Our fragrant Gyro Seasoning is a straightforward blend that delivers terrific flavor to a dish. Built on a workhorse base of pungent garlic and sweet onion, this blend is a primer in Mediterranean flavors. It features peppery oregano and delicate, herbaceous marjoram. The floral-and-pine lilt of rosemary combines with the resinous kick and citrusy top notes of black pepper for a strong finish, with just enough salt to hold it together. We blend our Gyro Seasoning in small batches in our facility, to ensure we send out the freshest and most flavorful product possible to our customers.

Gyros are perhaps the most creatively pronounced word in the culinary lexicon; they are at times, even by fans, called “JEE-rohs,” “JAI-rohs,” and “GHEE-rohs.” We’ll settle the debate here; the correct Greek pronunciation is “YEE-rohs.” While grilled meat sliced off a spit is a cooking method from time immemorial, the modern incarnation of gyros were popularized in Greece in the 1920s, when Armenian nationals took refuge there as they fled the genocide inflicted upon them by the Ottoman Empire in the wake of the Turkish-Armenian War. The Armenian ex-pats brought their traditional cooking techniques, including shawarma, or meat roasted on a rotating, vertical spit, to Greece. It was readily adopted into the fabric of Athenian street food. The Greeks called this new sandwich a gyro, from their word gyros, meaning “circle” or “ring”, which reflected the way that the spit turns for even cooking.

 

Tips From Our Kitchen

 

Use this seasoning blend to make your own gyros! Get some pita bread and load it up with Gyros and Tzatziki Sauce. Use Gyro Seasoning in lamb or turkey meatballs. Blend into a turkey burger. Toss over pasta mixed with broccoli rabe and sausage. Stir into rice or couscous and serve under fish. Thinly slice pork and coat with Gyro Seasoning; pan-fry on both sides and top with lemon and pine nuts. Use as the main seasoning in a Greek-style chicken casserole with spinach. Stir into mashed potatoes. Home fries are next-level when you use this blend to finish them. Toss over carrots or parsnips and roast. Thinly slice kohlrabi and toss in this blend; roast or air-fry until you have crispy kohlrabi chips.

Our Gyro Seasoning is blended from onion, garlic, salt, oregano, marjoram, black pepper and rosemary.
