The Gyro Meatloaf Recipe

Last month I created a meatball recipe that mimicked the taste of gyro meat in the post My Gyro Obsession and The Meatball Solution. Well I have taken the same principles and applied them to meatloaf for even better results. This is the best tasting meatloaf I’ve ever had. It tastes like just gyro meat.

Summary: A meatloaf that tastes like gyro meat.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds of ground beef
  • 1 pound of ground lamb
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 onion, diced, dried in paper towel
  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of cumin
  • 1/2 – 1 tablespoon of oregano
  • 1/2 – 1 tablespoon of marjoram
  • 1/2 – 1 tablespoon of ground rosemary
  • 1/2 – 1 tablespoon of thyme
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 330 F.
  2. In a large bowl mix every ingredient together thoroughly.
  3. Place mix into a baking pan. I like the larger Pyrex baking dishes.
  4. Heat for 35-40 minutes.
  5. Test internal temperature for 160 degrees.

Quick notes

I’ve made this recipe using all ground beef and it tastes great that way as well.

To make it even better, add some Tzatziki Sauce. Feta cheese and tomatoes too!

  1. Sounds delish! Try mixing in a little grass-fed beef liver next time and get a nice hit of Vitamin D. That’s how I consume it…in meatloaf!

  2. This is somewhat unrelated but it is about healthy food.

    Apparently Starbucks has a pilot store called Evolution that serves juice drinks in Bellevue, WA. You write very well-written and unbiased opinions of coffee shops, I was wondering if reviewing this place is in the cards.

  3. @Thomas – Yeah, I saw that Melissa Allison from the Seattle Times wrote a story about that juice place. I am not a juice drinker. I think slamming liquid fructose is hell on your liver, so I have zero interest in visiting the store. Thanks for the nice words.

  4. @Sara – I tried something similar to that recently, only I swapped out the breadcrumbs for Potato buds to kept it gluten free. Plus it had ginger and jalapenos. Pretty good.
