steak gyros

gyros recipe

I’ll never forget the first time I tried a Gyro, a greek sandwich that’s traditionally made with lamb and topped with onion, tomato and a creamy yogurt sauce, and served in soft pita bread. It was a completely different flavor from any food I’d ever tried. That may have been the moment when my love affair with great food actually began.

I found this quick and easy version through the new Dinner Decider app I’ve been using. It makes all of my dinner decisions for me, all I had to do was put in my food preferences when I first joined, and voila! No more time spent trying to figure out what to make for dinner! I was really excited to try this recipe in particular, given my fondness for Gyros and all things Greek. I did make a few changes to the recipe. For example, I used ribeye steaks instead of flank. Flank steak would be a great choice but when a better cut is on sale I’ll almost always choose it. I marinated the steaks whole and added 2 cloves of garlic and the juice of a lemon to the marinade. Add a quick salad on the side and dinner is served!

    I adore Gyros, but where I live, lamb is very expensive with little variety. I know flank steak can be a bit pricy, but I can always find it on sale. Terrific recipe. I can’t wait to try it myself.

    Gyros are so nice! And something I’ve never actually made – it’s always something I buy. Silly, because they’re totally doable at home. Fun recipe – love using steak in them. Thanks for this.

    Oh my goodness, this looks like the-best-thing-ever! I LOVE gyros, and somehow have never made them at home. That’s about to change!

    Can’t wait to check out the app. It sounds great for when inspiration isn’t striking! When I’m trying to decide what to have for dinner, I should think of Greek dishes more often. Delicious!

    My husband would LOVE this. He’s a huge noodles fan & I bet the wicked noodle just sets off the comfort factor. Yum, yum :)
