Lamb Gyros?

Hello, Does anyone have the recipe for making lamb gyros greek style way ?

when we lived in germany 15 yrs ago , i ate that alot from one of those little food places they have over there,
all i remember was you would get on a plate, lamb strips piled high, with pitta bread, salad, & fries,with sauerkraut (which i managed to get a jar of)

i would love to be able to make it just like it was all those years ago...ive got such a strong craving to eat it right now..lol
would also bring back lovely memories

Sauerkraut on gyros? I've never heard of that. Sorry but ick!!!

I make a leg of lamb ... stab it all over and stuff garlic cloves in all the holes.
Rub meat with a mixture of olive oil, onions, garlic, salt, pepper and oregano.
Roast in oven. Keep brushing with the mixture while cooking.

I use the same kind of mixture on the pita bread that I brown lightly right before putting the meat on. Add onions and tomatoes and tzaki and you've got a great dinner!

p.s. If you roast some potatoes in the same pan and baste with the lamb drippings.. your tummy will be very happy!

sounds good pdswife, but not quite what im looking for,
the sauerkraut is on the side of the plate not on top of the lamb,
the lamb is cut into strips, all i know is that the place where we used to have it alot was a greek place

i just dont know any of the ingredients they used to cook the lamb with

I should have said that you cook the lamb and then slice it and put it onto/ in the pita.

Good luck in your search. If you can't find what you're looking for give my way a shot. It really is good.

smiles, T

I lived in Germany all my life. When we bought gyros, they didn't put sauerkraut on it, they put some marinated raw cabbage on it. very good.

No, but I can tell you that beef gyros taste better.

My son was talking about the gyros in Germany today. He said that the ones he really liked were Turkish. He lived in Swabish Gmund for 3+ years so they may have been just in that area.There was a very large Turkish population there. I like a good gyros whether Greek or Turkish.
