Gyro Burger Pitas

Gyro Burger Pitas

Serves 4.

These were fun, and different than our normal line-up for meals.  Both The Mr. and I both really enjoyed the change.

1 lb. lean ground lamb
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 tsp. dry onion
1 Tbsp. Dijon or coarse grain mustard
3/4 tsp. Kosher salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. dry oregano
1 tsp. rosemary, dry or fresh and chopped

Tzatziki sauce
4 pitas or 6″ rounds of flatbread 
Fresh tomato and thin onion slices

Gently combine lamb, garlic, onion, mustard, salt, pepper, vinegar, oregano, and rosemary with your hands and shape into 4 oblong patties. Grill for 5-6 minutes on each side and remove from heat. Allow to stand for 5 minutes. Place on pitas or flatbread and add onions, tomatoes, and Tzatziki. Fold like a taco and serve immediately. For easy serving and clean-up, wrap in aluminum foil.

I sauted my onion slices instead of using fresh.  Use whichever is your preference!


  1. I know I'd like this because I love gyros :) did you find ground lamb at the regular grocery store? I'll have to pay more attention next time I go.

  2. Yes, I found it at my local Giant Eagle. It was near the prepared meats and organic chicken. Just ask the butcher if you don't see it right away. Hopefully your grocery store has it too!
