I am continuing my mission this month to create new recipes using yams, sweet potatoes, pumpkin or butternut squash. I created this flat iron steak gyro with a unique spin using yams, onions and green peppers. I used a Creole seasoning on the flat iron steak and cayenne pepper on the yams mixture. Both go well with the yogurt dill sauce!
- 1 package of flat iron steak
- 1 package frozen yams from Trader Joe’s
- 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
- 1 green bell pepper cut into large slices
- 1 to 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
- 2 to 3 tablespoons dried dill
- 2 tablespoons milk
- Creole seasoning for meat rub
- Cayenne pepper to taste
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 package thick flour tortillas
- Coat the flat iron steak with a small amount of olive oil and season the Creole seasoning.
- Place flat iron steak in a baking dish and cook at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
- Slice the meat into long slices and set aside.
- In a large skillet drizzle a small amount of olive oil or grape seed oil in the pan and add the onions, green peppers and yams slices. Then add the cayenne pepper, garlic powder and salt and pepper. Cook at medium heat for approximately 8 to 15 minutes or until completely cooked.
- In a small bowl mix the plain Greek yogurt, milk, dill and salt and pepper.
- Heat the thick tortillas either over the gas stove or in the microwave using a tortilla warmer.
- Place pieces of the flat iron steak onto the tortilla, and then add the yams mixture and the yogurt dill sauce over the top and serve!
