Gyros is a delicious dish from Greece, which can easily replace the Friday taco. It is easy to make and fits most palates.


600 g flat beef of lamb or beef, cut into strips

1 onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

A dab of red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon honey

4 tbsp olive oil

Rosemary and oregano


Everything is mixed together and put cold for a minimum of two hours, but preferably until the next day.



3 dl yoghurt naturett, Greek type

1/2 gherkin, grated coarsely, added a little salt and drained for 15 min. in colander

Mix and season with finely chopped mint, garlic, pepper and lemon. The tzatziki only gets better from being left in the fridge for a few hours.

The meat mixture is fried over a fairly high heat, in a large frying pan. Towards the end of the cooking time, mix it with a little finely chopped parsley. At the same time, heat the pita breads in the oven.

Spread the pita breads inside with tzatziki, fill in the meat mixture, french fries, finely chopped red onion and sliced tomatoes.

The table is covered with a tableware we have brought with us from a ceramicist in Spain.
