Yield

4 servings (serving size: 2 stuffed pita halves)

A lemon juice marinade quickly penetrates the steak, so a 10-minute soak is enough to flavor the meat. You can substitute crumbled goat or blue cheese in place of the feta.

Ingredients

  • Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup plain fat-free yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Steak:
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (1-pound) flank steak, trimmed
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (6-inch) pitas, cut in half
  • 4 romaine lettuce leaves, halved
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled feta cheese

Spoon 1 tablespoon sauce and 1 1/2 teaspoons cheese into each pita half.
