OMG Greek {Wrap}

by zesty on September 9, 2011 · 1 comment

Happy Friday and salut to you. I was kind of excited to wake up this morning and start writing this post for you. I made this little sandwich wrap on Wednesday night after work and I have been thinking about it ever since. Remember on Wednesday I posted about the slow cooked braised beef and served it with the roasted cauliflower and sweet potatoes. Well I had two pieces of beef left over for the following day – and this is what I came up with.

I sliced the beef into pieces and warmed it back through in the frying pan but not without kicking it up a notch.  A drizzle of honey, pinch of oregano and a squirt of fresh lemon were the extras that made the pan.  After the beef was finished getting somewhat caramelized on the outside ( thanks honey) and moist and tender on the inside, I removed it from the heat and gasped at it for a few minutes.

Ok, I am ready to continue.  I warmed up a couple of pitas in the oven, grabbed some tzatiki, some feta cheese and baby greens.  The wrap was ready to assemble.  As I starting laying out the wrap I could almost taste the flavor combination and was certain I would need two of these fellas for sure.  Not too often do I say OMG after I take a bite of something but this wrap was a guaranteed 9/10.

Ingredients

  • 2 Leftover Sirloin Steaks slow roasted, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Honey
  • 1/2 Tsp. Oregano
  • Juice of half lemon
  • Tzatiki sauce
  • Pita bread
  • Baby greens
  • Feta cheese

Method

  1. Preheat frying pan and warm beef with a little olive oil.  As it is searing, add the honey, oregano and lemon juice.  Continue cooking for 4-5 minutes over medium heat stirring often.
  2. Grab the pita bread and toss it in the oven to warm it through, maybe 3-4 minutes.
  3. Assemble the wrap – smear some tzatiki sauce, beef, feta cheese and baby greens.
  4. Run to the table and eat
  5. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: In this particular case, I didn’t want the pita bread to get crispy.  To prevent that you can rub a little water on the bread before placing it in the oven.  This will act as a steaming mechanism and keep the bread from getting crunchy.

OK, I am going to head out here and prepare for the day. I hope you have a super friday and a good weekend.  Not sure what is on the go this weekend but I will be back on Monday with something to EAT.  Enjoy the weekend!

Take care

zesty
