Steak Gyro Wraps are seasoned grilled steak topped with tzatziki sauce, tomato, onion, lettuce, & feta cheese all wrapped up in a whole wheat wrap. Weight Watchers friendly recipe- 5 SmartPoints!
I am a huge fan of Greek food. The spices, the sauces, the ingredients… it’s a great combination of flavor. When I am in the mood for Greek food but don’t want to spend money eating out, I make it at home! My Steak Gyro Wraps are a healthy twist on the classic gyro. Seasoned steak grilled to perfection topped with homemade creamy tzatziki sauce, tomato, onion, lettuce, and feta cheese all wrapped up in a whole wheat wrap. This is a Weight Watchers friendly recipe and each wrap is 5 SmartPoints.
I never really tried Greek food until about 5 years ago when I worked close to a Greek restaurant back in Austin. When I walked into the place, the smell was heavenly and the food looked unreal. Since I didn’t really know what Greek food was, I asked my friend to suggest an item for me to order; their suggestion was a Gyro. Have you ever had a Gyro before? It’s seasoned, grilled lamb and beef topped with lettuce tomato, creamy tzatziki sauce, and feta cheese wrapped up in a warm pita bread. It’s beyond delicious!
I live in Indianapolis now and there are a ton of delicious Greek/Mediterranean restaurants close to me. Anytime I venture out to one of these restaurants, I always order the gyro. Sometimes a chicken gyro, a falafel gyro, or the classic lamb/beef gyro. I try to save the eating out for the weekend, when I’m using my extra Weight Watchers weekly points. When I’m craving a gyro during the week, I make a healthier version at home.
A while back, I shared my chicken version of a gyro: Healthy Chicken Gyros. Seasoned chicken breast, lettuce, tomato, feta cheese, and Homemade Tzatziki Sauce stuffed into a whole wheat pita pocket. THEY ARE DELICIOUS! I love to make the chicken ahead of time on Sunday then have the meat ready for lunch during the week.
My husband prefers steak over chicken so a few months ago when I was craving a gyro (again) I decided to make steak gyro instead of chicken. What’s great about this recipe is that all the work can be done ahead of time! I like to grill the steak, make the tzatziki sauce, and prep the veggies on Sunday that way I have all the ingredients ready to go during the week to make the wraps for lunch.
For the steak, I use top sirloin, but you can use any kind of steak. What makes the steak so delicious is letting the steak marinade in the spices before you grill.
The marinade is a mixture of garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, dried basil, dried dill, dried parsley, dried rosemary, dried thyme, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, olive oil, red wine vinegar, and lemon juice.
Mix the marinade ingredients together then add the marinade and steak to a ziplock bag. Shake the bag to ensure the steak is coated and marinade in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
While the steak is marinating, make the Homemade Tzatziki Sauce. This sauce is a MUST for these gyros and will stay fresh for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
Heat an indoor grill pan over medium high heat and brush with olive oil. Grill the steak for 10 minutes, flipping half way through.
Let the steak rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Slice the steak into thin strips. If you prefer your steak to be well done, just heat up a small skillet over medium heat then add a few of the steak strips to the skillet. Cook for a few minutes until the steak is cooked to your preference. My husband prefers medium and I prefer well done. I always cook a few of the steak strips in a skillet for myself 🙂 .
Once the steak is sliced, it’s time to assemble the wraps with the steak and all the filling!
Lay a whole wheat tortilla wrap on a flat surface. Next, add a few pieces of romaine lettuce to the tortilla.
Add the grilled steak strips.
Add diced roma tomatoes and sliced red onion.
Top with Homemade Tzatziki Sauce and feta cheese.
Wrap it up and enjoy delicious Greek food made at home!
