Fine. I’m just looking for things to smother in romesco it’s true. But these steak pitas with romesco sauce and whipped herb feta are HIGH in flavor — but actually so easy to throw together.

I could happily stand over the counter dipping thin slices of grilled flank steak in romesco all day. But when I want to be all grown-up and make a meal out of it–one I can even serve to guests–this combo is killer. And STILL macro-friendly.

What You’ll Need for Steak Pitas with Romesco and whipped feta

  • Josephs pitas
  • Whipped herbed feta (see recipe below)
  • Grilled flank steak (like this one, or you can use your own) (this is a great place to use leftover grilled flank steak.)
  • Sliced cucumber
  • Romesco sauce(You can use my favorite easy homemade version here, or Trader Joe’s also has a great store-bought option… and their tzatziki is also delicious!)
  • Pickled onions (PLEASE go make these– they take like five minutes and you will NOT regret having them in your fridge to pile on every sandwich, salad, wrap, and taco for the rest of your life. TRUST ME. AND click here for the pickled onions.

  • Handful of fresh parsley, chopped

How to Make The Steak Pitas

These steak pitas with romesco and whipped herb feta come together super quickly! Get started by preheating your oven to 350. Then you’ll want to lay pitas on a sheet pan and give them a mist of olive oil spray and sprinkle with kosher salt. After that’s done you can add 1 tbsp of the whipped herbed feta yogurt, layer with 50 grams of steak, and top with 1 tbsp romesco sauce. Pop them in the oven to bake for about 3-5 minutes… just until pitas and steak are warm. (You don’t want to RE-COOK leftover steak. There is nothing worse than overcooked steak!)

Remove from your pitas from the oven and top with cucumbers, pickled onions, and fresh herbs. We love mint, cilantro, or basil– whatever we’ve got! Feel free to pile on some arugula or your favorite greens as well!

I get the Joseph’s pitas on Amazon or sometimes at Walmart. They’re a great formula for a filling, super macro-friendly meal when I don’t want a salad but don’t have a big family-style dinner prepped. You can throw anything in a warm, salted pita with some yummy spreads and it’ll be delicious and filling. There really isn’t much that can beat them at 9 carbs per round.  They’re not amazing cold and dry, but heated in a skillet or oven with a little olive oil spray and salt? They’re perfect.

    These are delicious!! My husband loves to eat them too. They are oh so flavorful and filling. Does not feel like diet food one bit. My husband loves the romesco sauce too and puts it on everything throughout the week. I love the whipped feta and use it as a dip with cucumbers. I’m surprised there aren’t more people who have rated this meal. It’s SO good.

    The whipped feta sauce is life-changing! I use this as a dressing or a dip and cannot get enough of it! I love how the macros are so perfect and it is full of flavor!

  3. I can’t stop making the pickled onions. Thank you for providing another way to eat them! I’ll probably give up on the whipped feta because trying to get all the dairy free options makes me tired, but I can whip up a DF tzaiki sauce that will work great. I’m really enjoying getting all of these ideas for easy dinners.
