Gluten Free Steak Pita With Chimichurri Sauce

Gluten Free Steak Pita

Although it has feta cheese and a pita, this isn't exactly Greek. Chimmichurri and raw red onion gives the steak and pita an amazing tang and is filling. A great alternative to a sandwich.

Equipment

  • Blender
  • Cast Iron

Ingredients

  • 1 recipe pizza dough
  • 1 – 1 ½ lb top sirloin
  • 1 tbsp Magical Seasoning Mix
  • 1 cup feta cheese
  • ½ red onion sliced
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • spring mix

For The Chimichurri

  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Magical Seasoning Mix
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 4 cups cilantro finely chopped
  • 6 cloves roasted garlic
  • ¼ cup red onion
  • ¼ cup rosemary finely chopped
  • ¼ cup oregano and thyme finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp sugar

Instructions

  • Make the pizza dough. For the second rise, split the dough into 8 equal balls.
  • Dust a cutting board with gluten free flour and roll one of the balls of dough in the flour. Roll each ball into a 8 inch diameter circle.
  • Heat a cast iron pan to medium high and without adding any oil, cook each pita until it puffs up on each side. Set them aside.
  • Add oil to the cast iron and sear the steak on each side. Add some seasoning mix to each side as you turn it.
  • Turn the heat down to medium low and cook until the steak reaches the desired internal temperature.
  • Set the steak aside to rest.
  • Make the chimichurri by adding all ingredients to a blender and blending until smooth.
  • Slice the steak and assemble the pitas with spring mix, steak, feta cheese, red onion, tomatoes, and chimichurri. Enjoy.

Notes

  1. Cut the steak into chunks about 1 inch across and long. This will allow the maximum surface area to be seared.

My passion is supporting those who need to be gluten free. After my family had to transition to eating gluten free I realized how difficult it is. It is more than finding a recipe. It is about how to navigate social situations, deal with isolation, and other things that come along with it. I live in Oregon with my family, cats, and chickens.
