We’re bringing traditional Greek street food right into your kitchen with this recipe for tasty gyros. Our pita wraps are brimming with authentically-spiced steak, seasonal tomato, tzatziki sauce (a cooling, yogurt-based condiment) and more. And we’re using the same spices—along with garlic paste and lemon juice—to season the butter for our corn on the cob, a deliciously summery side. Just let your butter soften enough that you can stir in the seasonings: it’ll melt onto the freshly-boiled corn, lightly coating the sweet kernels with extra, complex flavor.
