Fresh & Easy Greek Gyros

If you’re looking for a recipe that can literally be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner and is ready in the drop of a hat, this is for you! I made the protein for this recipe in my instant pot, but you could easily use a crockpot as well! You can change up your protein and veggies to tailor it to your liking!



For the Steak (in the Instant pot):

  • 1 lb Steak (I used chuck steak, but use any cut you’d like! Flank is also a great option)
  • 1 Cup Bone Broth
  • 1 Medium Onion, sliced
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1T Oregano
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

For the Tzatziki Sauce:

  • 2 Cups Lowfat Greek Yogurt (I prefer 2% over nonfat for better flavor)
  • 1 Medium Cucumber, diced
  • 2T Dill
  • Juice of 1/2 Lemon
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced

For the Pita Bread:

  • I love Josephs Pita Bread, it’s low calorie and has great taste and texture! Otherwise, any brand will do, or you can sub in a wrap or tortilla! I didn’t have Joseph’s on hand, so I used Seattle’s Brand which is a little higher carb!

For the Toppings (you can get creative here!)

  • Red Onion, thinly sliced
  • Tomato, thinly sliced
  • Cucumber, thinly sliced
  • Feta Cheese
  • Olives
  • Lettuce


For the Steak:

  • Cover your steaks in all the dry seasonings
  • Pour your broth and lay onions in the bottom of your instant pot of crockpot, then lay steaks on top
  • Squeeze lemon over top
  • Set your instant pot to high pressure for 3 minutes if you like a little pink, or 4 if you like no pink. If using a crockpot, cook on low for 4-6 hours.
  • Once cooked, take your meat out, slice it into thin slices and then place back into the broth and let simmer about 10 minutes.

For the Sauce:

  • In a food processor, combine all ingredients until well blended! Easy!

The macros for this recipe depend on the type of steak or protein you use, the brand of pita and the toppings you use! I recommend inputting your ingredients in to create a recipe in MFP for your sauce, then log your pita and log your toppings to get your macros for your recipe!

For mine, for one gyro I used as follows:

  • 1 Seattle’s Pita
  • 4 oz Steak
  • 2T Tzatziki Sauce
  • 50g Tomato
  • 10g Onion
  • 15g Feta
  • Lettuce

*Reminder, the carbs and fats can easily be lower by using a leaner meat and a lower carb pita!
