Mediterranean Steak Pita Wraps with Mint Yogurt Sauce adds protein and flavor to your lunch or Memorial Day 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.
It has been five months since we moved to the Cleveland/Akron, Ohio area and we have settled in nicely. Since my extended family has always lived in the Cleveland/Akron area, and Mike and I got married here, I was very familiar with the area. I will admit that one thing I was very sad to leave in Chicago was the food scene.
Chicago has so many great restaurants, farmers markets and really it is just a foodie heaven. Luckily I have been pleasantly surprised to find a great food scene in Cleveland. You might be thinking Cleveland, a food scene? But there really are a lot of great things going on from farming to local CSA’s to farmers markets and great restaurants.
One thing I have learned from my short time living in Ohio is there are an abundance of farms, and people/organizations supporting them. I love this about Ohio. Today I am excited to be partnering with one of these important councils in Ohio- the Ohio Beef Council ;- to bring you these Mediterranean Steak Pita Wraps with Mint Yogurt Sauce which are perfect for lunch, or your Memorial Day BBQ. We like to eat these for lunch during the summer or you could double or triple this recipe for your Memorial Day crowd.
Did you know that May is Ohio Beef Month?
The Ohio Beef Council is partnering with the National Beef Council to bring you the 30-Day Protein Challenge, which is a challenge to add protein to three meals a day for 30 days. There are 17,000 beef farming families in Ohio, who are committed to providing excellent care of their animals, protecting the environment for future generations and to producing safe, healthy beef. Ohioans spend $4.1 billion each year on beef, which is a healthy, high-quality protein choice. A 3-ounce serving of beef provides more than 10 essential nutrients and half the daily recommended value of protein for less than 150 calories.You can meet the Ohio beef farmers who may live near you at www.OhioBeef.org.
One of my favorite ways to eat pita wraps is with steak. I love how juicy and flavorful the steak is alongside sauces like this mint yogurt sauce or a good tahini sauce. For this recipe I marinated the steak overnight in a yogurt marinade.
Yogurt marinades happen to be one of my favorite things to use during the grilling season for my chicken and steak. The yogurt marinade helps keep the meat tender and adds flavor.
To put this wrap together you will use my Lemon Hummus recipe from Friday. I also like to drizzle the yogurt sauce on the finished pita wrap and a little hot sauce if you are up for it.
