Reviews for Beef Pitas with Yogurt Sauce
"I thought these had great flavor! I will definitely be making these again."
"My hubs and I had this just last night. I used a red onion instead of a white just for contrast. I used my own dried herbs instead of fresh and they worked out just fine. Just remember that dried measurements are different than fresh measurements. It was very, very good and I know we'll have it again."
"The beef and yogurt sauce are perfect together in a soft pita! My family loved this recipe. I pan fried the steaks whole and sliced them thin after cooking so I could keep them just a bit rare. Thanks trixiejo302 for the salad suggestion. It was a wonderful accompaniment!"
"Yum! Instead of pitas, I used little whole wheat pita sandwich breads cause pitas were not available at my grocery store."
"This is delicious and pairs VERY well with the Greek Vegetable Salad also available on TOH.com. (0="
"The recipe calls for 4t oil, divided, but doesn't say where to put 2 of the teaspoons. I put it in the bag with the meat and it was great. I also added chopped cucumber to the sauce and it was a nice addition."
