Gyro Fake

So last night, we wanted some protein for dinner.  I had made pita earlier in the day.  Seemed like gyros were in order, but I don't have a supply of lamb... so sad.  Improvisation was in order.

For the meat I thawed a few Steakeze and... for seasoning:

1 tablespoon: dried chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon each: garlic powder, oregano, cumin, marjoram, rosemary, thyme, black pepper, sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Grind the seasonings in a mortar and pestle (or however you prefer to pulverize).

Toss one pound of thawed Steakeze or thinly sliced meat with the seasonings and let sit to allow the flavors to become acquainted with one another before tossing into a hot pan.  Fry until just a bit crispy.

Serve with pita, tadziki, tomatoes, lettuce, feta... and tea.
