  • Porkrastinators Pit Roasted Gyros(Porkrastinators Tzatziki Sauce)

    Ingredients

    • 1 Boneless Leg of lamb Aprox 3-5 Pounds• 16 Oz Plain Greek or regular yogurt
    • 5 Clove Garlic, minced• 1 Medium Cucumber
    • 1 Handfull fresh oregano, chopped• 2-3 Clove Garlic
    • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary• 1 Tbs Olive Oil
    • &#189 Cup Extra-Virgin Olive Oil• 2 tsp Red Wine Vinegar
    • 1 Tbs Dijon Mustard• 5-6 Mint Leaves
    • Salt• 1 Pinch Salt
    • Pepper
    • Porkrastinators Tzatziki Sauce

    Instructions

    Unroll the boneless leg of lame and begin scoring it vertically starting at one end to further open up the leg and expose more meat. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Take remaining ingredients and place into a bowl except the olive oil. Start whisking briskly and start drizzling olive oil in to make the emulsion. Rub the leg down with the seasoned oil mixture. Roll up leg and tie with butchers twine.

    Roast on the pit at 300-350 until internal temperature reaches 145-150 then pull and rest, tented in foil for 20 minutes. Slice the leg into strips. Slice some onions and tomatoes and serve on pita bread with the homemade Tzatziki recipe.

    Notes

    Place the yogurt in coffee filter, gather up the edges, suspend over a bowl, and drain for 2 hours in the refrigerator.

    Place the chopped cucumber in a coffee filter and squeeze to remove the liquid; discard liquid. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the drained yogurt, cucumber, salt, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, and mint. Serve as a sauce for gyros.
