Typically gyro meat cooks on a rotisserie for hours. For this fast and healthy gyro recipe, flank steak is brushed with seasoned oil and broiled. Not a pickling pro? No problem. You can get all the flavor and crunch in a fraction of the time by marinating thinly sliced vegetables in a hot vinegar mixture for a few minutes. Try them on burgers and other sandwiches too. Look for tzatziki--Greek cucumber-yogurt sauce--near other prepared refrigerated dips like hummus and salsa. Source: EatingWell Magazine, January/February 2017

  • Combine 1 tablespoon oil, coriander, cumin, thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Brush both sides of steak with the seasoned oil. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Toss onion with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a bowl and scatter around the steak.

  • Broil, turning the steak and stirring the onion halfway through, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the steak registers 145 degrees F and the onion is charred, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine water, vinegar, sugar and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add vegetables and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat.

  • Slice the steak and drain the vegetables. Serve in pita bread with the charred onion and tzatziki.
