    The beef stew meat was chewy - I don't know why, but it was. The flavor was okay and I had to drain the meat because there was so much juice. The sauce was okay also. I think I'll look for another gyro recipe.

    Not really gyros but still real good in its own way. Tztaki is geat. Leftover meat srambled with eggs and cheese made another supper.

    A bit liquidy for gyros but very tasty. Served the leftovers over rice which was awesome.

    Meat had a very weird texture and was dry I’m going to try and make it on the stove next time.

    I used Cavenders's Greek seasoning to season the meat and it was delish.

    Not bad. The tzatziki sauce was awesome and the beef was tender. I didnt use as much meat so I was able to cook on high for 4hours in my slow cooker. Hubby was ok with the meal but he wanted a sweet donair sauce instead. All in all a decent recipe.

    loved everything about it. it was very easy to make. i like how it shows you how to make your own sauce

    excellent meal. it deserves the 5 stars if you season more than it says. i added 3/4 tsp of cinnamon (very greek), onion powder, and a general greek seasoning. when putting the wrap together i added diced feta and a small amount of red onion. Greek food is bold and this recipe can get there without adding much fat or calories.

    Meat was very tender. Amp up the spice/flavor in both meat and tzatziki. Instead of 2 lbs beef stew meat, I’ve been doing 1 lb beef and 1 lb chicken breast in the crock-pot. Then finish in a cast iron on the stove to get a little char on the meat.

    Needed a little more spice in the meat. The sauce was delicious

    it was decent, the meat lacks the exceptional quality of true gyro

    Turned out good. Used stew meat. Was done at 6 hours on low. Used flat bread instead of pita.

    Pretty good! Family liked it...will need to add a few more seasoning to the meat...but great!

    I followed it exactly but added feta cheese to the tzatziki sauce and it made the sauce better! My husband and I really enjoyed the meal. My 11 year old liked the meat and my 7 year old only liked the bread. That's why I didn't give it 5 stars because it didn't please the whole family and it wasn't out of this world delicious but was good. I'd definitely make again in a pinch or for something different!
