These awesome little pitas stuffed with flavorsome homemade patties are great for sharing with friends. The spiced beef patties with the crisp salad makes them the perfect meal on a warm night.
1 Red Onion, Finely Sliced
1 teaspoon Ginger, crushed
2 teaspoons Ground Corriander
1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
1 Red Chilli, sliced (optional)
1/2 teaspoon Salt
800g Minced Beef
1/2 Cup Breadcrumbs
6 Pitas, halved
2 Tomatoes, Sliced
1/2 Red Onion, sliced
1 Cup Greek Yoghurt
Bunch fresh herbs (optional)
Heat some oil in a large frying pan. Add onion, and cook stirring, for 4-5 mins, until soft. Add ginger, coriander, cumin, chilli, salt and fry for a further minute until aromatic.
Add the mince to the pan and cook stirring for 3-4mins until browned. Remove from the heat and transfer to a large bowl to cool slightly.
Add egg and breadcrumbs to the mince mixture and mix well. Divide the mixture into 6 thick equal patties.
Heat oil in the frying pan, add patties and cook for 4mins on each side, until cooked through. Serve patties inside pita pockets with fresh tomatoes, onion, and any other herbs you like and a generous dollop of yoghurt. Enjoy!
