    I made this for dinner tonight and I have to say it was fantastic! Even my 4 year old ate it. We put it in pita pockets w/ thinly sliced red onions, lettuce, feta, the rest of the cucumber and tzatziki sauce. However since others reviewed and said the sauce wasn’t that great, I made a different version and it was good. I still used the greek yogurt, but I used more about 11/2 cups which in the end made a lot, could easily be cut in half, I still have a lot left, and instead of garlic powder I used minced garlic, but I also love garlic. About 1tsp of cumin, salt, pepper which I didn’t see in recipes but I love pepper so I added it. The shredded cucumber and added feta cheese at the end. I’m not sure how much it was, just the brick from the store, maybe 1/2-3/4 cup but that is just a guess. I would recommend though cutting back on the salt since feta is salty, then add more at the end if it needs it. W/ that sauce and this meat, it made a fantastic meal, my hubby asked me to make it again! A good switch up especially in the summer when a good light meal on a hot day is nice! Thank you for the recipes, I love crock pot meals, makes my life so easy.

    We made this recipe, minus the tzatziki we used store bought to save time. I can only speak for the meat. We did a smaller amount of meat, but I didn’t reduce the spices because we weren’t sure if we’d like it. I would say that if we only did 1 lb of meat again, we would reduce the lemon, spices were great. But I know next time we will just do the full 3 lb. Thanks for sharing this recipe. The family has already requested this one again.

    I liked the meat on this recipe but the sauce wasnt spot on. I used a different recipe for the sauce and toned down the fat. Love the videos you ladies make and I agree that it helps to have someone talking on the videos.

    I made this over the week end and I wasn’t impressed. The tzatziki sauce to be honest was not good at all. I followed the directions, but it wasn’t right. I had to go to another website to be able to get a recipe that was good. I so prefer when Jenna and Nicole do it because you can get more from them than just a video that has no speaking, or explaining the steps. I think I will wait to try anything else until the girls come back.

    I agree with Amy. The video was very weak. I look forward to the videos to double check things that may be incorrect on the actual recipe. Case in point-in the new magazine, Crocking Clean, I had to call to verify a can size while I in the middle of making a recipe. Luckily, I believe his name was Bruce, was there, and he literally got the corrected info for me within a minute! This wasn’t the 1st typo I found in one of the cookbooks but at least having a video to go back to, with REAL people talking, I could get the correct info. Please don’t lose touch with your supporters. They are what can make or break you. Most of us like to see you guys do your couple of minutes demonstrating the recipe so we know for sure the best way to make it work right. If we lose that, you just become another flat page to read. I hope that doesn’t happen!

    This site just isn’t the same without Jenna and Nicole. Very disappointing.

    I hope this recipe is good. I’m planning to try it. I’m a little disappointed in the video. I know this site has gotten a lot of negativity thrown at. I hope the fix to this is not taking out the personal touch of the videos.

    Naturally, being Greek, I would not use Italian Seasoning in the recipe, but Greek Seasoning, which is very similar. I will be trying your crock pot version.
