Ready in about: 50 minutes, serves: 8-10


  • 1 beef sirloin tip roast (3 lb)
  • 1 tbsp. ground mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground ginger
  • ½ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • ½ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 ½ tsp. pepper
  • 1 onion, cut into chunks
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • ¼ cup water

Cucumber Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 10 pita pieces of bread, warmed and halved
  • Thinly sliced onion
  • Chopped tomato
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • ½ tsp. salt


  • Combine the onion, garlic, sugar, mustard, ginger, pepper, and cayenne pepper in a blender and process until the onion is finely chopped; cover and process until the onion is finely diced. Process the soy sauce and water until smooth.
  • Grab your Damascus Chef knife and cut into ¼-inch-thick slices with Knife; place the beef in the large-size deep dish. Flip and coat with marinade; cover and chill for 1-2 hours.
  • To make the sauce, mix the cucumber, garlic, and salt in a blender; cover and process until the cucumber is finely chopped.
  • Process vinegar and oil until smooth. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and whisk in the sour cream. Refrigerate until ready to serve. The marinade should be drained and discarded.
  • Cover and grill beef over medium-high heat until the desired degree of doneness is achieved (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; for medium, 140°; and for medium-well, 145°).
  • Fill pita halves halfway with beef. Cucumber sauce, sliced onion, and chopped tomato are served on the side. Any remaining sauce should be refrigerated.
