This was really good! I loved the rosemary and oregano flavors. Also, cutting everything into strips makes it easy to stuff in a pita.

Yum, so simple and tasty! The rub for the beef really brought out the flavor and the yoghurt sauce was delicious. Sweet onions aren't so common here so the only change I made was to use red onion instead and added a little extra garlic to the sauce.
