Pita Burgers with
Mint Yogurt Dressing

2 servings  

  • 12 oz extra-lean ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 cup non-fat plain yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
       or lemon juice
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 2 whole wheat pitas
  • 1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced (I remove skin)

Combine the ground sirloin with cumin, coriander, salt and pepper to taste; shape into 2 burgers. Cook on grill or skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes per side (or throw them on the Foreman grill at 350° and cook for 8-10 minutes).

Meanwhile, in a bowl, stir together the yogurt, chopped mint, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper to taste; set aside.

Cut off tops of pita; stuff each with a cooked burger; 1/2 of the cucumber slices and drizzle with the mint-yogurt dressing.
