Greek Steak Pitas with Dill Sauce

This is a great quick dinner.  You can make the dill sauce, or use hummus instead. Both are delicious!

Greek Steak Pitas

1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tsp dried oregano (or even better 1 tsp Herbs de Provence)
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 flank steak
4 (6-inch) pitas, cut in half
Romaine lettuce leaves
Crumbled feta cheese

In a zip-top bag, combine lemon juice, oregano, black pepper, and garlic.  Add flank steak.  Marinate for 10 minutes (set a timer--the meat will begin to taste funny if you leave it too long!).  Grill steak over medium-high heat for 3 minutes per side, then turn heat to medium-low and grill an additional 3 minutes per side.  Let meat rest for 5 minutes, then slice into thin slices across the grain.
Fill each pita with lettuce and meat, dill sauce or hummus, and top with some feta cheese. 

Dill Sauce

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 tsp dried dill
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced

Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl, and refrigerate until ready to use.
