Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 6 servings
- 2 lbs beef roast thinly sliced, I've also used loin flap meat and it's so easy to slice and cook!
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tbsp parsley dried
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 cup vegetable broth low sodium
- 1 red onion thinly sliced
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 4 tbsp oil olive, coconut, avocado, etc
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar optional
- 1 tsp olive oil optional
- Pitas or Naan bread or Flat Out pitas.I love the Flat Out pitas the best!
- carrots Sliced
- onions Sliced
- cucumbers Sliced
- Feta or goat cheese. optional, use container to measure
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup cucumber peeled, seeded, and chopped
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 2 tbsp dill fresh
Optional: salt and pepper to taste
Turn Instant Pot on saute and let the pan warn up. When it's warm, add oil to the bottom of the pan and let it get hot.
Add meat, seasoning, garlic, and onion to Instant Pot. Sear and let onions soften for 3-5 minutes
Pour lemon juice and broth over the meat. Give the meat a quick stir, then lock lid into place. Turn the steam valve to sealing. Using the Meat/Stew preset cook the gyro meat for 9 minutes. Let the pressure naturally release for 3 minutes before releasing the remaining pressure using the quick release method.
While the gyro meat is cooking mix together the Tzatziki sauce and slice your vegetable toppings. For added flavor drizzle apple cider vinegar and olive oil over vegetables.
To make your gyro layer the lettuce at the bottom of the pita or naan bread. Then add your meat, toppings, and sauce. This will keep the pita or naan from getting soggy.
