Satisfying Simple Beef Gyros

I’m missing the taste of summer, so here is a great way to use Fajita Beef from long time customer Robin W.

**For the Marinade:**

- 1 pound thinly sliced beef (Fajita, sirloin or flank steak work well)

- 3 tablespoons olive oil

- 3 cloves garlic, minced

- 1 teaspoon dried oregano

- 1 teaspoon ground cumin

- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika

- 1 teaspoon ground coriander

- Salt and pepper to taste

- Juice of 1 lemon


**For Gyro Sauce:**

- 1 cup Greek yogurt

- 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and finely chopped

- 2 cloves garlic, minced

- 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped

- Salt and pepper to taste


**For Serving:**

- Pita bread or flatbreads

- Sliced tomatoes 

- Sliced red onions

- Sliced cucumbers

- Lettuce



1. In a bowl, mix together all the marinade ingredients: olive oil, minced garlic, dried oregano, cumin, smoked paprika, ground coriander, salt, pepper, and lemon juice.

2. Add the thinly sliced beef to the marinade, ensuring it's well-coated. Cover the bowl and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes, or refrigerate for a few hours for enhanced flavor.

3. While the beef is marinating, prepare the gyro sauce. In a separate bowl, mix together Greek yogurt, chopped cucumber, minced garlic, chopped dill, salt, and pepper. This is your tzatziki sauce.

4. Heat a skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat. Cook the marinated beef slices for 3-4 minutes per side or until they reach your desired level of doneness.

5. Warm the pita bread or flatbreads in the oven or on the stovetop.

6. Assemble your gyros by placing a generous amount of the cooked beef onto the warmed pita. Top with sliced tomatoes, red onions, cucumbers, lettuce, and a dollop of gyro sauce.

7. Fold the pita over the filling, creating a gyro wrap.
