Pita Pockets

Microwaverina's picture
  Lamb fillet 1 Pound, cubed (450 Gram)
  Butter 1⁄2 Ounce (1 Tablespoon / 15 Gram)
  Soy sauce 30 Milliliter (2 Tablespoon)
  Lemon juice 30 Milliliter (2 Tablespoon)
  Honey 15 Milliliter (1 Tablespoon)
  Pita breads 4
  Mayonnaise 30 Milliliter (2 Tablespoon)
  Cucumber slices 12
  Tomato slices 12
  Lettuce heart 1
  Onion 1 Small, cut into rings

Mix together the soy sauce, lemon juice and honey. Add the meat cubes and marinate for at least 2 hours.
Heat a browning dish to maximum, according to the manufacturer's instructions. Remove the meat from the marinade, add butter to the browning dish and stir in the meat. Cook on high for 2 minutes, reduce to medium and cook for a further 9 minutes. Cover and reserve.
Place the pitta (pita) breads on 2 layers of kitchen paper (paper towels) and warm on low for 2 minutes. Remove from the oven, cut in half, open up the 'pocket' and spread the inside with mayonnaise. Shred the lettuce and add a little to each pocket with a few slices of tomato, cucumber and onion. Pile in the lamb. Alternatively, thread meat and vegetables onto wooden kebab sticks and serve with the pitta (pita) bread and rice.
