Grilled lamb gyro wraps with Greek tzatziki sauce are made in minutes on the grill. Place on a pita wrap with cool veggies and tzatziki sauce.

Ingredients

For the tzatziki sauce:

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cucumber seeded, peeled
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint, minced
  • pinch of salt and pepper

For the lamb:

  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 egg
  • 3 lb Aussie grass-fed ground lamb

For the gyro wraps: 

  • 4 pita wraps
  • toppings: chopped tomatoes, parsley, and cucumber
  • chilled tzatziki sauce

Preparation

For the tzatziki sauce: Using a whisk, mix Greek yogurt, minced garlic, chopped cucumber, lemon juice, olive oil, chopped mint, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours, this helps the flavor.

For the lamb: Preheat your Big Green Egg or grill to 400 degrees. Soak wood skewers in cold water for 1 hour, or use metal skewers. In a large bowl, add diced onions, minced garlic, breadcrumbs, cinnamon, oregano, parsley, rosemary, cumin, allspice, paprika, salt, pepper, and crumbled feta. Mix well, then crack in one egg and add ground Aussie lamb. Using clean hands or a spatula, combine until it comes together. Use a medium size ice cream scoop and then roll the lamb meatballs to almost 3″ in size, as they will shrink on the grill. Push 4-5 lamb meatballs onto each skewer leaving space in between. Grill for 5-6 minutes per side at 400 degrees on your Big Green Egg or grill turning every 5-6 minutes until nicely brown.

To assemble: Place 3 Aussie lamb meatballs onto the pita, sprinkle on chopped tomato, cucumber, and drizzle with tzatziki sauce. Garnish with parsley, and Be Aussome!
