Remember my announcement stating that I was the Chicago ambassador for FlatOut Bread – sharing my #FlatOutLove flavor inspiration for the city of Chicago? I’m pleased to share the recipe that I created to showcase the city of Chicago. We love great stories of foods invented here, and I tried to make sure that the food stayed true to the flavors and tastes of what makes the dish uniquely Chicago. While I ran out of time to make gyro meat from scratch (and it was hot) I decided that we would take lamb cubes instead and make it a gyro remix.
These are great to make for quick meals for the school week, because you are only cooking your lamb meat, and possibly grilling the FlatOut foldover bread for a bit of crispness. It’s nice to have those go to recipes in your arsenal, because it takes away some of the deep planning that so many of us do.
#FlatOutLove Flavor Gyros
1 package of FlatOut foldover bread
1 lb of cubed lamb
3 medium tomatoes, diced
1 medium onion sliced thinly
Tzatziki sauce (you can find the recipe online, or purchase some at the grocery store)
~ Before cooking your lamb make your cucumber sauce or mix the store bought sauce thoroughly and refrigerate until ready to dress the gyros
~ Season lamb with salt and pepper and cook in olive oil in a medium sized pan, taking care not to crowd the skillet, until browned on all sides. About five minutes
~ While the lamb is cooking thinly slice the onion and dice the tomatoes and set aside.
~ Drain the lamb on a plate lined with paper towel, and prepare all ingredients to be assembled for the gyros
~ Assemble the gyro as you see fit, adding as little or as much of each as you want.
