Grilled Lamb Gyro Wraps and Greek Tzatziki Sauce are made in minutes on the grill, place on a pita wrap with cool veggies and tzatziki sauce…This post is sponsored by True Aussie Beef and Lamb and Big Green Egg
For the summer grilling season, I have partnered with True Aussie Beef and Lamb & Big Green Egg. My new aussome Aussie friends provided lot’s of beef and lamb to grill and Big Green Egg sent a gorgeous large grill that we love for many reasons.
More recipes are in the works for Aussie Lamb and Beef, so get your grill skills ready!
Thanks again, True Aussie Beef and Lamb & Big Green Egg for sponsoring this post, it has made our summer delicious…
What Is Pita Bread?
Pita bread is a flatbread or bread made with flour, water, and salt. The dough is rolled flat, and baked in a hot oven. Many flatbreads are unleavened—although some are slightly leavened, such as pita bread.
Cooking Tips for an Aussome Grill Party:
1. Bring your meat up to room temperature before cooking— and prevent it from drying out.
2. Grass-fed meats like Aussie beef and lamb require less cooking time—about 30% less is a good rule of thumb.
3. Allow steaks, chops, and roasts to rest 5-10 minutes before cutting—it keeps them nice and juicy.
4. For extra juicy meat and easy cleanup, slice cooked meat on a rimmed baking sheet or roasting pan. Plate the meat then pour the juices on top.
True Aussie Beef and Lamb Busted Myths:
Myth: It’s “gamey”
Truth: Its flavor is actually closer to what Mother Nature intended because the animals only eat lush, green and abundant pastures. Australian lamb is mild and almost nutty in flavor and aroma.
Myth: It’s dry
Truth: Only if you over-cook it. Seared in a hot pan or grill, grass-fed beef and lamb are more tender, flavorful and juicy between rare and medium. Cuts like legs and shoulders require a longer cook time, low and slow is the best way to go.
Myth: My kids won’t like it!
Truth: Why not? Grass-fed beef and lamb are mild in flavor, juicy and tender. And we tested lamb with kids (without telling them), and they loved it!
People Rave About The Big Green Eggs because…
You can grill, smoke, bake, and roast all on your Big Green Egg (BGE).
This grill gets hot! And you can grill fast at high temperatures.
BGE grills use lump charcoal; no artificial charcoal additives or lighter fluid here!
The flavor of food grilled on the BGE is amazing, it adds a nice smoky flavor.
Temperature is controlled by the bottom and top vents, giving accurate temperatures.
Ceramic cookers are heavy and hold the heat. BGE grills stay hot until you decide to cool it down.
You can add wood for a smokier flavor: apple, cherry, hickory, oak or pecan.
EGGheads (Big Green Egg Fans) love all the BGE accessories to create delicious dishes.
How To Evenly Roll Lamb Meatballs:
- Mix your meatball mixture well combined in a bowl.
- Use a medium size ice cream scoop to get them even sizes.
- Then roll the lamb meatballs to almost 3″ in size, as they will shrink on the grill.
