Description

These gyros and incredibly easy, delicious, and very summery when smothered in cool, creamy, cucumber tzatziki sauce! While they may not be the most traditional gyro recipe they’re mighty tasty!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE GYRO FILLING:
  • ½ Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 4 ounces, weight Sliced Deli Roast Beef
  • 3 drops Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 dashes Lemon Pepper
  • 1 dash Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder, Divided
  • 3 dashes Black Pepper
  • _____
  • FOR THE TZATZIKI SAUCE:
  • 1 whole Cucumber, Divided Use
  • 1 container 8oz Greek Yogurt
  • ½ whole Red Onion, Divided Use
  • 2 dashes White Wine Vinegar
  • ½ teaspoons Dill
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • _____
  • FOR ASSEMBLY:
  • 2 slices Naan Bread Or Any Flatbread
  • 1 whole Tomato, Sliced
  • 2 ounces, weight Feta Cheese, Diced
  • 6 ounces, weight Canned Black Olives Sliced

Preparation

For gyro filling:

Heat olive oil in a skillet and add beef, worcestershire sauce, a dash of lemon pepper, paprika, 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder, black pepper, and heat the beef. Let it sit on low heat while tzatziki sauce is prepared.

For Tzatziki sauce:
Finely dice half of the cucumber and combine with yogurt, 1/4 of the red onion finely diced, vinegar, and all remaining seasonings.

Spray your flatbread with cooking spray and put it under the broiler until it is soft and warmed through. Fill it with a generous amount of roast beef, followed by lots of tzatziki sauce, feta cheese, tomato, cucumber, and black olives.

Oh, Yes! This looks amazing. I love Gyros, but in my small town it is very hard to find lamb, so I just wait until summer time and buy my yearly Gyro at the fair. I will deffinately try this very soon. Thanks for sharing.

These were SUPER delicious and so easy to make. They are a perfect meal for a hot summer day! The only thing I’d note is that it makes a TON of tzaziki sauce with 8 oz of yogurt. I bought more roast beef than was specified in the recipe, so I was able to make 10 half-pitas and still had sauce left over! I’m not complaining though — I used the rest of the sauce as a dip for salt & pepper chips. Delicious! Thanks for this great recipe!

Yum! I loved this, and the roast beef was great (though not so traditional)! The tzatziki sauce was good too, maybe a little onion-y for me, but still great!

Admittedly, I was skeptical. Deli roast beef? In a gyro?!? But I gave it a shot, tripling the ingredients to feed my family of 5 and we gobbled it up! While it didn’t have the total authentic gyro taste, we didn’t care because it was still delicious! I added a bit of Cavender’s Greek seasoning to the spice mix as well. And will you hate me if I admit that I cheated and bought the tzakiki sauce at Trader Joe’s instead of following the recipe for it? ;) This will definitely be added to our family’s list of faves. Thank you, thank you!
