1. In a bowl, make sauce by combining first 7 ingredients. *If using Greek-style yogurt, you may have to thin the sauce with milk if it seems too thick. Cover and refrigerate. Stir well before using.
2. In a separate bowl, combine ground beef and seasonings and mix well. Then knead the meat for a few minutes – you want a very dense texture. Form into 2 small blocks.
3. Grill, covered, over medium to high heat for 12-15 minutes or until meat is no longer pink, turning once.
4. Cut blocks into very thin slices.
5. To make sandwiches, tuck grilled beef slices into pita bread and add lettuce, tomato, and onion. Dollop with yogurt sauce.
