Homemade Gyros (bravevenus)

1/2 onion
1/2 lb ground lamb
1lb ground beef
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 t dried oregano
1 t ground cumin
1 t dried marjoram
1 t dried ground rosemary
1 t dried ground thyme
1 t black pepper
1/4 t sea salt

Cut onion into large chunks. Place in food processor and chop until finely minced. Place onions onto tea towel and squeeze out excess liquid. In medium-large bowl, combine onions with remaining ingredients. Cover and place in refrigerator for minimum of 2 hours, to allow flavors to blend. Remove mix from fridge and place into food processor. Pulse until mix is tacky. Press meat mix into greased loaf pan. Bake loaf at 325º F for 45 – 60 min or until meat registers at 165º F on meat thermometer. Remove loaf from pan and allow to cool slightly. Slice thinly and serve on pita bread with tomatoes, onions and tzatziki sauce. Makes 6 gyros.
