I had a hankering for some gyros for some time. This recipe filled the void. Worked out really well. Not sure if anyone else tried this, but I but the meat mixture in a loaf pan filled about half way up and put in freezer until just firm. Took out and sliced width-wise (about 1/4 inch thick slices) and pan fryed in a bit of olive oil. Great recipe.

I have found the secret to a great greek yogurt sauce (tzatziki) is to cut the yogurt with a bit of sour cream. Also, I like to omit the sugar, add a bit of lemon juice, mint, and fresh oregano - yum! Slather that on top of these delicious pitas and you're in business!

I have been making these for a couple of years now, and I can't believe that I never rated it! These have a really authentic Gyro taste and I really enjoy it served with tzatziki sauce, spinach, and tomatoes on a pita. To save time and effort, I skip the step of forming into patties and just brown the ground beef and add seasonings.

This was excellent, quick and simple. I don´t think I will be using "real" meat for my gyros again.

These are good. I didn't use the sauce because I didn't have yogurt..I had a recipe with sour cream. But still a thumbs up! Thanks for the recipe.

My husband and I really enjoyed this. It was tasty and easy. Next time I'll leave out the sugar in the yogurt. Thanks for a different tasty meal!

We really enjoyed this dish! I doubled the sauce and used the leftovers as a salad dressing - yum!
