THE RECIPE

Homemade Gyros

Skip the take-out with this flavorful Greek sandwich.

Whether you’re looking for a quick lunch or need to satisfy those late-night hunger pangs, gyros are the perfect portable meal. Gyro meat is usually made with lamb or beef, slow-roasted on a turning spit and then shaved off in slices. Since we all don’t have a roasting spit lying around, Rebecca shows us how to make our own in a loaf pan in the oven. Beef and lamb are mixed together with a combination of dried herbs and spices, then baked and ready to be sliced for the pitas. After that? The gyro is your canvas; you can top with feta, olives, onions and tomatoes…the possibilities are endless.
