Question Gyro Recipe needed

I am in a cooking rut!

I just received "Larousse Gastronimique" for Christmas (yes, I was told I could open it)...and in it, I was just looking, I saw "gyro". My husband loves them and we haven't had any in 2 years. So, I was looking for a recipe for them.

Thanks in advance!

chuckle BEEF GYRO (Sandwich)

BEEF GYRO (Sandwich)

3/4 lb. ground beef3/4 lb. ground lamb2 1/2 tsp. salt2 tsp. dried basil leaves1/2 tsp. dried oregano leaves1/2 tsp. pepper1 cucumber1 3/4 c. sliced onions1/4 c. water1 c. yogurt1/3 c. vinegar1/4 c. chopped parsley2 lg. tomatoes8 round hard rolls (5 inch)
Brown ground beef and lamb along with 1 1/2 tsp. salt, basil, oregano and pepper. Break up meat with a fork as it cooks. Keep warm.

Wash cucumber, score rind with a fork, then slice thinly. In a medium saucepan combine cucumber and onion slices with water. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer 10 minutes or until soft. Drain and place in a bowl.

Add yogurt, vinegar, parsley and remaining 1 tsp. salt. Mix until vegetables are evenly coated. Cut each tomato into 4 thick slices.

To assemble sandwiches: Split each roll halfway through, then cut across top to remove half of top. Press soft insides to make room for filling. Make a layer of meat mixture, cover with a tomato slice, then top with cucumber mixture. To serve, replace top crust halves. Serves 8. Mixture is equally good served in pita bread.
Happy Cooking
