My husband loved this recipe. It's perfect with the cucumber yogurt sauce. We'll definitely be making this again!
So easy to make and quick when everyone is starving and you don't have a clue what to have! DH and I enjoyed them so much in some rolls for lunch!
Delicious and easy--my kind of recipe! Done in 5 minutes per patty on my George Foreman Grill.
This was very good, it tasted just like the kind my favorite street vendor sells. It did make my house smell funny for a few days, though! It was very easy to make, thank goodness, because my fiance asks for it all the time! Thanks for the recipe!
Wow - this was great! I was kind of skeptical, but it really tasted like the real thing - only less greasy. I didn't think the texture would be right, but it was. Delicious!
I made the gyro meat as iinstructed, but made smaller finger-shaped patties (think kafta). I broiled them a little longer because I had the broiler set at a lower temperature. I served the meat on Arabic Pita bread and made Shaye's yogurt recipe with some small changes. I used low fat sour cream instead of yogurt and added a tablespoon of Tahina. DH LOVED this recipe and had seconds, and I loved it as well. Thanks Shaye!!! Update 1-25-09 "OMG I don't know how I forgot about this recipe, but I made it again today and my husband polished off nearly all the meat himself. This time I made it as instructed, I think. I formed the meat into 4 hamburger-like patties, then flipped them over half-way through broiling. When both sides looked beautiful and a little crispy, I allowed them to cool while I sliced up my tomatoes, then sliced up the meat into long thin strips. DH went crazy for this meal. *I never broil food, so is it normal for thick smoke to fill the house or did I do something wrong?
These are pretty good with beef, I'm sure they're even better with lamb. You can't beat the ease or time of this recipe. I put these in wheat pitas and used Gyro Sauce recipe 57747 (with yogurt).
I did it with ground turkey, tasted great.
This was very good for something a little different. My only complaint (and this is probably my fault) is that the meat was a little dry. Next time I'll try not to cook it as long!
