Quick Beef and Salad in Pita Bread Wrap

By GERLIE M. UY



 The Beef-Salad wrapped in Pita and
temporarily secured by toothpick. 
Pita Bread is native to Turkish and Bulgarian dishes
and should have a pocket 
between the round bread.

 Saute 250g of ground beef in 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the salad, chop white onions and tomatoes.
I must add chopped cucumber too 
but I was not able to include the same in my first try.
Also choose the greenest
lettuce available in your local market
and tear the leaves into two big pieces.

 I bought a frozen Pita Bread (Philippine Made) from the grocery.

 Heat the pan. Add the pita bread
and heat each side from 2-3 minutes. 
This one did not rise but the original pita rises
and creates a pocket in between. 
At any rate, this is no problem as we will be making a wrap.

 On top of the pan-heated pita bread,
put some leaves of lettuce. 
Add a spoonful of tomatoes and white onions
and another spoonful of beef.
And since this is quick, I used the prepared
Sweet Chili Sauce to flavor the wrap.
Note: cube cucumbers and sliced eggs may be added too
and any barbecue-flavored sauce
must be perfect to combine with the beef-salad wrap.

 The wraps secured by toothpicks while the hands 
and the camera are still working 
and the eaters are still far from the table. :)

The bitten wrap. This one is with sliced egg...yummy.
