  • 1 pound beef sirloin, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • ⅓ cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons dry oregano
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 slices pita bread
  • optional toppings: tzatziki sauce, shredded lettuce, and diced tomato


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Stir beef, onion, beef broth, lemon juice, olive oil, oregano, garlic, salt, and pepper together in the steel pot of your pressure cooker.
  2. Lock pressure cooker lid in place and set steam vent to Sealing.
  3. Select Pressure Cook (Manual) and cook for 30 minutes on High pressure.
  4. Once the cooking cycle has completed allow pressure to release naturally for 15 minutes, then set steam vent to Venting to quick-release remaining pressure.
  5. Heap beef mixture into pita bread; top with desired toppings.
Mealthy tip:

Always wondered the proper way to pronounce "gyro?" The correct pronunciation is "YEE-roh" rather than the Americanized sounding "Jai-ro" we often hear. No matter how you say it, a gyro is always delicious!

This was delicious. I added a little more garlic and oregano and the flavor was great. I topped it with tzatziki, tomatoes, and cucumbers. I even cooked some potatoes as a side, using the same seasoning. I will definitely be making this again!

Two teaspoons oregano was not nearly enough. Once I adjusted the seasonings some this turned out great. Definitely good with tzatziki.

So funny I always called these HEE-ROS. Either way, these were really good. Served them up with a side of homemade hummus.

I loved that I could make it in my pressure cooker rather than on the stove or oven. This gyro definitely called for hot sauce, really yummy. I use the homemade tzatziki I found on another recipe on Mealthy. These were really good!

Love these sandwiches, they turned out great. The meat wasn't overcooked and it tasted amazing. The oregano, lemon, and garlic were the perfect flavors. Very good recipe.

I love gyros! I used to always get them on road trips between Vegas and LA at my favorite spot. This recipe comes pretty close to that! The quick cooking time makes it so easy to do. I topped mine with tzatziki and it was incredible.
