Directions

--Add the first 6 ingredients into a large bowl and mix well.

--Form into 4 patties.

--Grill, covered, (you can also use a toaster oven or broil these) over medium to high heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until meat is no longer pink, turning once.

--Cut the patties into thin slices and stuff into the pita.

--Add lettuce and tomato.

**You can top this with cucumber yogurt sauce but I'm lactoce free so that's not in this recipe. I just use ketchup and it tastes great :-)**
**Also, if you prefer raw onions you can leave them out of the ground beef and put them on with the lettuce and tomato, I just don't like them raw so I cook them with the beef to add a nice jucy flavor to the meat**
