Midweek Mealtime - Greek Gyro Bowls

Beef Quinoa Olives Tomatoes DinnerI just realized something as I was sitting down to write my next Midweek Mealtime post.  There's a meal that we have almost every single week that has somehow *not* shown up on this blog.  That is, quite frankly, a travesty.  This meal is easy, fast, and FULL of flavor.

It has beef, veggies, spices, and a high protein carb.  Even the Mister likes it (though, to be transparent, he doesn't use the yogurt or olives).

All that being said, shall we get to it?


  • 2 (10-oz) pkg frozen quinoa and kale blend 
  • 1½ lb lean ground beef (I use at least 90% lean)
  • 1 large (or 2 small) red onion, chopped
  • 1½ tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • ½ tsp dried marjoram
  • ½ tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 container crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup pitted kalamata olives if desired


  1. Cook the quinoa blend in the microwave as directed.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the beef and spices.  Brown beef mixture in skillet until well done.
  3. Divide the quinoa among four bowls.  Top with beef.
  4. Divide tomatoes, feta, yogurt and olives (if using) among the bowls.

Ta-Da!  Simple, fast, and tastes amazing.  Will you try it?  Let me know below!
