Beef Gyros with Vegetables and Spices Recipe

Beef sirloin steak meat marinated in gyros spices and vegetables turns out tender (if meat is of good quality) and somewhat spicy.

Meat needs to marinate for couple of hours, overnight is good, but it can go longer. I usually prepare meat and sear portion of it right before serving, and I store remaining marinated meat in fridge until I need it next time.

Accompanying beef gyros with Tzatziki sauce is a good choice, spices in meat and sauce blend in well.

  10. Sear portion of gyros meat with vegetables right before you are going to serve it (marinated left over meat can stay uncooked for couple of days in the fridge, just sear it portion by portion before you are planning to eat it). For that scoop meat along with vegetables and marinate to a hot heated frying pan; oil in the marinate should be enough for cooking:
