Keto Recipe – Beef and Lamb Gyros

I had a craving the other day for some nice, big, Gyro sandwiches. You know the ones I’m talking about: hot fluffy bread stuffed with thinly shaved meat, veggies, and of course that yogurt sauce. I’m not even sure what the best part of a Gyro is, they’re so good.

So I created this keto-friendly version that makes use of our coconut flour tortilla recipe. You can easily bake the meat in your oven, so you do not need to own a rotisserie. The meat mixture is put through a food processor in order to get a texture that is similar to what you experience at a restaurant. If you do not own a food processor then don’t worry. You can simply mix by hand too.

I used a mixture of half beef and half lamb because I like the flavor and because lamb is very expensive in my area. You could also do full beef, or full lamb if you’d like.

I think it is very important to use fresh dill in the tzatziki sauce, dried will simply not do except as a true last resort.

If you’d like to prepare this recipe but serve at a later time, then skip the broiling step until it’s time to serve. Alternatively, you could also pan-fry single servings of the meat slices if you just want to make a quick sandwich for lunch.

Gyro Meat
1 ounce pork rinds
1 tablespoon oregano
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
4 cloves garlic, (3/8 ounce)
1 pound ground beef
1 pound ground lamb

Tzatziki Sauce
1 cup full-fat plain Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon white vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
2.5 ounces cucumber, seeded and grated, ~1/4 whole
2 tablespoons fresh dill, minced
Salt and pepper to taste

Use recipe for our coconut flour tortillas, but use a smaller pot lid and roll the tortillas a little thicker. You will want to end up with the same number of servings so that the nutrition per flatbread does not change. You will end up with two extra breads since the meat recipe is for 8 servings. You could reserve them for another recipe, or even freeze for future use.

Add these at your preference, but don’t forget to calculate their nutrition.

Crumbled feta cheese
Kalamata olives
Thinly sliced red onion
