At the beginning of the year, I wrote out a meal plan for the first two weeks of the year…which means that sometime last week I ran out of meals. I hadn’t had a chance to make my Greek Chicken Wraps with Tzatziki Sauce and Tapenade because Necco had used the last of my chicken to make our favorite chicken nuggets recipe (I can’t complain when the kids cook for me!). But I had all of the other ingredients for the Greek wraps and was frankly in the mood for them.
I decided to try to create a wrap with ground beef – I figured there must be a quick way to duplicate that amazing Gyro meat flavor, even if I didn’t have traditional Gyro meat. I found a recipe for Ground Beef Gyro Meatballs and kind of based my ground beef mixture on that recipe.
What I created was better than I could have ever imagined. After we finished off the first batch of “gyro” meat, I made another batch of it and have been eating this for lunch all week long.
Note about the Tzatziki sauce listed in the recipe below: Although I have a different Tzatziki Sauce recipe, the one that I found on Kalyn’s Kitchen was much more like a dressing and SO delicious. I will be making her Tzatziki Sauce over and over again – it’s perfect for these wraps OR for a delicious Greek salad. But of course, you can always just buy some Tzatziki sauce that’s already made.
15 Minute Gyro-style Greek Wraps
- 1 small onion, cut into chunks
- ½ teaspoon ground cumin
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- Soft flour tortillas
- Pitted kalamata olives
- Feta cheese
- Iceburg lettuce, chopped
- Fresh spinach
- Cucumber, seeded and chopped
- Tzatziki sauce
- Place onion pieces and spices in a small food processor and chop until you’ve got a spicy-oniony paste. (if you don’t have a small food processor, then finely chop the onion and mix with the spices in a small bowl).
- Mix ground beef and onion-spice mixture thoroughly and then brown in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.
- While meat is heating, prepare Tzatziki sauce if needed and get all other wraps fixings ready.
- Fill each flour tortilla with a spoonful or two of the cooked meat and top with desired toppings. Wrap in aluminum foil to make it easier to eat (or if you’re like my kids, eat it like a salad all spread out on a plate!).
