Gyro sandwich meat is made from pressed lamb or beef.

The gyro is a Greek sandwich made from thin, succulent seasoned meats. While this food has its roots in Greece, it is enjoyed in delis and restaurants around the world. The process to make this paper thin meat requires some patience and many home cooks prefer to buy the frozen variety.
