Place red onion in a food processor and process until finely chopped.
Remove the onion from the food processor and place in a tea towel, squeezing to remove all the juices.
Return the onion back to the food processor with the remaining ingredients and pulse for approximately 1 minute until you get a paste like consistency. TIP: The gyro lamb mixture will form together in the food processor, similar to a ball of dough.
Place mixture in a glass baking dish. Flatten and smooth the meat into a nice meatloaf.
Place in a water bath and cook at 325°F for 60-75 minutes or you have an internal temp of 165°F-170°F.
Once removed from the oven, drain the fat.
Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes and place on a wire rack (I also put a pan under the rack to catch any drippings) and place a heavy object on top to compress the gyros meat. I used a cast iron skillet with 3 cans inside the skillet for additional weight.
Remove the weight and let rest for 30 minutes.
Slice the meat into desired sized slices.
Place meat slices on a baking sheet and broil for 3-5 minutes until crispy!
Serve in pita bread with lettuce, sliced onion, sliced tomato and this Authentic Greek Tzatziki Sauce.
