Yes. I hear the gyro meat you buy in the market is soggy and not good. I'm not certain how it's made, what it's made of or where you could go to get meat for gyros. Doesn't looking its anything I've seen at the meat counter or the deli. Yes, I'm truly ignorant about it. I don't know.

The pressed stuff available commercially (there is a vid of how they manufacture it on NYTimes.com), I have no idea about replicating but gyro with real lamb or pork is doable. I don't eat much red meat so usually opt for shawarma version where chicken or turkey is used. I found that turkey thigh meat works really well and sometimes swap half for chicken breast. Basically you take the meat off the bones in large flat pieces/slices. Then marinate with Middle Eastern or greek spices, garlic, herbs and olive oil (I keep kosher so haven't tried it but yogurt in the marinade is also common) for a few hours or overnight. Then stack the pieces of your chosen meat on the spit until the outside is brown and crackly, then slice vertically.

My rotiserrie is horizontal and it still works but if yours is vertical its even better as it lets the fat and flavor seep down to all the meat.

I couldn't find good videos but these give the idea

Thanks mentioning the Shawarma, i've often wanted to try gyros but could not get past the idea of lamb. Just googled shawarma in my city and found a restaurant with very positive reviews. Will visit with a friend this weekend!

Lilly - I don't know if this is something you might like but a middle eastern friend of mine made this for me once and I make it now.

I use chicken thighs with bone (no need to pay extra) and prep them by taking off the skin and any extra fatty bits. Throw the thighs in a bowl, preferably one that seals. Mix together a carton of regular (not vanilla) yogurt, black pepper and either lemon juice (my preference) or white vinegar. I usually make about 12 -16 thighs with 24 oz of yogurt and 4 oz. of the acid.

Pour the mixture of the chicken, toss it around to coat, then seal and refrigerate overnight. I don't grill so when I cook it, I bake it.

You take a large baking pan and spray with cooking oil. Remove the thighs from the bag and shake off the excess and place in the pan. I then shake on a mediterranean herb mixture. Usually some ground garlic, a bit of salt, pepper, cumin and oregano.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45mins to one hour until done. The meat is juicy and delicious. You can eat right off the bone, or pull the meat off the bone to eat on pita with veggies and some sauce of your choice. The meat alone is awesome.

I love it because it has some tanginess and some spice from the herbs. Usually I pull off the meat from the leftovers and freeze for a future use.

The excess yogurt marinade needs to be thrown away.

Let me know if you like it. My husband did not like chicken on the bone and if he did, he would only eat breast meat. This recipe is how and when he started eating thigh meat on the bone. It truly is tangy and juicy and delicious. I hope you love it as much as we do.

It was delicious! I think, however, that I needed to use more vinegar for a bit more tang...I used about 1/3 cup vinegar to about 16 oz yogurt for 8 large thighs. Next time I will up it to 1/2 cup like DABunny uses. I thought for a small batch it would be less, but apparently not! Or maybe it's just to taste

I am so glad that you enjoyed it. I love the tang and the acid really helps to make the meat tender. Definitely add more next time if you like the tanginess.

yep.. will do. I can see that the lemon juice would be awesome...but since lemons are kind of pricey these days, I was hoping for the cheap fix for "every day" cooking!

I already seasoned up my chicken thighs and put them in the freezer. Next batch I buy I will try this recipe. It sounds delish!

I don't use fresh squeezed, I use the stuff in the plastic lemon. But I use white vinegar many times just because I always have that on hand. Don't forget the black pepper during the marinading, it really helps too.

Sure thing lovies!

I substituted 2 boxes of frozen, thawed and drained spinach for the fresh and I also used some fiesta blend shredded cheese I had in the fridge. This is really awesome stuff!

Ingredients
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup minced onions
salt
fresh ground black pepper
3 lbs fresh spinach, washed, stemmed and finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
2 cups heavy cream
12 ounces grated sharp cheddar cheese


Directions
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Lightly grease a 6 cup casserole.
In a large saute pan, melt the remaining butter.
Add the onions and season with salt and pepper.
Saute for about 2 minutes, or until the onions are soft.
Add the spinach.
Season with salt and pepper.
Saute for 3 to 4 minutes.
Add the garlic and cream.
Mix well.
Season the mixture with salt and pepper.
Bring the liquid to a boil and reduce to a simmer.
Simmer the mixture for 6 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat and turn into the prepared pan.
Add 1/2 of cheese to casserole and stir.
Sprinkle the top with the remainder of the grated cheese and place in the oven.
Bake for about 4 to 6 minutes or until the cheese is slightly brown and bubbly. **I put this under the broiler after 6 minutes to add more color to the cheese..that's how I like my cheese!**

The Hairy Bikers actually make Gyro meat in one episode. The Hairy Bikers is a BBC cooking show about a couple of bikers who are hairy and like to cook.

I substituted 2 boxes of frozen, thawed and drained spinach for the fresh and I also used some fiesta blend shredded cheese I had in the fridge. This is really awesome stuff!

Ingredients
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup minced onions
salt
fresh ground black pepper
3 lbs fresh spinach, washed, stemmed and finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
2 cups heavy cream
12 ounces grated sharp cheddar cheese


Directions
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Lightly grease a 6 cup casserole.
In a large saute pan, melt the remaining butter.
Add the onions and season with salt and pepper.
Saute for about 2 minutes, or until the onions are soft.
Add the spinach.
Season with salt and pepper.
Saute for 3 to 4 minutes.
Add the garlic and cream.
Mix well.
Season the mixture with salt and pepper.
Bring the liquid to a boil and reduce to a simmer.
Simmer the mixture for 6 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat and turn into the prepared pan.
Add 1/2 of cheese to casserole and stir.
Sprinkle the top with the remainder of the grated cheese and place in the oven.
Bake for about 4 to 6 minutes or until the cheese is slightly brown and bubbly. **I put this under the broiler after 6 minutes to add more color to the cheese..that's how I like my cheese!**

I made this tonight Misty... it was absolutely delicious!!

oh yay! I'm glad you thought so too. I'm thinking about adding some chicken or something else to make it into a main course!
