It's really sad for me (I'm borned and raised in Greece) to read an article about "real" Greek gyro and the first ingredient as I see is a lamb! THAT IS WRONG!!! That is not gyros! Is Turkish doner!! The REAL Greek gyro is made with PORK or CHICKEN!!! You can travel in Greece from side to side. I guarantee you that you are not going to see that thing!!! Thank you very much!
I was hoping our lamb was tastier, but that is no fault of this recipe. Very tasty. I would have liked the tomatoes slightly smaller and regular tzatziki sauce. Very tasty meal, marinaded lamb overnight to help make dinner quicker. Thanks for Posting. Made ZWT 6.
We both really enjoyed this fresh flavorful dish for dinner and for lunch the next day. It took a little fore thought to marinate the meat a 1 1/2 days before and to prepare the yogurt the morning before. The recipe was otherwise really simple, and the flavor was well worth the trouble.
I love Gyros and these are great. Very easy and delicious. I marinated everything for about 5 hours, and that was long enough, in my opinion, but I'd go even longer. I'm used to the "yogurt sauce" being Tzatziki, but this was easier and still very good. I actually found real Greek yogurt (for the first time in my life) and used that, which has a different texture than plain yogurt. I also left out the romaine lettuce as you can see in my photo.
