I thought this was great! I used ground beef, I've tried cooking with Lamb in the past, and it's a bit too...gamey? I also made Shaye's sauce recipe...YUM! I'm definitely going to make these again.

We love Gyro and it is hard to find in Texas. I have made it three time and it is always gone. I mix it with beef and lamb mainly be cause lamb is hard to find and when I buy lamb I premix it with beef and freeze so it is ready to defrost and cook. Love it

My mom and I made this tonight... we could not believe how easy it was, and how much it tasted like real gyro meat! (We used 1/2 lamb, 1/2 beef -- the butcher had to grind the lamb for us at the store).

This was pretty good. I made as directed except with ground beef, and the patties just kind of crumbled apart. It was more like a Greek burger on pita bread for us. However, the taste was very good and both DH and I enjoyed our dinner and went back for 2nds :) I will try with lamb next time! Thanks for posting!

Very good. The taste is very close to the gyro meat served when eating out! I made using all beef, I couldn't find any lamb where I live :( , but will keep looking as I think it would really make this a 5 star recipe. A keeper for us, served with tsatziki, hummus and pita. Thanks for posting!

Extremely easy to make. I let the meat marinate for about an hour before broiling, and serve it with tzatziki. Thanks so much!

These were wonderful! We ate them like Greek burgers on English muffins (as I didn't have any pita bread).

Simple and flavorful. Instead of serving it with pita, I made homemade whole wheat tortilla chips. In addition to tomatoes, and onions I put out some roasted peppers. It was kind of like a little chip bar, where everyone made their own "gyro chip" with the choice of tzatziki, hummus or both. Super fun. Thank you for inspiring me.
