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.

1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Remove the butter from the refrigerator to soften. Peel and mince the garlic; smash with the flat side of your knife until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). Pick the mint leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Peel, halve and thinly slice the onion. Remove and discard the husks and silks of the corn; cut each cob into thirds. Cut off and discard the root end of the lettuce; thinly slice the leaves. Core and medium dice the tomato. Find the lines of muscle (or grain) of the steaks; thinly slice against the grain.
