Gyro Meat

"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. "

    We didn't actually do this according to plan. Our son, a waiter and "food snob" (lovingly so-called by his brother), made a fat, colorful, wonderful, stacked-tall gyro-burger on a bun. He used Recipe#59336 generously. It was amazing to look at, marvelous to eat.

    I made this 2 ways- one with chicken and one with lamb. Although they are equally delicious, I think I will only make the chicken next time. A) It is cheaper and B) I will only have to prep/cook it once, since the Hubby and I both eat chicken. The Lamb has a stronger flavor overall, so the seasoning is not as strong in it. The 1 1/2 tsp of oregano in the chicken turns out very strong, which I liked. I formed 1 lb of meat into 4 burgers and cooked them in the cast iron skillet on the stovetop, and then I sliced it into thin strips. In the summer, I might grill these outside! Thanks for the great recipe; I will definitely be making this again and again!

    This was exceptional. We served it with greek potatoes, greek green beans, and the tzatziki recommended by another rater, Deb Wolf. I was surprised how well it sliced into thin strips. And it was even better the next day for lunch :) Thanks!

    This is a good meat for gyros. I served this with pitas, tomatoes, onions and some tzatziki sauce. We really liked these. Thank you for sharing the recipe with us.
