1 1/2 pounds London broil (about 3/4-inch thick)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon Greek seasoning
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (8-ounce) container plain nonfat yogurt
1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded, and chopped
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon dried dillweed
6 pita bread rounds
Shredded lettuce
1 large tomato, diced
Garnishes: fresh dill, lemon wedges, cucumber slices


Place beef between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; flatten to 1/2-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin.

Combine garlic and next 3 ingredients in a shallow dish or large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; add beef. Cover or seal, and chill 8 hours. Remove beef from marinade, discarding marinade.

Stir together yogurt and next 3 ingredients. Set aside.

Grill beef, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (300° to 350°) 7 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut into thin slices.

Place beef evenly down center of warm pita rounds. Top with yogurt mixture, lettuce, and tomato; roll up. Garnish, if desired, and serve immediately.
