Greetings from Tink World!
Another Super Bowl has come and gone. If you're like me, you have a few leftover hamburgers. While they are good leftover, warmed in the oven with a little butter/olive oil, there's another great way to use those leftover patties. Turn them into greek gyros.
Making gyros is easy, especially if the meat is already cooked. If you don't want the bread, serve the pitas over an easy greek salad (tomatoes, olives, feta, onions, salt, oregano, olive oil and fresh lemon juice) with a healthy dollop of hummus. The original recipe is below. If you already have the patties, skip to the tzatziki sauce.
Ground Beef Gyros
For the patties:
1 lb. Tink's Ground Beef
4-5 garlic cloves, diced
1/2 onion, finely diced
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp dill weed
1/4 tsp parsley
juice of 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper
dash of Worcestershire sauce
Mix ground beef with all ingredients. Form 8-12 small patties. Add 1 Tbsp butter to a skillet and fry patties. This will only take 4-6 minutes. Cook for 2-3 minutes, flip patties and cover for the remaining 2-3 minutes. This will help the patties to cook throughout.
To serve, warm the pita bread and layer the meat with lettuce, onions, tomatoes and black olives. Squeeze lemon juice on top. You can also serve with a homemade taziki sauce or hummus. These go great with greek potatoes as well.
1 32 oz. container greek yogurt
juice of one lemon
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 english cucumber, peeled and grated
3 Tbsp dill, fresh or dried
1 Tbsp salt
1 Tbsp pepper
Whisk ingredients together until smooth. The longer the sauce sits, the better. So, make ahead if you can.
