obviously, this is what you'll need to make the food

Ingredients

- 600 gram beef
- 500 gram rice
- 200 gram feta cheese
- 125 ml bouillon
- 200 ml yoghurt
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 4 tomatoes
- 2 yellow paprika's
- 1 cucumber
- 1 lettuce
- 1 small can of tomato puree
- 2 teaspoons of chili powder
- 1 tablespoon of oregano
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of vinegar
- 1 tablespoon of wine
- 1 or 2 tablespoons of mint (you'll need 1 tablespoon of mint or the tzatziki and if you like you can put 1 tablespoon of mint in the food)
- salt
- pepper

Step 2: Cut the beef

Picture of Cut the beef
take a sharp knife and one piece of meet and cut it in (quite) big bits like in the picture. i think you need to cut them bigger than you would normally do. cut them purpendicular to the strips of lard (i don't really know if i said that right?)

Step 3: Preparing the beef

preheat the oven at 200 C for electric ovens and at 175 C for hot-air ovens. take a large saucepan and mix the vinegar, olive oil, oregano, wine and chili powder. put the meat in it, mix it and then let it soak for about 20 minutes. meanwhile, you can start cutting the paprika's and tomatoes.

I think something got lost in translation.

"my mom learned me how to make it" should be "My mom taught me how to make it"

Not nit-picking, just trying to be constructive.

Thanks for the 'ible.

guys I will disappoint you but i am Greek, i live in greece all my life but i never show this food. also,it's not sadziki, it's jajiki. and you have to try "gyro" it's very delicious.

i know gyro and it's really good. i think that we all mean the same thing when we say jajiki, sadsziki or tzatziki. i guess it's just the language. it's like country names, they are called different in different languages.
you are right man.

You call them "Paprikas". In North America, we call them "Bell Peppers". I like your use of yellow peppers, with the red tomatoes and green lettuce. It's an inexpensive way to colorfully brighten a dish! Nice recipe. I'll have to try this sometime. :)

thanks! i absolutely have no idea how you call them in america, because i live in the netherlands. i just looked up some of the ingedients in my dictionary.

Looks great! How do you use the lettuce, though? Do you mix it with the cucumber sauce like a salad, or does the whole plate get mixed together?
FrozenFire 99 (author)  wildo6 years ago
you just need to cut the lettuce and then mix it with some olives and dressing. i never mix everything together, but you can do so if you want to.
Thanks for the response!
