Gyro Burgers with Tahini Sauce

Prep time 20 mins
Cook time 12 mins
Yield Makes 4 servings
You can find tahini paste on the imported food aisle of large supermarkets or in Mediterranean markets.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound extra-lean ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon Greek seasoning
  • 4 pita rounds
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 8 large tomato slices
  • 4 thin red onion slices
  • Tahini Sauce
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese

How to Make It

  1. Combine beef and seasoning. Shape into 4 patties.

  2. Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until beef is no longer pink.

  3. Cut off 2 inches of bread from 1 side of each pita round, forming a pocket. Line each with 1 lettuce leaf, 2 tomato slices, and 1 red onion slice. Add burger. Drizzle each with 2 tablespoons Tahini Sauce, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cheese.
