Beef Gyros #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

Today the #SundaySupper gang teamed up with to show you that you can have protein rich foods in every meal.  I joined the 30 day Protein Challenge which helps you to get 25 – 30 grams of protein in every meal.  Why protein you wonder?  Protein helps build muscles, it fills you up, it’s low carb and combining protein with healthy fat helps speeds the metabolism.

For my challenge, I was to make a healthy, high protein lunch to help fill you up  until dinner. I decided to make one of my favorite sandwiches, which is Beef Gyros. Gyros is pronounced “Gyear-ose”, with the ‘g’ kind of aspirated. I will admit I pronounce it wrong, but that’s ok because I made a killer sandwich and that is all that counts.

For the beef I used Steak Tips. I marinated the beef for 4 hours in olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, garlic oregano and salt & pepper. I skewered it and grilled it for about 4 minutes per side. The meat was perfectly tender and not tough at all. Nothing worse than having a steak sandwich that is chewy and hard to swallow. You won’t have to worry about that in this recipe.

I served my Gyros with tomatoes and onion and drizzled it with an easy cucumber dressing made with greek yogurt. It’s light and refreshing. This sandwich is also light to, it didn’t feel to heavy and it was perfect for lunch. One thing I forgot in this recipe is feta cheese. I bought it, but it slipped my mind. After eating my Gyro I realized I forgot the cheese. That’s ok, because it was so good I actually didn’t miss it.
