    3. Make the Cucumber Yogurt recipe: Mix cucmbers and yogurt in a small bowl; set aside.
    4. TO COOK: Heat the broiler. Divide grnd beef mix into 8 portions. Form each portion into a patty, 3 inches in diameter. Transfer patties to a broiling pan. Broil patties, turning once, till they are browned on both sides, about 6 min.

    6. NOTES : A Subcontinental spin on Gyros, about as easy as hamburgers. You can substitute grnd lamb or possibly chicken for the beef in these meat patties.
    7. Or possibly you can substitute 1-inch cubes of lamb, chicken, fish or possibly beef for the grnd meat patties and use the remaining patty ingredients listed as a marinade for the meat or possibly fish cubes, that are then broiled.
