GREEK STEAK PITAS WITH CARAMELIZED ONIONS AND MUSHROOMS



 A local fast-food pita restaurant inspired me to make my own Greek-style sandwiches at home. Add olives if you like.

I kid you not! Every time I ask my husband what he wants for dinner he always says Greek Steak pitas. I could probably get away with making this meal 3 or 4 times a week. If you love steak, you’ve got to give this one a try.

I’ve been enjoying Greek flavors lately and was craving an easy and healthy yet tasty dinner. I marinated some flank steak, made a cucumber tzatziki sauce and made marinated red onion. I threw it all together in a pita with some lettuce, tomatoes and feta cheese. I served it with hummus and fresh vegetables for a very delicious dinner that we all really enjoyed.

Grilled flank steak pita wraps are the perfect summer dinner recipe! They are loaded with fresh veggies and topped with a homemade Greek yogurt sauce! They are a must-make for a quick weeknight meal or a weekend picnic/dinner party!

Good morning, Belle of the Kitchen readers! I hope you are all having a wonderful summer! My name is Justine and I am the blogger over at Cooking and Beer, where I pair my favorite dishes with the best craft beer I can get my hands on. I was super excited when Ashlyn asked me to do a guest post for her. Her recipes are constantly making me hungry, so I obviously jumped at the chance to contribute!

I don’t know about you guys, but I have basically been obsessed with grilling lately. You name it, I have probably grilled it. From sweet potatoes to chicken and eggplant to pork chops, I just can’t get enough of standing next to a hot grill. These grilled flank steak pita wraps are one of my latest obsessions, and the reasons go above and beyond the grilled flank steak!
