Course Main Course
Cuisine greek
Cook Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Servings 4 serving


  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 lb ground beef ( you cans 1 lb 1lbs
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp marjoram
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • plum tomatoes
  • onion
  • feta cheese greek
  • pita bread


  • mix everything well by hand in a big bowl
  • dump it into a food processer and pulse for about a minute until the meat mixture is tacky. This step is key and gives the gyro loaf its thick texture, if you donu2019t do this, youu2019ll just make meat loaf.
  • (optional, but tastier) put the meat in the fridge for 1-2 hours
  • Pack the meat tightly around the roasting spit thing (see above). If you dont have or want a vertial roasting spit thing, meat loaf pans will work too, but then you wont look badass as you saw the meat off the thing.
  • Cook the meat at 325F for 45-60 mins or until the center is no longer pink (about 165F on a meat thermometer)
