Instructions

  • While the cucumbers and beef are hydrating, cut the tomatoes, red onion and lettuce for the gyros.

Add the rest of the cucumber sauce ingredients to the bowl and keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
  • Once the beef if tender and soft, drain the juices from the bowl. You can keep these juices for beef broth or just drain down the sink. Season the beef with the Montreal Steak Seasoning. Place in the microwave for 2-3 minutes, or until warm.
  • To make the pitas, spread a generous portion of the cucumber sauce onto each pita. Add some diced beef to the pita. Top with the lettuce, red onion, tomatoes and feta cheese and then serve.
