Gyros (Greek Lamb)
gyros (greek lamb): 
 
2 lb.  lean ground lamb
2 slice  homemade bread, toasted and crushed
1 tsp  allspice, pounded (ground)
1 tsp  coriander, crushed
1 clove  garlic, crushed
1   onion, grated
1 tsp  fresh savory, chopped
  salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
3 slice  bacon
8   middle eastern breads, or any substitute bread or roll
2   tomatoes, chopped or sliced thin and seasoned with vinegar and olive oil
1 cup  fresh parsley, chopped
1 cup  plain yogurt (may strain the yogurt)
 
in a large bowl, combine the above ingredients up to and including the 
salt and pepper, and knead thoroughly. mixture should be spicy but not too 
herby, and hold its shape. break into 5 sections, each the size of a navel 
orange, then break each section into 6 balls. knead and flatten slightly 
to a thickness of about 3/4 inch. cut the bacon slices into widths equal 
to the meatballs and place a slice on each one. continue shaping the 
balls, keeping the slices of bacon between them. slip a cane skewer 
through the centers and roll gently with the palms to smooth the edges 
(you will need 5 or 6 skewers total, depending on their size). cover and 
refrigerate overnight.\ 
 
note: i interpret the above instructions as resulting in the meat skewered 
something like so: o)o)o)o)o)- where 'o'=meatball and ')'=bacon slice to 
cook, set on a broiler tray or grill and cook over/under moderate heat, 
turning every 5 minutes. the surface will be crusty and the inside cooked 
within 25 minutes. to serve, put out the pitta, meat, tomatoes, parsley 
and yogurt in separate dishes. let guests open the bread or rolls and 
stuff them with meat and garnishings to their taste. 
 
note: to strain yogurt, put in cheesecloth and put in a colander or hang 
it over the sink. it will give off a lot of liquid in an hour or even 
less.
