Preheat your oven to 425°F (to toast pitas). Start prep when oven comes up to temp! In Step 1, adding the minced garlic to the lemon juice before making your DIY toum sauce will help mellow the pungent flavour of garlic!

Wash and dry all produce.* Mince or grate the garlic. Juice half the lemon. Cut the remaining lemon into wedges. Finely chop the parsley. Cut the tomatoes into 1/4-inch cubes. Cut the cucumbers into 1/4-inch cubes. In a small bowl, stir together 1/4 tsp minced garlic and 2 tsp lemon juice. Set aside.

Pat the beef dry with paper towels and cut strips into 1-inch pieces. In a large bowl, toss together the beef, onions, Turkish spice blend, remaining garlic and 1 tbsp oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside. In another large bowl, add the tomatoes, parsley, cucumber, 1 tbsp oil and 1/2 tbsp lemon juice. Stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
