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!
