Still have leftover lamb, the obvious option is to make a lamb gyro sandwich. It’s not anything ground breaking but it is delicious and resourceful. Besides, didn’t momma ever tell to never through out good food?
approx. 4 cups of hand-torn cooked lamb meat
salt and pepper to taste
dried Greek oregano
4 homemade pita breads, lightly warmed
sliced or diced tomatoes
sliced red onions
French fries (optional)
foil or food wrap paper
- Bring your lamb meat to room temperature before reheating. Ensure all your toppings and wrapping are organized. To cook your meat, add a little olive oil in a pan and gently toss over medium heat for 3-4 minutes to heat through. Alternately, you may place in an office safe bowl, cover and place in a pre-heated 350F oven for 8-9 minutes (some of you may even wish to reheat in the microwave, place in a boil covered and zap for 2 minutes). Sprinkle with oregano, keep warm.
- Warm your pita bread in the oven or a non stick pan on your stovetop. Lay out your food wrapping on your counter and place the warmed pita bread on top, with about a third of the pita bread laying outside one corner of the wrap by a third.
- Pile your lamb meat along each pita bread, smear Tzatziki and top with tomatoes, onions (and fries if you wish).
- Bring together the two sides of the pita to enclose your sandwich then bring up the sides of paper/foil and wrap tightly around your pita. Fold the bottom flap tightly underneath the sandwich and serve with a cold Fix beer.
