DIRECTIONS

  • Combine wine, oil, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper.
  • Cut steak across the grain into slices as thin as possible.
  • I use the Chinese trick of putting the meat in the freezer and partially freeze so that it will slice easier.
  • Pour wine marinade over meat strips, refrigerate and marinate for at least 1 hour.
  • Drain strips.
  • Add butter or margarine to saute' pan.
  • Add meat, in two batches, and saute' until brown on both sides.
  • Remove to serving platter and keep warm.
  • Wrap pitas in damp paper towels and microwave until very warm.
  • Open one end of each pita to make pocket.
  • Set out lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and yogurt.
  • Let each person make his own.
  • Tips: If you are lucky enough to have a Middle Eastern food store around,ask them for Lebne (pronounced"leeb nee") and use in place of the drained yogurt.
  • It is much richer and creamier.
  • Or make your own Tzatziki (cucumber, garlic, yogurt dip).
