Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon each dried oregano, ground thyme, ground cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 pitas
  • Optional toppings: lettuce, sliced tomato, sliced cucumber, sliced red onion, fresh dill and feta cheese

Tzatziki sauce

  • ¾ cup greek yogurt
  • ¾ cup grated cucumber (I like to use an English cucumber)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, finely chopped
  • ½ tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup feta cheese, crumbled

Instructions
 

  • Add the ground beef to a skillet over medium-high heat and cook until browned, about 5-7 minutes. Add the seasonings and ½ cup of water. Simmer over medium heat until the sauce has thickened around the meat, about 5 minutes.
  • While the beef cooks, make the Tzatziki sauce. Start by squeezing the excessive liquid out of the grated cucumber, discarding the liquid. In a small bowl, mix the grated cucumber with the remaining ingredients.
  • To assemble a gyro, layer a pita with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onion, and ground beef, then finish with tzatziki sauce, fresh dill and feta cheese.
