Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 5 Pitas (sliced in half lengthwise, then cut into 6 slices (12 slices per whole pita))
  • 1 TBSP Vegetable oil
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 Scallions (white part finely minced and green parts thinly sliced)
  • 1 Dakota Grass Fed Ground Beef - 1 pound
  • 1 Garlic (small clove, finely minced)
  • 1 TBSP Dried Marjoram
  • 1 TBSP Fresh Rosemary (finely minced)
  • 1 TBSP Fresh Mint (finely minced)
  • 1 TBSP Vegetable Oil
  • Salt & Pepper (to taste)
  • 1 CP Grape tomatoes (sliced)

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

 

Place the sliced pitas onto 2 cookie sheets in a single layer, drizzle with the 1 tablespoon oil, then sprinkle generously with salt.  Toss to combine and bake in the oven until crisp, turning once, about 8 minutes.  Remove from the pan and set aside to cool.

 

To make the gyro meat, place all gyro meat ingredients (except the sliced scallion greens) in a bowl, season generously with salt and pepper, and combine well.  Place a medium skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the oil followed by the gyro meat and cook, breaking it up as you go, until it is browned, about 7 minutes.  Cover to keep warm.

 

Combine all of the ingredients for the tzatziki sauce and season generously with salt and pepper. 

 

To assemble, spread the pita chips onto 4 plates.  Top with an even amount of the gyro meat, tzatziki sauce, sliced tomatoes, scallions, and finally with crumbled feta.  Serve immediately.
