How to Make Gyros

Gyros are a delicious Greek recipe and if you are looking for tasty Superbowl recipes, this is certainly one to consider. There are different ways of making gyros. If you order one in Greece, the meat will probably be shaved off a vertical, rotating spit of meat and it will be served in flat bread with tomatoes and onions and perhaps some hot sauce.

In the following recipe, stir fried steak is used instead of the enormous spit of meat and flour tortillas make a good wrapping for the meat filling. You could use pita bread if you prefer it though. Wrapping the gyros in foil is another good idea because they tend to drip out the end.

Whether you are catering for a buffet, looking for international appetizer recipes or the best hot appetizer recipes, you will fall in love with these delicious Greek gyros. Not only are they simple to make, because you just need to stir fry the ingredients, but they are bursting with flavor. The oregano, garlic, jalapeno, ranch dressing, tomatoes, and other ingredients really complement the meaty flavor of the steak and this recipe is sure to be a hit at your buffet or as one of your Superbowl food recipes.
