Beef Kebabs In Yogurt Sauce - Kebabs Yiaourtlou

I first enjoyed this dish in Athens and couldn’t believe I had never tasted it before. A warm fresh pita is topped with savory kebabs then bathed in a creamy yogurt sauce. On top of that is a savory tomato sauce with some extra paprika sprinkled on top. This can be served with rice pilaf or mashed potatoes. Be sure to have some extra pita bread on hand for dipping in the delicious sauce.




For the kebabs:

1 kilo ground beef (can be mixed with ground lamb or ground pork)
2 large onions, shredded on a box grater (with liquid)
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tbsp. paprika (plus more for sprinkling)
1/2 tbsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. cumin
salt and black pepper to taste
