  • 2 servings


2/3 cup greek yogurt
1/2 cucumber, grated
1 tsp fresh dill, chopped
1 1/2 tsp olive oil
tsp lemon juice
1 garlic clove
2 pieces (60 g) bazlama bread (use plain naan or pita if you can’t find this)
1 small tomato, sliced horizontally
1/2 red onion, sliced horizontally
x2 5.5 oz (150 g each) beef steaks
salt + pepper


Switch your broiler on (in some European countries this is called a grill – it’s essentially where the heat comes from above down onto the food) and let it warm up for 5 minutes. In a blender, combine the yogurt, oil, the lemon juice, and the garlic. Once they’re well combined, mix the grated cucumber and most of the dill (set aside a little for garnishing) into the mixture by hand – that’s your Tzatiki. Season and broil the steaks – heating each side for upwards of 3 minutes depending on how well done you’d like it to be. Let the steaks sit a little while, then spread the Tzatiki on the breads, place each steak on top of the bread, top with a few slices of tomato and red onion and sprinkle the remaining dill on top. Enjoy!
