    Shaye's Note:

    I got this recipe from the newspaper years ago, and make it frequently. I serve it with my cucumber yogurt sauce, which I'm also posting. Be warned- It is very garlicky. Also, use less pepper if you're using all beef instead of lamb.

      I've made a recipe similar using 3/4 ground beef and 1/4 ground pork. I also add 2 TBSP finely chopped fresh basil. I roll into the center of each "burger" sliced feta cheese and broil or fry on a grill pan. The added flavor of basil and feta is really yummy!

      I can't believe how simple, yet flavorful this was! I won't have to go out for Gyros again - it's that good. I did use a combo of lamb & beef, but other than that I followed the recipe to a T. I did come up with a better (in my opinion) way to shape the meat though: Line a meatloaf pan with foil & press part of the mixture in the pan until it's about 1-1/2" thick. Pull up on the foil to remove it & place on a cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining mixture & cook as directed. This way you get the nice uniform shape & you can thinly slice the loaf when it is done for perfect gyro meat. You can't tell it didn't come off a spit.

      I too was skeptical about how authentic this would taste. Gyros are by far one of my most favorite things to eat, and until now I was spending way too much money at an authentic family owned Greek Restaurant called King Davids. They have the best gyros ever. This gyro meat is almost exactly like it. it's sooo tender and flavorful. I loved it. I mixed it by hand for a long time to ensure it would be tender, and instead of broiling it, I baked it at 300 for about 6 minutes each side. This really makes it tender. I sliced it really thin and put it in warmed pocketless pitas with lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and tzatziki sauce, I make myself. Thank you so much!
