  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Thai chili sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 beef flank steak (1 pound)
  • 4 whole pita breads
  • 4 pieces leaf lettuce, torn
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame seeds


  1. In a small bowl, combine the first 8 ingredients. Pour 1/4 cup marinade into a shallow dish; add the beef and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Grill beef, covered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Let stand for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, grill pitas, uncovered, over medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side or until warm. Thinly slice beef across the grain. In a large bowl, toss the beef, lettuce and reserved marinade. Serve in pitas; sprinkle with sesame seeds.
