marinated steak gyro.

ima not greek so… this is as authentic as i could get to making gyro. i marinated the steaks with several seasonings, although some of the spices and herbs i needed were missing. i used: garlic and onion powder, paprika, pepper, cumin, salt and parsley flakes. i also squeezed half the juice of a lemon onto the meat and then drizzled olive oil. i marinated the steaks overnight.


teaspoon salt

teaspoon pepper

teaspoon garlic powder

teaspoon cumin

teaspoon parsley flakes

two teaspoons onion powder

two teaspoons paprika

i made some tzatziki sauce. everyone seems to make this sauce differently. i make mine using: plain yogurt, sour cream, english cucumber (usually diced but someone else’s hands decided to grate them instead, grr), dill, salt, and pepper. delicious.

tzatziki sauce:

half cup yogurt

half cup sour cream

half of cucumber

palm full of dill

teaspoon salt

half teaspoon pepper

for the zucchini fries i just used store-bought plain and seasoned breadcrumbs. sliced the zucchini, soaked them in half and half, threw them in the breadcrumb mix and fried them up. i love these fries, they’re so good.

zucchini fries:

sliced zucchini

half cup of plain breadcrumbs

half cup of seasoned breadcrumbs

(you can use egg wash if you want)

i used whatever veggies i had around for the gyros: lettuce, tomato, red onion, and olives. i do prefer kalamatas but i didn’t have any, canned olives are just fine too. i could’ve made pita bread but i opted out. i gotta take shortcuts sometimes. lastly, some feta cheese, and orzo on the side.

this gyro sammich was really good, i must say, despite lacking some spices and herbs.
