I add some water to keep the seitan juicy.

It's best to investigate the heath risks of eating seitan first before making this!

Mmm, this sounds delicious. I love Greek food, so I'm definitely gonna pick up the supplies on my next grocery run!

does the seitan you use have spices in it?  i make my own seitan, so i want to know what to put in it.  or greek seasoning would work.

I'm definitely going to try this. Gyros are one of my favorite things to eat, so it is a dream come true to find this recipe. Thanks a million!!

You have absolutely made my day! I became a vegetarian 30 years ago, and the only thing I ever missed from those days was Gyros. No longer! I tried this recipe out, and it is very tasty; surprisingly authentic. I'd not have believed that seitan would fry up so right. A few suggestions: The amount of tzatziki you call for is enough to sink a battleship -- I made 1/4 that amount for three or four people and that was OK. I used a little less olive oil, more salt, and a lot more (real) garlic. I crushed what -- with your amount -- would be 8 cloves. Obviously, I didn't use any garlic salt or powder! I fried the seitan for about 5 minutes with a little olive oil on med-high in a nonstick skillet; I like a bit of crunch here and there. I'd never used Cavender's before, but it's the right thing. I used 8oz of Sweet Earth's "Grand Life" seitan, and could have stood to have used a little more. All in all, this is supremely excellent, and I'm so glad I tried it. Thank you!
