Gyros are pita bread sandwiches filled with meat, lettuce, tomatoes and the yogurt sauce tzatziki. They were traditionally made with compressed meat – ground beef or lamb mixed with spices and packed onto a spit that rotates in front of a fire until the meat is cooked. Today, many gyros are made with strips of marinated beef.
