Lamb Gyros

Since lamb really reminds me of the Greeks and truthfully the only thing I have ever eaten lamb in and truly enjoyed is a gyro I thought it was only fitting to post that recipe! Hope the rest of you enjoy!

Lamb Gyros
Total preparation and cooking time: 30 minutes

  • Cucumber Yogurt Sauce (see recipe below)
  • 1 pound lean ground lamb
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • Whole wheat pita pockets, warmed

In a large bowl, combine lamb, garlic, oregano leaves, onion powder salt and pepper; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape lamb into 1/2 inch patties. Place patties on rack in broiler pan so surface of meat is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 8 to 10 minutes or until no longer pink, turning once. Slice each patty into thin slices. Place equal amounts of lamb, tomato and onion in each pita half; serve with Cucumber Yogurt Sauce.

Cucumber Yogurt Sauce

If you happen to be in the Salt Lake City area you can get these at Crown burger, Apollo burger, or Astro burger...MM MM good :)

Grilled Rosemary Lamb Chops

The theme this week is going to be Lamb recipes. I have a whole bunch of lamb in my freezer and have no idea what to do with it. This is the only recipe I have found that sounds somewhat good. Hopefully I can get some good recipes so I can use it up!

4 lamb chops, 2 oz each
3 cloves crushed garlic
4 tsp olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 TBSP fresh rosemary leaves
kosher salt and ground pepper to taste

Combine olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and rosemary. Season the lamb with salt and pepper and cover with garlic mixture. Marinate at least 1 hour, overnight if possible. Grill over medium high heat to desired liking.
