Recipe for Traditional Greek Gyro

Written by in , , Comments Off on Recipe for Traditional Greek Gyro

Traditional gyros are made a certain way. They usually include traditional gyro meat, which is usually made with pork or lamb, as well as tzatziki, onions, tomatoes, feta cheese, and Greek oregano.

Traditional Greek Gyro Recipe Ingredients:

  • 4 Greek pita bread rounds
  • 1 recipe Greek tzatziki
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • Slices of Gyro meat (eyeball it, but about 4-8 slices per sandwich depending on the size of the pita)
  • Dried Greek Oregano, to garnish

How to Make Traditional Greek Gyros:

Prepare the pita bread and tzatziki according to the recipe instructions. Keep in mind that you can also use store bought pita bread and tzatziki. When it comes to finding good pita bread in the store, it’s worth the extra effort to find traditional pita bead use in gyros.

Place a piece of aluminum foil down on a flat surface. Place a round of pita bread over the foil. Spread tzatziki across the middle of the pita bread. Top with chopped onion, diced tomato and then add the gyro meat. Sprinkle more tzatziki over the top, if desired. Also sprinkle some oregano over all the ingredients.

Roll the gyro sandwich and wrap it in aluminum foil so it can hold the shape. Repeat until you’ve used up all the bread.
