Beef Gyro


I love gyros! i found this recipe on pintrest and had to try it. I’m not a huge fan of pita bread so I made my own. Even the kiddos liked these!

8 oz greek yogurt
1/3 c chopped seeded cucumber
2 TBSP finely chopped onions
1 garlic clove, minced
1 lb lean ground beef
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp mint
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp pepper

4 pita breads
3 c shredded lettuce
1 large tomato, chopped
1 small onion, chopped

In a bowl, combine first 5 ingredients. Cover and refrigerate.

In separate bowl, combine ground beef and seasonings. Mix well. Shape into 4 patties.

Grill, over medium to high heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until meat is no longer pink, turning once.

Cut patties into thin slices. Stuff into pitas. Add lettuce, tomato, and onion.

Serve with yogurt.

Serves 4.
