Adding in the spices and chopped onions into the meat mixture in a bowl

Step 3 – Preheat the Blackstone griddle to medium-high heat. Place the meat mixture onto the hot griddle and shape it into long, thin patties. Cook the patties for 6-7 minutes on each side, or until they are well-browned and cooked through. Then Slice patties.

Combining the tzatziki sauce ingredients in a bowl

Step 4 – Stir together the tzatziki sauce ingredients together in a small bowl.

  • Step 5 – Assemble the gyros by placing a few slices of the cooked meat on each pita bread. Top with sliced tomatoes, onions, lettuce, and a generous dollop of our the tzatziki sauce.
  • Step 6 – Fold the pita bread around the fillings and serve the gyros immediately. Enjoy!

Recipe Tips

  • Meat – You may want to use 80/20 percent lean ground beef.
  • Combining Ingredients – Make sure not to overwork the meat when mixing everything together. Gently mix just until combined which allows the meat to stay tender. Over-mixing can make the patties dense and tough.
  • Making the loafs – I don’t recommend making the patties thinner than ½ inch – ¾ inch thickness. Thinner patties may not hold up as well on the grill.
  • Oil Hands – Use lightly oiled hands to gently shape the patties to get smooth edges after mixing everything together. Press in edges gently as you pat. This should help them keep their shape.
  • Rest Meat Mixture – Allow the patties to rest 5-10 minutes in the fridge after shaping to firm up a bit before grilling.
