Arabian Wraps

I don't really know what to call this, so I made up that name.  The meat and veggies is definitely like the stuff we had in the Middle East, and it is in a pita so the name fits.  But if you think of a better name, please use it!

Arabian Wraps

Ingredients:
1 flank steak
1 T garam masala spice (can buy at Indian or Middle Eastern markets)
1 T garlic, minced
1/4 tsp chili powder
2 bell peppers, cut into 1" chunks
2 medium onions, cut in half and then quartered (so eighths?)
Pita bread or pita wraps (I prefer whole wheat)
Hummus
Plain yogurt or sour cream

Mix together the garam masala, garlic, and chili powder in a small bowl, then rub onto both sides of meat.  Thread cut up peppers and onions onto skewers.  Heat a grill over medium-high heat.  Grill meat and skewers for 6 minutes, rotating half-way.  Remove skewers.  Continue to cook meat over medium-low heat for an additional 6 minutes, rotating half-way.  Let meat sit for 5 minutes, then slice cross-grain and at an angle to create very thin slices.
On a pita or pita wrap, spread a thin layer of hummus.  Add some meat, grilled peppers and onions, and a dollop of sour cream or yogurt.  Wrap and eat!
Serves 6.
