Mediterranean Steak Pita Wraps with Mint Yogurt Sauce adds protein and flavor to your lunch or BBQ. The steak is marinated in yogurt and grilled, wrapped in a pita with a lemon hummus spread, mint yogurt sauce, diced tomatoes and fresh parsley.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. flank steak
  • 2 large pita breads {or 4 small pitas}
  • 1/4 cup lemon hummus
  • 1/2 cup fresh tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, stems removed, leaves chopped
  • For the yogurt marinade:
  • 1 cup plain yogurt, low fat
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 Tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • For the mint yogurt dressing:
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt, low fat
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • 1. Put the flank steak on a large platter and season each side with a pinch of salt and cracked pepper.
  • 2. In a large Ziploc bag, put the marinade ingredients: 1 cup plain yogurt, honey, mint and olive oil. Place the flank steak in the Ziploc bag and seal tight. Shake the bag so that the steak is covered with the marinade. Refrigerate overnight, if possible, or at least 2 hours.
  • 3. When you are ready to make your pitas, preheat the grill for 5 minutes. Then turn the heat to medium and place the steak on the grill, close the grill and let cook for 10 minutes.
  • 4. Using tongs flip the steak and let cook for another 5-10 minutes, or until your steak reaches the desired temperature in relation to how you like your steak cooked.
  • 5. While the steak cooks lay your 2 pitas on a large cutting board or platter. Spread the lemon hummus on one side of each pita and set aside.
  • 6. Once the steak is done cooking, remove from the grill and cut into strips {always cut diagonally, against the grain, to make your steak tender.}.
  • 7. Lay half of the steak on top of the lemon hummus on each pita. Drizzle the mint yogurt dressing over the steak and garnish with fresh tomatoes and parsley. Garnish with hot sauce if you would like.
