      Yummy! I spotted this recipe a few weeks ago and have been looking forward to making this - fortunately, it did not disappoint! I used lamb because I love it with these flavors (plus gyros are often made with a combo of lamb and beef). My one criticism (if you can call it that) is that I would say this is more like 6 servings not 10 servings. Otherwise I loved it! Thanks for sharing!

      This was a pretty good recipe. I wound up mixing ground beef and rice together since everyone said that it didn't seem to make as much as the recipe suggested and we got about 8 burritos out of it. I also quadrupled the paste mixture, except I only doubled the cinnamon, cumin and red pepper flakes. I also added in some paprika (about 2 tsp), just because I like it. When I added the paste to the pan, I also added about 1/2 cup of water for a saucier burrito. The only thing I think I will do differently next time is that I would chop up the cucumber and put it in a strainer for a bit to get rid of some of the liquid. On my first bite the sauce rocketed out of the bottom of my burrito like a geyser, but I will say that it tasted very good. I also stirred the onions into the sauce since that's how I've always made tzatziki and it softens the onions after it sits for a bit. This was a pretty solid recipe that we all enjoyed and I will be making again in the near future.

      Someone posted a review and photo on one of the community forums and I knew I needed to try this recipe. Made as is, it made 6 small or 5 large Gyro burritos. The meat mixture was wonderful. The cucumber sauce was a bit bland, so I added about a tsp of garlic. My hubby loves gyros and was pleased with this version. Thanks for sharing!
