    approx 3 pounds of ground meat(i used veal and pork)
    1 tsp cumin
    1/2 tsp thyme
    1 1/2 tsp white pepper
    1/2 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp montreal steak spice
    1/4 cup parmesan cheese
    mix together...overworking is good here or you can run it through your food mixer. shape into a roll and let it sit in the fridge overnight, covered.
    i used a grill with a rotissiere and cooked it until it hit 155*F and let residual heat take it the rest of the way.
    the sauce i used tonight
    1 bottle of kraft cucumber salad dressing
    1 small container of plain yogurt
    lots of black pepper
    the traditional sauce
    2/3 c. Canned Sweetened Condensed Milk
    1/4 c. White Vinegar
    1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
    Stir the milk and garlic powder together. Add vinegar quickly. You will have to stir the sauce for a couple of minutes in order for the vinegar and milk to mix properly. Leave it sit for a few minutes.
    you will also need
    onions, sliced paper thin
    pita bread
    for the lettuce
    olive oil
    parmesan cheese
    salt and pepper

    thanks..the meat is really strong in the spice department. either of the sauces that i posted balance out that flavor.

    and thanks to Mrs.Rivet for the compliment.

    i finally found the setting i like on my camera to take close up pics...

    Looks great and I love gyros too, but have never made them myself. I also am a huge fan of grilled romaine!

    Looks great! I would like to try this for hubby but with ground lamb. I guess you would use the same spices, maybe a little extra as lamb is usually stronger flavored. I would like this though with the veal and burger! Definitely on my list!!

    Looks great!  I have a similar recipe that I do, but I smoke the meat in tamale casings (I have a thread about it) and grilled lavash bread and feta etc...  it's a variation of the kebaps I hate in Turkey.  At any rate, this looks like a fine recipe and I'll have to try the rotisserie.

    Wow! what a great idea.  Grilled romaine is one of my favorite things, too.
