About this Recipe

With Brava you can easily make classic Greek gyros at home. Thin slices of ribeye are first marinated in a blend of onion and herbs and are then seared off in the Brava to give them the classic taste and texture of roasting the meat on a vertical rotisserie. Feel free to make the tzatziki sauce recipe below or simply use a premade tzatziki.


  • For gyros:
  • 1 medium yellow onion, quartered
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 lb boneless ribeye steak
  • 3 pitas, toasted
  • 1 tomato, thinly sliced
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • For tzatziki:
  • ¼ cup cucumber, grated
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons fresh dill, finely chopped
  • ½ garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
