Lamb or Beef Kebab Pitas With Tzatziki

Because of the use of ground meat, this is what we call a kebab here. Delicious! They can be oven-roasted, but I highly recommend you do these on the bbq.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, knead together all the kebab ingredients. Form into sausages of about 4-5 inches in length. Cover and leave in the fridge for about an hour.
  2. Prepare the Tzatziki: In a bowl, whisk together all the ingredients. Taste, and adjust seasoning. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F (this is also great on the bbq).
  4. Grill the kebabs until brown and crusty on all sides, and cooked through, about 12-14 minutes.
  5. Get some grilled pita breads.
  6. Place 1 or 2 kebabs inside each pita and add some slices of tomato, onion, some tzatziki, and a generous sprinkling of parlsey.
  7. Roll up as tightly as you can without mushing up your sandwich, and wrap a piece of aluminum foil around bottom to catch any drips.
  8. Enjoy one of the best sandwiches you've ever had.

This was excellent! I loved the blend of spices. The oil in the tzatziki seemed a bit overpowering, but it may have been the brand I was using. I served it with Summery Garbanzo Bean Salad (Vegan Friendly) on the side. The sandwich reminded me of a taco in how it was put together. For ZWT9.

This was good! My grill is on the fritz, so I browned all sides first, then popped hem in the oven for twenty minutes. Perfectly cooked. I didn't much care for the sweet spices in it, the cinnamon and allspice,that's the only reason I gave it four stars. I would make these again, omitting those spices.Also, I felt the olive oil in the sauce was an unnecessary addition. Thanks for sharing, made for ZWT9

This was so yummy! We went the ground beef way because I am not a fan of Lamb; recipe made as written. The tzatziki sauce was like a slice of heaven. My DH polished it off by using it as a dipping sauce with the pita bread. I said this should go in the rotation of dinners and DH said YES! Made for ZWT9. Thanks Evelyn/'s a keeper!
