    diner524's Note:

    This is a recipe by Paul Delios and here is a link to his recipe: http://www.greekboston.com/greek_lifestyle/recipes.shtml, that I adapted to suit my tastes, for seasonings. Here is what is stated about the recipe: "My Papou first introduced this dish to me when I was just a boy. This was when flank steak was considered one of the less desirable cuts of meat because of its stringiness, only the real ethnic groups new how to prepare this tough cut of meat, Well nowadays this cut is readily available at most supermarkets and enjoyed by all. I loved this dish so much that I decided to make it at the James Beard House where it was warmly received back in March of 2006" Posting for ZWT, so untried by me at time of posting.

Grill the Gyros on each side for about 4 to 6 minutes or until your desired doneness.
