Sliced Steak Gyros


  • 2 pounds 1-inch-thick sirloin steak

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese

  • 3/4 cup Greek-style yogurt

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • 1 clove garlic, grated

  • 2 sprigs oregano, stems discarded, leaves chopped

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander

  • 2 dashes hot pepper sauce

  • 4 large pitas or other flatbread

  • Toppings, such as thinly sliced cucumber, tomato and red onion; chopped chiles and kalamata olives; shredded romaine lettuce hearts; flat leaf parsley leaves

  • 4 lemon wedges


Pre-heat the broiler or a grill to medium. Drizzle the steak with the EVOO; season with salt and pepper. Cook, turning once, for medium-rare, 8-10 minutes. Let cool slightly, then thinly slice.

While the steak is cooking, using a food processor, puree the feta, yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, cumin, coriander and hot sauce. Season with salt and pepper; transfer to a bowl.

Char the pitas under the broiler or on the grill. Top with the steak and your choice of toppings. Serve with the lemon wedges and yogurt sauce.
