Gyros is really the Greek name for döner kebab, which is made on a rotating spit. That's impractical at home, so we make it from marinated strips of lamb fried on the barbecue. On 15 August 2010 I was left to marinate a gyros without a recipe. This is the recipe I came up with.


quantity       ingredient       step
750 g       lamb round       1
15 g       garlic       2
1.5 g       thyme branch       2
2 g       rosemary branch       2
50 ml       oil       2
1 g       dried oregano       2


  1. Chop the meat into thin strips.

  2. Remove the leaves from the herb branches and discard the branches. Peel the garlic. Blend all ingredients until finely chopped, then marinate for 3 hours.

  3. Fry in oil on a barbecue plate until relatively crisp.
