  • Gyro meat?

    At a local Greek restaurant, I occasionally order a salad topped with roasted veggies and gyro meat. I thought it might be fun to make gyro meat at home. However, I started looking up recipes, and a few of them used breadcrumbs as a binder.

    Do you know if this is the norm for restaurant gyro meat? Does it typically contain bread??

    Yes and no. Depends on how authentic they are and the chef's preference. It IS kinda like a Greek meatloaf, though. I wouldn't worry too much abt your gyro if it's not a daily thing. If you're really worried, you can ask the chef. if it's Kronos meat, as so many restaurants use, you're fine.

      We make our own gyro meat by doing 1/2 ground beef and 1/2 ground lamb in the food processor with just spices until it is paste like. Bake it in a loaf shape, cool and then slice thinly. Brush the slices with a little olive oil and broil for a couple minutes.

        Thanks!! Is it necessary to put the meat in the food processor? Or could I just mix it really well with my hands?

          mix it well by hand and you're fine. If you have rotisserie set up for whatever reason, use that. Errrr *Scuffle scuffle dig*
          Here is Alton Brown's recipe.
