YEER-oh. YEER-oh. YEER-oh.
Watch this before continuing to read on.
Were you surprised? My junior year of college, a college boyfriend brought me to a Mediterranean-type restaurant where they served “gyros.” I immediately asked him, “What’s a gyro?” and of course, pronounced it naively, “jiy-ro.”
That guy made me feel so embarrassed about mispronouncing gyro (what a jerk he was anyway!), that I knew I’d never make the same mistake twice. The silver lining? The gyro was amazing!
So, guys. It’s YEER-o!
Now, don’t be intimidated by this recipe: it’s very simple and very, very rewarding.
And heck, if you want to save yourself some time, make the meatballs ahead of time and have them on hand to throw these deconstructed gyro bowls together at any time.
Anything with tzatziki sauce is something I want to get into. It’s such a refreshing, tangy dressing that lightens up meat dishes. If you’ve never had a tzatziki sauce before, now’s your chance!
If you can’t find carrots large enough to spiralize, you can swap in some spiralized cucumbers instead.
