The simple Cucumber Yogurt Sauce Recipe is here:
Makes 1 to 2 pounds depending on cooking method
2 pounds lean ground meat
1 pound lean ground lamb
Combine the meat and knead these spices into it:
4 tablespoons Lemon Juice [This goes on at the end to baste]
1-2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon thyme powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 tablespoon oregano powder
1/2 tablespoon marjoram
1/2 tablespoon cumin powder
1/2 tablespoon black pepper
Baste your Gyro meat with the lemon in the last hour of dehydration.
This is wonderful served with toasted pita and fresh sliced sweet onions, tomatoes, lettuce and Tzatziki sauce also known as Cucumber – Yogurt sauce. The simple recipe is in this book.
Oven method at 140 degrees could be 12 hours, but I am not really out to dry it so much, so 4 hours is fine for me.
