If you adore gyros, you will swoon for these easy beef gyro bowls. They are so easy to make and taste just as good (better, even!) than your favorite takeout. Plus, since you control the ingredients you know exactly what is going into your meal. Enjoy!

Hello friends! I am really excited about today’s recipe because of one simple fact:


Like love, love, LOVE them.

But, I rarely get to eat them because almost all gyro meat in restaurants contains gluten (a fact that I didn’t know for the longest time!). Booo. 🙁 

So, I’m beyond thrilled that now I can make my own at home and soothe that Greek craving any time I want. These Beef Gyro Bowls deliver all the flavor you want in a classic gyro but in bowl form. And even better, they are made in your Instant Pot! And you know how I feel about Instant Pot recipes!

These Beef Gyro Bowls are just one of the amazing recipes in my friend Emily Sunwell-Vidaurri’s new cookbook, The Big Book of Instant Pot Recipes.

Remember Emily? She’s a regular face around here. Not only did she used to be one of this site’s favorite recipe contributors, but she’s also the author of a gazillion other real food cookbooks. Oh, and she’s one of my dearest friends too.

Beef Gyro Bowls :: Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free Option // deliciousobsessions.com

One thing I always look for is how adaptable a recipe is for those with food intolerances and sensitivities (like myself). I am happy to report that most of the recipes in this new cookbook are easily adaptable with just a few tweaks in order to make them suitable for almost anyone.

The Big Book of Instant Pot Recipes is a high-quality, paperback that features gorgeous full-color photography for every recipe. Everything was photographed by Amy, Stefanie, Emily, and the super-talented Donna Crous of Eighty20 Nutrition. Donna’s beautiful work is featured throughout the book, as well as on the cover. 

As I’ve mentioned before, I get a lot of cookbooks to review (one of the fun perks of being a food blogger), but not all of them make it on the site. Some cookbooks just don’t pique my interest enough to be one that I’d refer back to over and over again. But this one definitely does. There’s so much variety in it that it will keep me interested (and satiated) for years to come!

Now, I don’t know about you, but should we head on down to the Beef Gyro Bowls? Heck yes! But, before we do, I have something for all of my friends who might be new to the Instant Pot and therefore a tad intimidated. Read on! 

New to the Instant Pot? I’ve Got You Covered!

The Instant Pot was so intimidating at first, but can I just say that it is now by far my favorite kitchen appliance? I may even love it more than my blender! I love that I can throw frozen chunks of meat (like pot roast) in it at the last minute and still have juicy, tender meat for dinner a couple of hours later.

For those of you who are new to the Instant Pot, then I have you covered in this video I did with my friend and former business partner, Orleatha Smith. If you don’t have an Instant Pot yet, you can find them on Amazon here.

We have a local Greek place that we love and it has a bowl similar to this. It’s my take on it and I think it’s pretty close! Now we choose to just make it at home because it’s so simple. KB

  • 2 lb (905 g) flank steak, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1¼ cups (244 g) uncooked long-grain white rice, rinsed
  • 1¼ cups (295 ml) chicken stock
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • Suggested toppings: tzatziki sauce, lettuce, tomato, sliced onion, crumbled feta cheese


  1. Press sauté to preheat the Instant Pot. When the word “hot” appears on the display, add the flank steak, onion, and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the meat is browned.
  2. Add the rice, stock and lemon juice, taking care that the rice is completely submerged in the liquid.
  3. Secure the lid with the steam vent in the sealed position. Press manual and immediately adjust the timer to 9 minutes. Check that the display light is beneath high pressure.
  4. When the timer sounds, quick release the pressure and carefully remove the lid. Serve in bowls and add your desired toppings.


You could easily use a non-dairy yogurt to make a tzatziki sauce. And there is a delicious non-dairy feta by the brand Violife that would work great in this recipe.
