Ketogenic Lamb Gyros are the perfect combination of warm savory meat with a cool fatty sauce and crisp, crunchy vegetables. Easy keto recipes don’t have to be difficult! You can learn how to make beautiful, flavorful meals without spending hours in the kitchen.

Ask your butcher for freshly ground lamb meat and bring it home to cook up these lamb gyros in 20 minutes.

Low-carb Cauliflower Tortilla wraps hold these gyros together so you can get a bit of everything in one bite.

I had sauce dripping down my hands while I ate but didn’t mind at all because it tastes so good. Not only do these lamb gyros taste good, I feel amazing after eating them. The macronutrient ratio is just right for maintaining a ketogenic state.

Making Cauliflower Tortillas in bulk is a helpful strategy to simplify food prep. They freeze well and can be stored for a while. Pull them out ahead of time to give enough time for them to thaw. Be sure to place a piece of parchment paper between each tortilla so they don’t stick together and will defrost better.

In place of the tortillas, cauliflower rice can also be used. I teach two ways to make Cauliflower Rice and offer many variations on how to use it in my cookbook, The Ketogenic Edge Cookbook.
