Step 1

Preheat oven to 400.
Process onion in a food processor until very, very fine.
Dump onto a clean tea towel and squeeze out the juice (into the sink obviously)
Return the onion to the food processor and add the remaining ingredients.
Process until the mixture is, well...a paste
Press meat mixture into a loaf pan, trying to avoid as many air pockets as possible.
Bake for 60-75 minutes.
Cool and refrigerate until cold. Slice into 1/8-1/4 inch slices and sear both sides in hot skillet.
Serve with soft flat bread, tzatziki sauce, shredded lettuce, onion (we like our onions caramelized) and tomatoes.

Step 2

Tzatziki Sauce

Grate cucumber into a clean tea towel. Squeeze out excess liquid.
Chop the cucumber very fine.
Stir everything together and refrigerate a few hours to allow flavors to meld.
