Grilled Hawaiian Teriyaki Steak Wraps

Hawaiian Grilled Teriyaki Steak Wraps

Grilled marinated steak, crunchy veggies, grilled pineapple, and a miso Greek yogurt sauce, all wrapped up in the most delicious grilled flour tortilla my taste buds have ever had (thank you very much, Tortilla Land!). We had this last weekend, and as I’m writing this, I find myself wishing we still had some! 

Someone asked the other day, on Twitter I believe, what everyone's favorite grilled food was. I gave it some very brief thought and answered chicken. But now I realize I can’t choose just one. I absolutely adore grilled vegetables--if you’ve never tried grilled leeks, DO IT SOON. Pure heaven! We eat way less meat than we used to, so it’s easy for us to have a big old plate of grilled veggies and a small serving of some meat. If you put a grilled steak in front of me, it makes me a very happy Elle. Simple burger? Yeah! If you add sliced garden tomatoes to that burger, you could probably get me to do almost anything. Almost.

We like to get our vegetables and fruits at a place called Tendercrop Farm in Newbury, MA. They have a huge selection of their own (and other local) fresh produce, as well as their own hormone-free and antibiotic-free chickens, Black Angus beef, and turkeys. It’s good to know that even if we do have some beef or poultry, that it’s great quality. They also make their own sausage and hot dogs! We got some killer Andouille sausage that’s going to star in an upcoming post, so stay tuned for that.

Last week, I received a box of fresh, uncooked flour tortillas from Tortilla Land. When they asked if I’d like to try some, I couldn’t say no. We love flour tortillas. You’re only limited by your imagination as to what to put in them. One of my favorite ways to have them, courtesy of Billy, is just lightly browned in a bit of oil, and then brushed with butter. Have them alongside any meal where you might want bread. So unbelievably simple, but a tasty alternative to bread! The big difference with Tortilla Land’s tortillas, is that they’re uncooked. You simply toss them in a hot pan (or on a hot grill) and after just a few seconds one each side, they’re like you made them at home. With spots of browned goodness that add flavor to each and every bite. Now fill them with something, or have them as a side, and you’ll be totally satisfied.

Tortilla Land’s tortillas are also all natural, have no trans fats, no cholesterol, and no saturated fats. What’s in them? Wheat Flour, Water, Canola Oil, Salt,and Sugar. That’s it. They’re what you would make at home yourself, only you can have them on the table faster. You know how some store bought tortillas can be thick and doughy, and kind of sweet? These are none of those. They’re addictive, especially with the little charred areas that you can get if you let them get that way, which I do.

So! While at the farm last weekend, we picked up some of their steak, which was marinated in their Hawaiian Teriyaki Sauce. It was a perfect match for the tortillas.

makes 4-5 wraps

You can use your favorite marinade here. Ours just happened to be already marinated from Tendercrop Farm. Feel free to use whatever extras you like in the wraps--don't feel limited to what we used in ours. If you can't find the seasoning that I used in the yogurt sauce, you can add more sesame oil, sesame seeds, and ginger to taste.

-about 3/4 to one pound of steak, marinated for at least a couple of hours, but overnight is always better
-fresh pineapple slices
-shredded carrots
-sliced cucumber (I used 2 smallish cukes)
-sliced green onions
-hot sauce (optional)
-Tortilla Land Flour Tortillas

Miso Yogurt Sauce:
makes about 8-9 ounces

7 oz container Greek Yogurt
1/4 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp light Miso
a few drops of sesame oil
1 tsp honey
1/2 tsp Toasted Sesame Ginger Seasoning

Make the yogurt sauce:
Whisk all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set in the fridge until you're ready to serve.

Grill your steaks until done to your liking, or you can also cook them on the stove-again, till done the way you like them. Let the meat rest for at least 5 minutes before you slice it. After the steak is grilled, grill your pineapple slices. They only take a few minutes. Set those aside.

Just before assembling the wraps, place the tortillas on the grill. Let them get toasty on one side, then flip them-watching carefully so you don't burn them. The charred spots just add to the overall flavor, so don't be afraid to let them get some good color! They cook very quickly.

Spread some of the yogurt sauce down the middle of the tortillas, then top with the sliced steak, carrots, cucumber, green onion, and the grilled pineapple. Drizzle with some hot sauce if you like. We like! Roll the tortillas up and serve.

BONUS: The Miso Yogurt Sauce makes a fabulous veggie dip! We dipped all of the leftover cucumber slices in the sauce and truthfully, I could enjoy just that as a snack--anytime! Try it on other sandwiches and wraps, as well.

I’m sure I’ll have more tortilla recipes coming up. When Tortilla Land’s rep, Alexis, told me that I’d probably receive enough tortillas to share with friends, she wasn’t kidding!

And just look a the gorgeous color on those tortillas. Seriously. If you can get your hands on some Tortilla Land Tortillas, you’ve got to try them!

I absolutely love teriyaki and anything with Hawaiian in the title wins in my book! This looks excellent Elle!

These pictures are gorgeous and making my mouth water, but also leaving me sad because we cleaned our grill up this past weekend in preparation for our move. So, I'll just come to your place, ok? Ok. lol I did a product locator for the tortillas and while they don't carry them in CT, they do near where we're moving in CA so yay!! Something else to look forward to after we get there and can't wait to try those.

I can just taste these now, Elle! I have to find these tortillas - seems they sell them at the Costco on the other end of the county from me, but not at the one near my house. But I love flour tortillas for all sorts of things, and would love to get my hands on some of these!

Miso yogurt sauce? Genius!

This looks great!

Perfect timing for Memorial Day! Love the fresh flavors!

May 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMaria

This looks WONDERFUL! I think I'm going to have to break into grilling season with this recipe!

May 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

Again Elle, this is some fantastic recipe with our tortillas! An absolute gem!

And yes, a freshly cooked tortilla with some butter is one thing I never even knew how amazing it tasted (and now my hips are not so happy I know about it! LOL)!

I see a number of your loyal fans here have commented that Tortilla Land is not in their area... and we would love to be! The locator is not always 100% accurate, so please either contact the company directly or ask your favorite local grocery store manager to carry Tortilla Land! We are a product of Circle Foods based out of San Diego...
