FAQ's

Can I use another kind of meat?

Yes! If you prefer to use steak you could use that instead. I would use a flank steak or skirt steak for this recipe and it would be delicious!

Can I use other veggies?

If you want you can, the ones I chose are more traditional in Greek cooking. But, you could substitute for yellow squash or white onions and it would be very similar.

What can I serve these with?

I love serving this recipe with my Healthy Homemade Tzatziki Sauce. But my Lemon Tahini Hummus would also be a delicious dipping side dish! You could serve this with fresh bread like my Simple French Baguettes or even white rice or quinoa as well.
