this was nice and easy, and delicious for a quick meal. i added a diced vidalia onion, some fresh rosemary and fresh oregano. chopped beef never tasted so good.

I also added some onion and oregano for a little extra flavor. I served in pitas and topped with the yogurt and a little feta cheese. This made a delicious, quick and easy dinner.
