This was just OK for me/us. Made this for my bf and I last night. We were craving gyros and didn't feel like leaving the house for them! I think my bf liked these more than I did (but I am picky sometimes...). I don't think they tasted anything like gyros (well, maybe a little...), but serving them on warm pita bread with tzatziki sauce, red onion, cucumber and tomato made them "seem" like the real thing. I couldn't find savory (thought I once had a bottle... I cleaned my spice drawer before Thanksgiving and think I might have tossed the 1+ year old bottle then!), so I subbed an equal amount of dried thyme ( my bf read on the Internet that thyme is the closest substitute for savory). I also added about a 1/2 t of dried oregano per another reviewer's suggestion. For the lean beef, I used sirloin, and, of course the lamb! It's too cold to grill outside, so I just broiled all patties for 5 minutes on one side and 3 on the other (and I had more like 6 patties, not 4). I sliced the meat "patties" into strips, added tzatziki sauce I by Serena Liew and all the fixins' to make gyro sandwiches. Served with a side of seasoned waffle fries this was a decent "homemade" substitute for the meal I usually get at our local Greek restaurant. For the amount of effort involved, I think I'll just go get the authentic stuff up the street next time. Thanks for sharing!
