Lamb Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce

posted in: Recipes

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.
