Easy Steak and Rice Bowls with Yogurt Sauce (Lazy Tzatziki)
If you’re looking for a gluten free gyro style meal, THIS will satisfy you cravings.
This meal is so simple to throw together. The meat is seasoned perfectly, the rice is flavored just right and the yogurt is the cherry on the top. Once you prep your steak and get it in the fridge, you’re smooth sailing with the rice and the sauce. While the rice cooks, you can make the sauce and meat and be done all at the same time.
If you like this you will love my Steak Souvlaki recipe or my Beef Stroganoff or my Garlic Butter Steak Bites.
You can also add some Sriracha hot sauce to the bowl at the end for some heat.

Do you cook the steak first and then marinate it or marinate the the raw steak, and then cook it?
Your instructions aren’t clear.
Hi Raul, i am so sorry about that.. You marinate the steak first and then cook it. I will correct that now and thank you for bringing to my attention!
When buying Greek yogurt… the whole milk or nonfat???
Hi Rosemary, I buy Fage 5% Greek yogurt always.
This recipe sounds Uhmayzin ‼️ I’m not familiar with cooking with red wine, what do you suggest I use..is it a cooking type of wine❓
Hi Connie, any table dry red wine works here. Cabernet will work. I buy cooking red wine at Whole Foods. I don’t drink much and hate to open a whole bottle for one small portion. Thank you btw!!
