The instructions are for grilling the flank steak. But when the weather isn't great for outdoor cooking, I think this recipe would work just as well with broiling the beef.

Ingredients

1 lb
flank steak
1/2 tsp
salt, divided
1/2 tsp
black pepper, divided
1/2 tsp
garlic powder, divided
cooking spray
1/2 c
cucumber, peeled and shredded
7 oz
container plain reduced-fat greek yogurt

1/3 c
fresh dill, coarsely chopped
1 Tbsp
olive oil
2 Tbsp
fresh lemon juice
4
flatbread gyro pockets (1.5 ounces)
4
tomato slices, halved

Step-By-Step

1Preheat the grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray.
2Sprinkle steak evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder. Place steak on greased grill rack, and grill 10 minutes or until desired degree of doneness, turning after 6 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak diagonally into thin slices.
3Place shredded cucumber in paper towels; gently squeeze to release moisture. Stir cucumber, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder into yogurt.
4Combine onion, dill, oil, and juice in a bowl; toss to coat.
5Divide steak evenly among flatbread pockets; top each with about 2 tablespoons of the yogurt mixture, 1/4 cup onion mixture, and 2 tomato halves.
