Slow-Cooker Beef Gyros

This was a pretty good recipe.  And a bit different from our usual meals.  I was a bit nervous about this, because the meat hadn't thawed completely before I put it in the crock pot, and I didn't want to overcook it, but it turned out pretty darn perfect.  Zak was great and made the cucumber yogurt sauce and chopped the onions and tomatoes.  It was all ready when I came home for work and pretty tasty!  We have lots of leftovers!

2 lb. boneless chuck steak
1/4 c. olive oil
2 Tbl. lemon juice
1 Tbl. minced garlic
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Dill Cucumber Yogurt Sauce
1 c. plain Greek yogurt
1 c. diced seedless cucumber
1 Tbl. dill
1/4 tsp. salt

Pita bread
toppings: lettuce, tomatoes, red onions

1.  Place beef in crock pot.
2.  Mix rest of 'meat' ingredients in a small bowl and pour over beef, turning to coat.
3.  Cover and cook on low for 6 - 8 hours (until meat is tender, it was practically falling apart!)
4.  Mix sauce ingredients together, spread on pita bread.
5.  Top pitas with meat and toppings.
