This is very similar to a Greek Gyro. Mmmmm, so good!
Serving size: 4


  • 1 cup (8 ounces) fat-free plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • PITAS:
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound beef top sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 4 whole gyro-style pitas (6 inches), warmed


  • For sauce, in a small bowl, combine the yogurt, parsley, garlic and salt. Refrigerate until serving.
  • In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the oregano, rosemary, salt and pepper; add beef. Seal bag and toss to coat.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, saute onion in 2 teaspoons oil until golden brown. Remove and keep warm. Saute beef in remaining oil until no longer pink.
