Gyro Recipe

Last night I made some out.of.this.world Gyros! Boy are these good! I think it is the Z-sauce that really makes it rock.

The ingredients you will need -
    • 2 lbs. sirloin steak (1 inch thick)
    • Olive oil (2 tbsp)
    • Salt & Pepper
    • 1 cup crumbled Feta Cheese
    • Plain Greek Yogurt (6oz)
    • Juice from 1 lemon
    • 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
    • 1/2  cucumber (peeled, seeded, cubed)
    • Italian Seasoning
    • 1 tsp. ground cumin
    • 1 tsp. ground coriander
    • Flatbread
    • Gyro toppings – cucumber, more feta cheese, red onion, tomatoes, romaine lettuce, kalamata olives or whatever you like.
  1. Mix the ingredients for your cucumber gyro sauce in a food processor or blender. Add 1 cup of crumbled feta, yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, cucumber, a few shakes of Italian seasoning, cumin and coriander.  (You can do this ahead of time and refrigerate)

2. Drizzle steak with olive oil and then season with S&P. I also rub minced garlic on it for flavoring. Broil or grill for 10-14 minutes flipping once for medium. I usually cook mine a little longer if I use the broiler.
3. While the steak is cooking get your toppings ready.

4. When the steak is done let it sit for a few minutes before thinly slicing. This is when I pop some french fries in the oven and set the table! Seasoning tip – We love to lightly dust our finished french fries with S&P as well as Everglade’s Seasoning.

5. Through the flatbread under the broiler to quickly warm them up and then SERVE!
