Crock Pot Tuesday: Gyro Beef Brisket Sandwich with Lemon-Feta Tzatziki

Yet another fabulous slow cooker recipe adapted from my Cuisine magazine:

Gyro Beef Brisket Sandwich with Lemon-Feta Tzatziki

2 Tbs olive oil
3 lb beef brisket, trimmed- coated with 1 tsp each: kosher salt, dried oregano, and black pepper
1 c. beef broth
1 large onion, sliced

1 c. plain yogurt
1 c. crumbled Feta cheese
1 c. peeled, chopped cucumber
4 scallions, chopped
minced zest of one lemon
2 Tbs fresh lemon juice
1 Tbs olive oil
1 Tbs minced fresh oregano
salt and pepper to taste

Heat 2 Tbs. oil in skillet, add brisket and sear 5 minutes per side. Transfer meat to 4-6qt slow cooker. Deglaze skillet with broth and add that plus onions to the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high heat setting for 4-5 hrs or low heat setting for 8-9 hrs. Remove meat and onion to a plate and shred with two forks (I added about 1/4c. broth back to the meat to keep moist). Puree all ingredients for Tzatziki in a food processor. Season to taste. 

To serve: Divide meat and onion among flatbread rounds (I used basic tortillas). Top each with shredded romaine, diced tomatoes, and tzatziki sauce. Yummmm.

Sorry no pics, it was eaten faster than I could break out the camera!
