Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 large red onion, chopped
  • 1 large tomato, thinly sliced
  • 8 pita breads, halved
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well.
Press into an ungreased 9x5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours or until no pink remains and a thermometer reads 160° drain.

If you're not a fan of yogurt, use creamy cucumber or ranch salad dressing in Meat Loaf Gyros.
