      I wasn't crazy about this. Too much seasoning for us...? I used sirloin instead of lamb.I did everything else the same.I used different cucumber sauce.Thanks for submitting anyway!

      I made a herb mixture based on this recipe and we like it alot. I used ground buffalo (which is very like beef, but lower fat) instead of lamb, for my husband who loves gyros but can't eat cholesterol. I omitted half the sugar of the sauce, because I don't like it too sweet. I would definitely make this recipe again, Thanks
