Steak ‘Em Up Pitas: Rachael Ray

We inherited a grill from our good friend and we have been getting our grill on almost every night for the past 2 weeks.  IT IS FABULOUS!!  This is such a yummy recipe and great for grilling.  It’s something different besides hamburgers/hot dogs.  Roman even loved eating a “pocket sandwich”.
Enjoy summer grilling!!!!!
  • 1/4 cup 2% greek-style yogurt
  • 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp. prepared horseradish, drained (we don’t like horseradish so we opted out of this and it turned out great)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped (instead of a clove of garlic, I just added some garlic salt to the mixture)
  • EVOO, for brushing
  • 2 onions, cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices, rings left intact
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 lbs. filet mignon, cut crosswise into 4 even pieces (we just used a flank steak “for braising” and it worked out great and was cheaper)
  • 4 plain pitas
  • 1 bunch spinach—stemmed, thoroughly washed and dried


  1. Preheat a grill to medium. In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, mayonnaise, horseradish and garlic.
  2. Lightly brush EVOO on the onions. Place them, rings intact, on the grill (if you have a grill topper, use it here). Season with salt and pepper, cover the grill and cook, carefully turning once, until softened and lightly charred, about 5 minutes; transfer to a bowl.
  3. Pat the beef dry and brush with EVOO; season with salt and pepper. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes before thinly slicing crosswise.
  4. Grill the pitas, turning once, until just warmed through but not crisp, about 1 minute. Slice off the top third of each pita and spread the insides with 2 generous tsp. of horseradish sauce, then stuff with the spinach, sliced meat and grilled onions. Finish with a dollop of the remaining sauce and serve immediately.
