My Big Fat Greek Elk

Becky Hammond


Usually i make this using lamb meat and forming the meat into patties and grilling for greek burgers. However it was cold outside and i had elk-so i made this instead! all i have to say is hallelujah!!

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!
