my husband and I make this meal at least once a month- it is SO good! the steak marinates effectively and quickly- the flavors of the dill sauce and feta meld perfectly. we use the dill that comes in the "fresh squeeze" tube instead, which is quite good and keeps WAY longer. be sure to slice the steak very thinly and use a proper cut of meat... MUST TRY!
Greek Steak Pitas with Dill Sauce

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.
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 stuffed pita halves)
