I used this recipe to make turkey gyros, and it came out great. I used different recipe for tzatziki, because I don't like onions, but the meat itself I will definitely be making often. Thank you.

These were very good. I prefer the ones on here made with Flank Steak, but these are good if I don't have the steak. Thanks for sharing!! :O)

These were good. We used tzatziki we already had, so didn't try the sauce recipe, but the meat was good. Baked in a meatloaf at 350 for about 40min. The meat didn't have much flavor, but in a pita with lots of veggies (especially red onions), and lots of tzatziki, it was a great fresh meal. Will also try with ground turkey.

These were really good. My entire family likes them. I doubled the ingredients for the filling, used ground turkey and baked like a meatloaf. I have made this twice in the past month. Definitely a keeper!

We loved it. Tasted just like gyros at our local Greek place. I substitued venison for the ground beef. I doubed the recipe and placed in in the fridge for a couple of days to let the spices meld. I also make the Pita Bread #60108 to go with these. I made into oblong patties to fit pita and did not slice. Did not use lettuce.

We absolutely LOVED this and it totally tasted like eating an authentic Gyro! I was SUPER skeptical about this recipe since I'm used to lamb gyros but I had a craving and had the beef...so I gave it a shot. I increased all seasoning in the beef by quite a bit (eyeballed it) and used Tzatziki (which was EXCELLENT!) for the Tzatziki. We LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it! My husband tasted the beef without the sauce and felt it tasted like a plain burger to him. I think you definitely want the sauce and the fillings to make this a true tasting Gyro. I served this with sliced onions and sliced tomatoes. No lettuce since I've never seen it served with lettuce in any of the restaurants I've eaten it in. GREAT recipe and will definitely make again. Thank you !

This is VERY much a Greek Gyro recipe. I did however, find that the meat had very little flavor, but I also left out the salt. Won't do that next time. But the sauce and the rest were wonderful! I just need to find out how to make the pita bread all light and fluffy, because even heated, mine was kinda stiff. Anyway! A+ recipe. Can't wait to try it again! Even hubby said he was willing for another shot, since all the other flavors were exact!

My husband and I didn't like the sauce at all! It was too bland for our tastes. We ended up just putting ranch dressing on instead. Not high cuisine, but we liked the gyros a lot better without the sauce.

My kids really enjoyed this meal. I didn't make patties, though. I just cooked up the meat, defatted it and add the herbs and other seasonings and cooked a little more. Used shredded cabbage instead of lettuce.
