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.

Mediterranean Steak Pita Wrap with Mint Yogurt Sauce

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.

Mediterranean Steak Pita Wraps with Mint Yogurt Sauce

Yield: 2
Prep Time: 2 hours
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours 15 minutes

Mediterranean Steak Pita Wraps with Mint Yogurt Sauce adds protein and flavor to your lunch or Memorial Day BBQ. Yogurt marinaded steak is grilled and put in a pita wrap 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
  • Hot sauce {optional garnish}

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 ziplock bag put the marinade ingredients: 1 cup plain yogurt, honey, mint and olive oil. Place the flank steak in the ziplock 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 {we do medium rare which is 130-135 F or medium which is 135-140 F}.
  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 {aways 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.

Notes

This recipe makes enough steak for two large pita wraps {what I have pictured} or four small pita wraps {usually the thicker, smaller pita}.
I suggest adding some hot sauce to the finished pita wrap for extra spice!
Instead of the fresh tomato and parsley you could easily throw some tabbouleh on these pita sandwiches if you have it.
