4 servings (serving size: 2 filled pita halves)

Serve a Mediterranean-inspired meal in minutes. These steak-filled pita sandwiches are stuffed with bright flavors including Greek seasoning, lemon juice, red onion, and feta cheese. Creamy hummus rounds out this meal.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 3 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag; add steak to bag. Marinate 3 minutes, turning once. Remove steak from bag; discard marinade. Sprinkle steak with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter and oil. Add steak; cook 5 minutes on each side or until desired doneness. Let stand 2 minutes. Cut steak across grain into thin slices.

Step 2

Return pan to heat. Add juice, garlic, and spinach; sauté 1 minute. Remove from heat; add remaining salt.

Step 3

Spoon 2 tablespoons spinach mixture into each pita half. Place 1 tablespoon onion, 3 cucumber slices, and 1 1/2 ounces steak in each pita half; sprinkle 1 tablespoon cheese in each pita half.

Step 4

Creamy hummus: Combine 1 cup rinsed and drained canned chickpeas, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 tablespoon tahini (roasted sesame seed paste), 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper in a food processor; process until well blended. Gradually add 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil; process until smooth. Serve with red pepper slices and baby carrots.

Have never used Greek Seasoning before and I liked the marinade.  But the steak came out a bit too tough for the pitas.  Easy meal, just not something we'll probably have again.

Good and easy weeknight meal. As another reviewer, I also sliced the steak before marinating. Used less than half of the lemon jc. in the spinach, just put enough in for my taste. Good flavors when everything comes together in the pocket;-)

These weren't bad but the flavors didn't really come together for me. Not worth all the effort.

This was a quick weeknight meal. It was tasty and easy to make. I served it with the hummus, which my family didn't like. I would make the pitas again but not the hummus.

The meat was tasty, but the hummus recipe was lacking, and the spinach mixture was not good. If I were to make again I would probably just use raw spinach. I did like the red wine vinegar a lot.

I have made this dish several times and enjoy it each time. Chicken works perfectly as a substitute for steak!

Husband liked it--really a plus! Agree that assembling took longer than preparation. Second time around I used left over London broil for beef. Will make again.
