Steak and Gorgonzola cheese have been friends since the beginning of culinary times, and this wrap sandwich brings them together once again. The creamy, sharp cheese is the perfect balance for a tender, seasoned piece of steak.

How do you make a perfectly grilled steak even better? Just add Gorgonzola cheese. Really, you could stop right there and have a meal worthy of a special occasion. Or you could add a sharp yogurt Dijon sauce and a bevy of fresh vegetables, all wrapped inside of a whole wheat tortilla to make an unforgettable sandwich.

This recipe includes a simple vinaigrette-style marinade and directions to grill the flank steak. However, if you have leftover steak from a previous meal, make it easy on yourself and use it in this sandwich. Flank steak is one of the leanest steaks in the butcher case, which compensates for the rich and creamy cheese. That being said, use any cut of steak that you have on hand. Versatility is the key to easy meals.
