This is an excellent recipe...the spices were perfect for us. I did look for lamb and could not find any so I just used the beef but they were still great!!! Also, as I wanted a quick meal, I just rolled the beef into balls and flattened them, then pan fried them. One other thing I would like to mention is that while I am no gyro expert, I do love them and have ordered them all around the country. Most times I can taste the cinnamon and allspice and to me, that is what makes them authentic. This is the only recipe that I could find that included these two spices and it was truly great!! Thanks Mercy for the recipe!
This was really good. They didn't have ground lamb, so I used only ground beef. Next time I will heat up the meat strips like other reviewers stated instead of having them room temp. Thanks for posting!
Yummmo! Thanks for posting ....was a perfect and less expensive fix than going out! My husband is thrilled!
Loved it! I was amazed by how well it held together without "binders". The only changes I made was using beef and pork instead of beef and lamb, and added a little splenda to the tsatziki sauce.
This turned out really well. Just to let you know it works with ground turkey as well.
This is the best recipe I have found for these!! Great job! I get many wonderful comments on the sauce. I also brought these once for camping, in our trailer. Let me tell you how fantastic they were in the out doors!! Plus i made all fellow campers hungry =) thank you!
Living rural has drawbacks sometimes--no gyros is one of them. This recipe fills that void, and who knew it's SO easy to prepare? Slices up nicely and tastes great. Thank you, Mercy, for creating this great recipe and sharing it with us gyro junkies too.
YUMMY as can be! DEFINATELY keeper this is for me! Like last reviewer, reduced baking time I did do, So thank you from me to you! In one hour's time, was more than ready, TRUE! Used own tsatziki sauce, VERY economical dish too! THANKS!
This was very good. I only used the loaf recipe. Next time I will reduce the baking time. It was a little well done (my fault).
NOTE: THIS REVIEW IS ONLY FOR THE TSATZIKI and it was delicious! I'm a vegetarian but I needed a tsatziki recipe and found this one, it was easy and awsome! I used it as a dressing for tendollarwine's recipe for vegan falafel salad, which I recommend to anyone who enjoys falafel. Thanks for the recipe!
