Ground Beef Gyros

Mike and I both liked this one. He of course ate his ground beef with mashed potatoes and pinto beans. I ate mine on a low carb tortilla wrap with all of the fresh toppings that you would expect on a gyro. I LOVED it. I surprised myself actually. I was hesitant because of the sauce but it was actually very good.

Ground Beef Gyros

  • 1 carton (8 ounces plain yogurt) I used Greek Organic
  • 1/3 cup chopped, seeded cucumber
  • 2 Tablespoons finally chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Splenda

In a bowl mix all ingredients together. Cover and refrigerate until later.

Filling:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/12 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper

Mix all together and form into 4 patties. Grill over medium-high coals for 10-12 minutes, turning once. Remove from grill and slice.

  • Low carb tortillas
  • shredded lettuce
  • chopped tomato
  • chopped onion (optional)

Place tortilla on a plate, top with lettuce, sliced beef, tomatoes, onions and yogurt sauce. Serves 4.
