZE="4"][B]Tzatziki Sauce[/B][/SIZE] I usually make tzatziki a day ahead of time, as it helps the flavors develop. [B]Ingredients:[/B] [LIST] [*]1 16-oz container of plain Greek yogurt [*]1 English cucumber, peeled and shredded with a box grater [*]1 clove garlic, finely minced [*]1 tbsp olive oil [*]Juice from half a lemon [*]1 tsp dried dill [*]1/4 tsp salt, or to taste [/LIST] [B]Preparation:[/B] Lightly salt the shredded cucumber and let sit for 20-30 minutes. This will help pull excess water out of it. Wrap the cucumber in a paper towel and squeeze out as much water as possible. Mix everything together and let sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight. [IMG]http://i892.photobucket.com/albums/ac125/SteveKroll/Gyros.jpg[/IMG] 3 stars 1 reviews
