Greek-Style Flank Steak with Tangy Yogurt Sauce

1 Beef flank steak (12 oz.)

For Marinade:
¼ c. Lemon juice
1 tbsp. Olive oil
2 tsp. Fresh oregano, rinsed, dried and chopped (or ½ tsp. dried)
1 tbsp. Garlic, minced (about 2 to 3 cloves)

For Yogurt Sauce:
1 c. Cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 c. Nonfat plain yogurt
2 tbsp. Lemon juice
1 tbsp. Fresh dill, rinsed, dried and chopped (or 1 tsp. dried)
1 tbsp. Garlic, minced (about 2 to 3 cloves)
½ tsp. Salt

For the marinade, combine lemon juice, olive oil, oregano and garlic in a large bowl. Lay steak in a flat container with sides and pour marinade over the steak. Let the steak marinate for at least 20 minutes or up to 24 hours, turning several times. Combine all the ingredients for the yogurt sauce. Set yogurt sauce aside for at least 15 minutes to blend flavors. (Sauce can be prepared up to 1 hour in advance and refrigerated.) Preheat oven broiler on high temperature, with the rack 3 inches from the heat source. Broil steak for about 10 minutes on each side (to a minimum internal temperature of 145° F). Let cool for 5 minutes before carving. Slice steak thinly across the grain into 12 slices. Serve three slices of the steak with ½ cup yogurt sauce on the side.
