Succulent beef wrapped in pita and drizzled in Tzatziki sauce, these easy Beef Pitas are even better than Greek takeout. Add these to your dinner menu this week!


For the Beef:

  • 1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Greek seasoning (like Cavender’s)
  • 2 pounds beef top sirloin steak (boneless), cut into strips
  • 1 Tablespoom olive oil
  • 1 cup tzatziki sauce
  • 6 pitas


  1. In large resealable bag, mix seasonings and add beef strips. Seal bag and shake.
  2. Heat skillet on medium high with olive oil. Add beef strips and saute for about 10 minutes, until cooked to desired doneness. I prefer a little pink, but cook however you enjoy.
  3. Serve on a pita with sliced tomatoes and tzatziki sauce. Enjoy!


  • Don't overcook the beef. I personally like my sirloin a little bit pink! If you like more well done beef, go for it, just keep a close eye on the sirloin strips as you cook so they don't get tough.
  • Toast or warm the pita for a few minutes in the oven before adding the beef for best taste. I always use store bought pita here but heating the bread makes everything taste so much fresher!
  • Use your favorite toppings! Don't feel limited to just the tomato slices and yogurt sauce I used. Fresh parsley, diced red onion, shredded lettuce and hot sauce are other great ideas for adding to your Beef Pitas.
  • Don't feel like a sandwich? This beef is delicious served in tons of other ways. Try it over a bed of greens for a tasty Greek salad or serve it over rice.
