Ingredients
  • 2 1 inches thick sirloin steak
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 3/4 cup Greek-style yogurt
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 2 sprigs oregano, stems discarded, leaves chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 dashes hot pepper sauce
  • 4 large pitas or other flatbread
  • Toppings, such as thinly sliced cucumber, tomato and red onion; chopped chiles and kalamata olives; shredded romaine lettuce hearts; flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 4 lemon wedges
Directions
  1. Preheat the broiler or a grill to medium. Drizzle the steak with the EVOO; season with salt and pepper. Cook, turning once, for medium-rare, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool slightly, then thinly slice.
  2. While the steak is cooking, using a food processor, puree the feta, yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, cumin, coriander and hot sauce. Season with salt and pepper; transfer to a bowl.
  3. Char the pitas under the broiler or on the grill. Top with the steak and your choice of toppings. Serve with the lemon wedges and yogurt sauce.
