2 (8 ounce) containers
cucumbers - peeled, seeded, and diced
olive oil, divided
chopped fresh dill
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 (1 pound)
beef top sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
pita bread rounds
onion, thinly sliced
1 (4 ounce) package
crumbled feta cheese
1 (2.25 ounce) can
sliced ripe olives, drained
this was quick and easy and I would definitely make again
Made it the fist time as written, yep it was way to thin. It took a little thought, but to thicken it:
1) shred the cucumber
2) wrap in paper towels and squeeze the moisture out
3) MIX BY HAND DON'T USE THE BLENDER.
Now you have a great tzatziki ;)
The sauce was too thin, and the beef is bland. Great recipe for people who don't like spices.
This was great. I made a few changes. I used a naan like break, so it was fluffier then the pita bread.
I also, based on other reviews hand chopped the cucumber vs blending it to avoid the tzatziki from having too much liquid.
People who are having trouble with it being watery. Try running the cucumbers through a food processor, blender, or grate really fine on a cheese grader first then put on a terry cloth or a lot of paper towles and ring out the extra mosture form the cucumbers. This will help remove the extra liquid and make the tzatziki thicker.
It was very good, but gonna make it my own way now that I know the basics. Gonna have to double the portions next time too, what I made was gone within 15 minutes
Sauce was very watery... Next time I'll try with only one cucumber and maybe an extra yogurt...
The flavors in this recipe were great, but my tzatziki sauce was very watery! I ended up doubling the amount of yogurt and that helped, but it was still quite thin. I will definitely make this again, but I will have to do some tweaking of measurements to fix the sauce.
