Luscious slices of grilled steak make this sandwich served on pita bread a real treat. The flavor of the marinated steak is well-matched to the blue cheese dressing.

Ingredients

2 lb. flank steak
1⁄2 cup orange juice
1⁄2 cup soy sauce
4 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. dried oregano
2 large onions, sliced
Salt and fresh ground pepper
Shredded lettuce
6 pocketless pita breads, warmed
1 cup blue cheese dressing
2 oz. crumbled blue cheese

 

Steps

1. Score flank steak and place in shallow hotel pan. Combine orange juice, soy sauce, 2 tablespoons oil, garlic and oregano; pour over steak. Marinate at least 30 minutes.

2. In saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons oil until hot. Add onions and salt and pepper to taste; cook over medium heat 10 minutes, until tender and slightly caramelized. Keep warm.

3. Remove steak from marinade and place on grill; cook to desired doneness, turning once. Slice on the bias into thin pieces.

4. For service, arrange lettuce on pita breads; top with steak slices, onions, and blue cheese dressing. Sprinkle crumbled blue cheese on top.

Ohio University Director of Culinary Services Rich Neumann was on Wednesday evening awarded NACUFS’ 49th annual Theodore W. Minah Distinguished Service Award, the association’s highest honor.

Neumann’s foodservice career began as an undergraduate at University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point.
