"ATW80DS" - Gyros & Greek Salad

We had a quick stop in Greece. (Actually we attended a local Greek festival as a Field Trip.) While we were there we had Gyros & Greek Salad for Dinner.

4 - 6 lamb chops
1⁄4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp lemon juice1 cup water
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1⁄2 tsp kosher salt
1⁄4 tsp pepper
4 pita breads
1 cup shredded Lettuce
1 medium tomato (diced)
1 medium red onion (diced)

In a slow cooker or large baking dish...Mix Lamb, oil, lemon juice, garlic, spices, water, salt and pepper; stirring to coat. Cover and cook for 2 to 4 hours until meat is tender.

Meanwhile, make the Tzatziki Sauce (recipe found below): Stir all the ingredients together, cover and refrigerate.

Just before serving, shred and debone Lamb, then return the lamb to juices in slow-cooker to keep warm. Warm pitas as package directs; top with sliced meat. Serve with lettuce, tomato, onion and Tzatziki sauce.

Tzatziki Sauce:
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup diced seedless cucumber
  • 1 Tbsp snipped fresh dill
  • 1⁄4 tsp Kosher salt
If anyone would like to join us in our Challenge "Around the World in 80 Days", next we will be at the Turkey.
