How to Make My Big Fat Greek Elk
1Make Tzatziki sauce: chop cucumber into small pieces. combine in a bowl with yogurt, garlic clove (minced), dill, and feta. stir and refrigerate until dinner time.
2Brown meat in large saucepan with a bit of olive oil. While browning, once meat is brown yet still very moist (don't drain), put in mint leaves, cumin, and salt and pepper.
3slice eggplant and cover with mixture of olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano. either grill or saute.
4cut pit in half, toast sides.
5Assemble: pit half, cover with tzatziki sauce, eggplant slices, romaine lettuce ground meat, sun dried tomatoes, more tzatziki, and other half of pita. GOOD TO GO!
6eat it as messy as it comes! you'll make a mess but its so worth it! As i stated in my explanation, instead of ground meat you could form patties and make it into a burger! enjoy!
