I've always wanted to tour the Mediterranean, but this is as close as I'll get... for now. Top these gyros with a yogurt sauce that doubles as a dip for pita chips. —Daniel Anderson, Kenosha, Wisconsin

"My hubs and I had this just last night. I used a red onion instead of a white just for contrast. I used my own dried herbs instead of fresh and they worked out just fine. Just remember that dried measurements are different than fresh measurements. It was very, very good and I know we'll have it again."

"The beef and yogurt sauce are perfect together in a soft pita! My family loved this recipe. I pan fried the steaks whole and sliced them thin after cooking so I could keep them just a bit rare. Thanks trixiejo302 for the salad suggestion. It was a wonderful accompaniment!"

"Yum! Instead of pitas, I used little whole wheat pita sandwich breads cause pitas were not available at my grocery store."

"The recipe calls for 4t oil, divided, but doesn't say where to put 2 of the teaspoons. I put it in the bag with the meat and it was great. I also added chopped cucumber to the sauce and it was a nice addition."
