We really love gyros & I went into this recipe knowing it was not quite the same as gyros but was anxious to try it. The meat was tasty, cooked it on a broiler pan & it was flavorful & moist, not dry like some reviewers said, but I did use ground beef with a high fat content. I believe my sauce came out as thick as it was supposed to be(had a consistency like Greek yogurt) following the directions exactly, made ahead of time & it sat in the fridge for around 2 hours, think I saw a review said that it had to be used immediately or it goes thin but mine seemed to get even thicker after being in the fridge. However, the sauce must be an acquired taste, we thought it was really weird having the sweet-tasting sauce on there, perhaps because we're so used to eating gyros, & I wish I had prepared a tzatziki sauce instead. I may make the meat again with tzatziki sauce, not exactly like gyros but quite tasty & I like that it uses cheaper ground beef instead of lamb.
