thinly sliced red onions
MARINADE: Place the chopped onions in a large ceramic bowl and crush with the bottom of a glass until juice is rendered and onions look translucent.
Stir in 2 crushed garlic cloves, ½ cup olive oil, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, oregano, 1 teaspoon black pepper, curry powder, and 1 teaspoon salt. Mix well;
Slice the flank steak (against the grain) You can slice it thinly if you put it in the freezer for about 20 minutes first.
Add the slices and toss to coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
Combine the yogurts, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, ½ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon white pepper, dill, and 1 crushed clove of garlic. Peel the cucumber and slice in ¼ inch slices then cut into cubes. Stir into the yogurt mixture and mix well; cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. (Or at the very least one hour for best flavor).
Day of the party:
Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
Remove the meat from the marinade mixture, brushing off extra onions. Spread the slices on a baking sheet without overlapping, and sprinkle with kosher salt. Broil about 4 minutes on each side or until well browned and crispy.
Heat the tortillas in a non-stick skillet a few minutes per side.
Spoon the sliced onions and tomatoes on each of the tortillas breads.
Divide the cooked meat evenly, top each with a spoonful of shredded lettuce and drizzle with tzatziki sauce. The tortillas can then be folded.
Just think of it like this: the bottom folds up to hold the food in! Now that is held by folding the right and left arms over. It just hugs itself!
Here you have a great tasting and impressive meal like you could find in the street fairs from Berlin to London!
