Ground Beef Gyros

This week I am focusing on Ground Beef and trying new recipes with it. This is one I made tonight. It was yummy. For those on a low carb diet, you can eliminate the pita...make a base salad of lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, and onions (if you like onions), crumble up the meat on the salad and use the cucumber sauce as dressing. I got this recipe off of
