Greek Marinated Beef Pita Pockets with Tzatziki Sauce and Greek Salad


This was very, very good!!!

Marinade

4 tablespoons olive oil
1-1/2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons dried marjoram
2 teaspoons dried rosemary
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1/2 tablespoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon red wine
salt and pepper to taste

Marinate for at least 2 hours or throughout the day.  Either skewer and grill or saute.  Do not use alot of oil when preparing on the stovetop because the meat will release liquid.


Tzatziki Sauce

(2) 7 oz. containers Greek yogurt
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and grated
1-1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
1-1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1-1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

Lay grated cucumber on a plate lined with paper towel, allow to drain 1 to 2 hours.  Combine the Greek yogurt, cucumber, garlic, parsley, mint, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a bowl.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
