My husband and I love this sandwich. I usually end up making them at least every other week. They are so easy to make.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a quick and easy way to enjoy gyros... Great flavor, healthy ingredients!

Ingredients

1 lb
lean ground beef
1 small
red onion, chopped
1 tsp
greek seasoning
1/2 tsp
pepper
1/2 tsp
salt, divided
1
cucumber, peeled, seeded, and grated
8 oz
container sour cream or plain greek yogurt
1 clove
garlic, minced
1 Tbsp
fresh dill, chopped
6
pita pockets
1
tomato, chopped
4 oz
crumbled feta cheese
lettuce, shredded

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook ground beef, onion, greek seasoning, pepper, and 1/4 tsp. salt in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring often, 7 to 9 minutes or until beef crumbles and is no longer pink; drain well on paper towels.
2
Stir together cucumber, sour cream, dill, garlic and remaining 1/4 tsp. salt. (I often make this ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator, as it allows for the flavors to infuse together.)
3
Once everything is done, it is time to put it together. Spoon beef mixture, tomatoes, lettuce, and feta into the pita pocket, then top with cucumber sauce. Eat and Enjoy! You will be back for more.

I had lap band surgery Oct 2010 and am always looking for things that are healthy tasty and lap band friendly. This was just the ticket. Whole family liked it. I opted out on the pita and ate mine like a salad. The dressing is simple and tasty and when made with fat free plain Greek yogurt is figure friendly.
