DIRECTIONS

  • If you bought unground lamb, it is better if you grind it before you continue and not go straight to the food processor.
  • Place the onion and garlic in the food processor and process until tiny, it will be spun on the side walls of the containter.
  • Add the meat, spices and any optional spices you prefer.
  • Process until very well blended.
  • Place in the fridge for a couple hours (or up to 24 hours). This developes the flavors.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Use a roasting pan or foil lined baking sheet. Form a 5 inch wide 1.5 inch tall and as long as it goes loaf on the pan.
  • Bake until cooked through. Internal temp will be 160°F It will take 30-45 minutes.
  • Alternatively you can sous vide the meat at 165F for at least 2 hours. The nice thing about this choice is that it will hold for as long as you need it to at that temperature.
  • In the mean time you have made your Tzatziki sauce and Pita bread.
  • When ready to serve slice the loaf as thin as possible. Place it under the broiler for just a few minutes. Enough time to heat it through and brown the edges.
  • Place the meat in a pita.
  • Add Tzatziki sauce.
  • Optionally you can add cucumbers, tomatoes, calamata olives, feta, onions and/or greek peppers.
  • Time does not include refrigeration time.
  • Enjoy!.
