Beef Patties For Pita



    • 1 pound ground beef
    • 1 cup diced onion (1/2 inch)
    • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
    • ½ cup chopped tomato
    • 1 tablespoon curry powder
    • 1 tablespoon turmeric
    • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
    • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
    • 1 tablespoon sugar

    In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients and mix well. Then form into 2 inch round patties and place on a baking dish with at least ½ inch sides and bake in a pre-heated oven 350 for 7 minutes.

    For the pita fixings:

    • 1 package 6 inch pita
    • 1 small red onion sliced thin
    • 4 plum tomato chopped
    • 1 head romaine heart sliced thin
    • ½ cup sour cream mixed with 1 teaspoon lemon juice

    Cut the top of the pita about 1 inch down and open the pocket. Place a little shredded lettuce in at the bottom. Then put two hot patties in next and add some chopped tomato, sour cream, and chopped tomato. Top with a little more lettuce and lunch is served.
