1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon each of dried oregano, ground thyme, ground cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
Optional toppings: lettuce, sliced tomato, sliced cucumber, sliced red onion, fresh dill, and feta cheese
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
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 excess liquid out of the grated cucumber, and 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
