Gina Farina's Note:
I wanted gyro meat that tasted like the kind in the Greek restaurants. I wound up combining ingredients from 3 different recipes and was amazed at the awesome result! It smelled so good even before it hit the grill.The "easy" part is that you can just throw this on the grill, broil, bake or pan fry it. It's also easy because I buy the Tzatziki sauce, Quinoa tabouli, spanikopita appetizers and hummus at Costco and I have a ready-made meal for my family or a larger crowd. I also serve with split Pita breads and we make our own gyros with sliced garden tomato and sweet onion.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Soak skewers in water for 30 minutes while you prepare the meat mixture.
- 2In a large bowl, combine all the other ingredients. Mix well with hands (use rubber gloves).
- 3Dry off the skewers so they aren't dripping wet, then form an oblong "sausage" around the skewer, securing firmly.
- 4Cover and refrigerate skewered meat for 30 minutes.
- 5If possible, use a veggie or fish grill (that has a smaller grate); brush or spray grill grate with oil.
- 6Set grill to medium-off-medium and grill each side for 5 minutes, turning only once, or until the outside of the meat is charred and the inside is medium.
