Steak Gyros

Steak gyros | Hard Parade blog
These aren't authentic - or even typical - gyros but they're still incredibly delicious. Thin slices of steak are mixed up with cucumber, tomato, and red onion then slathered in a homemade tzatziki-style sauce. First time around, I used a lavash rather than a pita but I'll be trying that out next time! Since the steak is so thin, this meal cooks up quickly and you'll be devouring it in minutes. 

Steak Gyros
Recipe modified slightly from Cooking Light
Serves: 4 | Serving Size: 1 sandwich | PointsPlus: 8
  • 1lb. flank steak
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup cucumber, sliced
  • 7-oz. plain fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 4 pita pockets (or 4 lavash flatbreads)
  • 1 tomato, cut into 4 thick slices
  • Season the steak with salt, pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and coat with cooking spray. Cook steak on each side for 3 minutes or until desired doneness. Let stand for 5 minutes then cut diagonally into thin slices
  • Combine cucumber slices, salt, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, pepper, and yogurt in a bowl. Set aside
  • Combine onion, dill, olive oil, and lemon juice in a bowl, tossing to coat
  • Divide steak evenly among the pita pockets. Top each half with about 2 tablespoons of the yogurt mixture, 1/4 cup onion mixture, and 1 tomato slice
Here's the gyro shoved into a pita instead of wrapped up in a lavash!
