Steak and Hummus Sandwiches

Turkish Tuesday brings us a steak and hummus sandwich. Another very healthy, flavorful and easy recipe. Tabbouleh can make another appearance here also.

Steak and Hummus Sandwiches
makes 4 sandwiches
* 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
* 1/2 cup sliced pickled banana peppers, plus 1/2 cup juice from the jar
* 1/2 cup hummus
* 1 pound grilled flank steak (leftovers from my tangerine beef recipe)
* Sliced tomatoes
* 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
* Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
* 4 pocketless pitas (preferably whole wheat and homemade)
* 8 romaine lettuce leaves, thinly sliced
* Hot sauce, for topping (optional)

1. Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium high. Toss the onion, banana peppers and 1/3 cup of the pickle juice in a bowl. Whisk the hummus with 3 to 4 tablespoons water in another bowl until smooth and pourable.
2. Thinly slice the steak against the grain, then cut crosswise into bite-size pieces. Toss with the remaining 3 tablespoons pickle juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste.
3. Brush the pitas on one side with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill, oiled-side down, until lightly toasted, about 1 minute.
5. Remove the pitas from the grill and top with the steak. Drain the onion and peppers; divide evenly among the pitas. Top with the lettuce and drizzle with the hummus sauce. Top with hot sauce, if desired.
