Gyros

It’s a loaf, so you can slice it similar to the ones at the restaurants.

1 pound lean ground beef
1 pound lean ground lamb
1 small onion, grated
3-4 cloves garlic, pressed
2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon marjoram
1 teaspoon thyme
1 Tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
3/4 teaspoon salt
Greek-style Pita bread
Sliced tomatoes
Thinly sliced onion rings for garnish

Tzatziki Yogurt Sauce
1 cup plain, low-fat yogurt
1/4 cup grated cucumber
1/4 cup grated onion
1 teaspoon olive oil
Garlic powder

Make the sauce first by combining the first five ingredients and set aside to develop the flavors.
Preheat broiler or prepare barbecue.
Combine the rest of the ingredients, except pita and onion rings, thoroughly in large bowl.
Shape into a flattened loaf and broil, turning until a thermometer inserted in the middle reads 155-Degrees F.
Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing as thinly as possible.
Assemble each sandwich by placing a few slices of meat in a pita, add a few onion rings, some chopped tomato and drizzle on some of the sauce.
Serve with plenty of napkins.
