Beef Gyros Recipe

Publisher Photo
Going out to restaurants for gyros got to be expensive for our family, so I came up with this homemade version. Usually, I set out the fixings so everyone can assemble their own. My husband and our two busy teens request them often. —Sheri Scheerhorn, Hills, Minnesota

"I used low fat yogurt ranch and it was great!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 3, 2013

"This was a neat meal; felt like a party! :) Served with homemade pita (TOH recipe) and homemade tzatziki sauce rather than ranch dressing. (In a blender, combine 1 cup fat free, plain Greek yogurt; 1 cucumber, seeded and chopped; the juice of 1/2 lemon; 1 T olive oil; 1 clove a garlic; fresh dill and salt and pepper)"

"We liked this recipe and will be making it again. The only thing I would change is to add seasoning to the meat. Otherwise fast, easy and delicious!"

"Great easy, fast, healthy AND delicious recipe!! I used feta and cheddar.. and I seasoned the meat with a little garlic salt and pepper. I also set everything on the table so the whole family can make there own gyro the way they want! Very big hit with a family of picky eaters!"
