Ground beef gyros

I absolutely love gyros and this ground beef version is very simple to make and very delicious to eat.


1 lb ground beef
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp pepper

8 oz plain yogurt
1/3 cucumber finely chopped
1 garlic clove minced
Salt to taste

4 pitas or any other middle eastern bread

Mix all the meat ingredients together. Form little meat loafs (3 in. by 4 in.). I usually get around 4 small loafs from one pound of meat. Bake them in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes or until done. While the meat is baking mix all the yogurt ingredients together and adjust taste to you liking. Take the meat out of the oven and let it cool slightly. Slice the loafs, put the slices inside pitas, put  yogurt sauce on and top, along with lettuce, tomato and onion.
Finger-licking goodness, I tell you!
