Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

White Wine, Alcoholic Drink, and Ingredient are my top picks for Gyros. If you feel like going Greek with your Greek food, assyrtiko and moschofilero are both lovely white wines to pair with chicken, seafood, etc. Agiorgitiko is a full bodied red suitable for roasted meats and lamb. One wine you could try is The Bachelor "The Final ". It has 4.9 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 20 dollars.

The Bachelor "The Final "

The resulting wine is a soft shade of blush pink. Aromatically it has lovely aromas of strawberries, red cherries, and rose petals that give way to flavors of raspberries, strawberry jam, and a hint of spice on a lush, silky palate. Juicy acidity and exceptional balance carry through to a crisp, dry finish.

Instructions

  1. Combine ground lamb, water, onion, parsley, oregano, garlic, pepper, salt, cumin and fenugreek and mix thoroughly. Shape into loaf and wrap tightly in plastic film to compress the mixture. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. To cook in the oven: preheat oven to 350F. Unwrap meat mixture and place on a cookie sheet or shallow baking dish and bake 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Remove from oven, drain excess fat and let stand 15 minutes before carving. Use a very sharp knife and cut in thin slices.
  3. To cook on a rotisserie: push the metal skewer through the center of the meat (lengthwise) and place attachment in oven according to its directions. Cook at 350F, carving the cooked and crispy outside slices as needed.
  4. To cook on the grill: place the meat on a hot grill. Turn and continue to cook until brown on all sides. Slice thin strips from the browned loaf as it cooks, exposing unbrowned surface to be browned as you carve thin slices from the other side. Continue turning the loaf, browning the surface exposed to the fire while you carve from the side facing away from the coals. When the loaf is too small to carve on the grill.
  5. To assemble:Cut the round pita breads in half. Fill each pocket with slices of meat, thin onion rings and tomato. In a mixing bowl, combine garlic, mustard and red wine vinegar and blend until smooth. Slowly add the olive oil, beating until it is all incorporated and the mixture is smooth. Stir the yogurt until creamy and add it to the other mixture. Pour a little of this dressing over the contents of the pita pockets and serve.
