    Spicy Italian kabobs are great finger foods for game time.

    Recipe #229266

    1 Reviews |  By MarySC

    After trying several other recipes and being disappointed, I've experimented multiple times to come up with this version. The meat is tender, flavorful, and pretty darn close to what you get at a very good Greek restaurant. I usually use lamb necks, which are very economical... but it does take some work to get the meat off the bones, and the yield is only about 50%. You need a good food processor and a grill to make this recipe!! Please note that you need to start at least two days before serving.. and three days is better. My fussy 5 year old LOVES this gyros even though she won't touch a hamburger.

    Recipe #395442

    Tender marinated chicken and a creamy cucumber yogurt sauce tucked into a pita, topped with lettuce and tomato if you like. Sounds like a great lunch to me! Cooked in or outside! Note: time to make does NOT include 1 hour marinating time. from TOH... ZWT Greek and US Regional - East Coast

    Recipe #141367

    Guilt-free fries! By all means try the malt vinegar, other vinegars won't be the same. Very easy.

    Think this came from a MasterCook export. I have never tried making them but this recipe seems easy enough. Prep time includes rising time. Have fun!

    Recipe #81116

    This is a favourite of mine, I love to have it with FALAFEL! Hmmmm, yummmy!

    Recipe #11424

    Gyros ("yeeros" in Greek) is made with compressed meat,consisting of various cuts of beef that are chopped, minced or ground,then shaped into a cylindrical shape, and roasted on a vertical skewer. This is a good substitute for the commercial gyro.

    Recipe #39602

    Yes, you can make authentic gyros at home --> the texture and flavor of this meat is as good as you get in a good Greek restaurant, without the traditional rotating spit.. but this is just the recipe and technique for making the meat, for I'm assuming you know the drill on making the classic gyro sandwich - stuff the meat in a grilled pita with sliced tomatoes, onions and tzaziki sauce.. Enjoy!

    Recipe #285900

    This is a Turkish style sauce.

    Recipe #386327

    ***Update: There was a typo with the salt amount and it has now been changed to 2 teaspoons. Also, based on the review, I would like to clarify that for the strips, you compress the meat with your hands like you would make a burger, but shape it a bit thinner and strip shaped.*** This is very flavorful and quick since you just pan fry thin strips of the ground meat. Feel free to experiment with the toppings... For greek go with tzatziki, tomato and onion (even french fries are great in this combo). For donar (like you get in Europe) top with aioli and harissa with coleslaw, onion and tomato. For donair (like you get in Canada) top with donair sauce, tomato and onion. This makes a good amount so feel free to form and freeze a portion of the meat for a super quick meal or half the recipe. Please note that I have not included recipes for the different sauces, but there are many recipes available on Zaar. Update: I've added a recipe for a quick version of the aioli and harissa sauces that usually accompany the donar kebabs in Europe; Recipe #292170 .

    Recipe #292013

    I came up with these quick sauces to top off Donar Kebabs (gyros), similar to what you get in Europe. There's a white sauce similar to an aioli and a red chili sauce similar to harissa, but these use shortcuts to cut down on prep time since you're also cooking up the donar kebabs. I make these to go with my recipe Recipe #292013 .

    Recipe #292170

    My take on traditional moussaka. The beauty of this recipe (besides great taste) is it's ability to freeze (and defrost) so well, with no loss of flavour, making it ideal for OAMC (once a month cooking). Note: Greeks do not eat their food piping hot out of the oven - especially in the summer heat. Food is served just warm or at room temperature (but cooked that day - otherwise it is reheated to freshen it). Flavour is more pronounced at this temperature.

    Recipe #59130

    A basic rice pilaf that could be altered to add other veggies, etc. I know I got this from a cookbook, but I can't remember which one.

    Recipe #386310

    This is the real Greek pita. I found this on a Greek web site. I think it was Susie's Place. This can be used for souvlaki and gyros sndwiches. If you bake this longer, you have pita pockets. The time to make includes rising.

    A perfect middle eastern dish! My husband couldnt get enough of it & actually wanted the leftovers the next day!!!! Also in my opinion, it's better than any restaurant i've tried in the US!! So enjoy!

    Recipe #325600

    These potatoes are a staple in our home. Whether accompanying roast lamb or chicken, or just on their own, we have them a couple of times a week. They are delicious and the ones that get overly-brown in the pan and stick a bit are MINE! Clean up is a little tricky with this recipe, unless you line your pans with foil, but I find that just filling the pan up with hot, sudsy water and forgetting for an hour (something I apparently have no problem doing ;-)) helps a lot.

    Recipe #87782

    One of my all-time favorite Greek Dishes! The Egg-Lemon Sauce and squeezed lemon wedges really makes this dish delicious! If you can't find ground lamb you can just use ground beef. Further, I sometimes use ground turkey! However if you do, you need to make sure this dish is cooked throughly.

    Recipe #53676

    This is not quite the chicken doner from the restaurants but it's quite easy to make and satisfy my cravings. You must use fresh chicken and not use chicken that has been previously frozen. You will need to prepare the chicken overnight and freeze. I had trouble slicing my chicken with an electric knife so I would defrost it a little longer then 45 minutes. This recipe comes from www.turkishcookbook.com - For the Aussies ground chicken = minced chicken - Does not include overnight marinating time

    Recipe #222098

    These are absolutelyyyy delicioussss on the grill! But on the days you can't fire up the grill I just put them under the broiler for a couple minutes on both sides and they still come out awesome! This is a must have in Palestine, everyoneee loves kabab!! This recipe also calls for two packets of goya sazon, but I couldn't list it under the ingredients because zaar didn't recognize it. The sazon gives it a nice flavor as well as a little color!
