Gyro Assembly

  1. Before serving, warm up pita bread. We do this in the microwave in a tortilla warmer which keeps them soft. If you don't have one you can warm them up and keep them in aluminum foil until you're ready to eat.

  2. To assemble Gyros, layer each pita with beef, lettuce, red onion, tomato, and lots of tatziki. Top with fresh oregano and a squeeze of lemon juice, along with some salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
