Who would think gyros would be a "killer" food

Recommended Posts

There was some sliced slabs of gyros in the frig from my wife's dinner from the evening before.  I finished them off for lunch.  Did not feel well the remainder of the afternoon.  As evening wore on my gut became more and more painful and the cramps were unbelievable.  I looked up gyros and guess what??? The meats are ground up and held together with wheat flour, molded into the large cone around a metal skewer and roasted.  So, I said, just as Scarlet O'Harah said in "Gone with the Wind", "As God is my witness, I will never eat gyros again"....I think she said something like that.

I eat nothing without an ingredient list!   ;) 

also, I would think that not ALL gyro meat is that way.   I make my own, have browsed many recipes and haven't found ones with flour of any sort in them.  maybe it's just restaurant gyro meat?

Yes, it is the rare restaurant which will make it's own gyros with flattened pounded beef and/or lamb stacked one atop another without any filler or binder like wheat flour.  Thanks for your comment.
