Easy Ground Beef Gyros


Yum. Yum.
With certainty, this Easy Ground Beef Gyros will appear on our dinner table again.

These were great and soooo easy!
Me and the hubby LOVE us some good gyros.
While these are not authentic greek-made gyros, I couldn't believe how tasty these are!
I mean, they are home-made and ground beef only, but, man, don't let that fool you.
Really, these are that good and easy, especially if you are a fan of gyros like us. :)

I literally swung by the grocery store on the way home from work, arrived home, and had dinner made in 30 minutes-from start to finish.
Not to mention, all ingredients required in this recipe are easy to find.

I really recommend making this-I know I will again!

I did use my own Tzazkiki sauce recipe, just 'cause I already know how we like it our house.

GYRO MEAT

1 lb lean ground beef
4 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced

Our Chosen Pita Bread

1/3 cup cucumber, peeled and chopped

2) Heat oven to 350ºF.
3) In medium bowl, combine ground beef and seasoning ingredients, mixing lightly but thoroughly.
4) Divide beef mixture into 16 equal portions and shape into patties 2 inches in diameter.
5) Place patties on rack in broiler pan.
6) Bake in oven 10 minutes or until no longer pink OR GRILL over medium heat.

P.S. You can serve with Feta Cheese, too, if desired.
