LCHF Gyro with Tzatziki Sauce

on September 20, 2012

I love to try new recipes. Especially if they include ingredients I have not tried before!

While I have eaten out at Greek restaurants before I had never attempted to cook anything Greek. For some reason it just wasn’t even a thought. And honestly I was scared of making anything with lamb. I have never bought it and hate to make an expensive meal the kids won’t eat.

That is until Joe came home with a recipe for Gyros with Tzatziki. He got it from someone at work, so I am sorry I can not directly credit the source. BUT I can give you the recipe that I think everyone in your family will enjoy. It was a nice change of pace for us, and even the kiddos ate it up:).


  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 1/2 c. chopped onion
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. marjoram
  • 1/2 tsp. Rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper


  1. Mix ingredient and allow to sit in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
  2. While you wait make the Tzatziki sauce (recipe below) and place in fridge
  3. Pre-heat oven to 325
  4. Blend meat mixture in foor processor for about a minute until completely smooth
  5. Form into a meatloaf shape and bake for 45 minutes to a hour


  • 2 c. Greek full fat yogurt (can be hard to find, so make sure you read labels!)
  • 1 cucumber peeled, sliced, and seeded
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic

I bought my family low carb pita bread to go with it, but I ate mine on spinach with half a tomato from the garden. It was delish!!!

Hope you enjoy, and if you try it let me know what you thought 🙂
