Beef Gyros Recipe

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 added salt and pepper to the meat while cooking. We also added some garlic to the dressing to add more flavor. I rated this on the basic recipe. Make some additions/changes and you'll have a better taste I believe."

"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!"

"I love gyros despite the fact that they have so much garlic in them. This recipe takes the cake. I can eat a gyro and the garlic isn't going to haunt me. Tastes similiar to the ones I make which is one I got from toh."
