Lamb Kefte Pita Sandwich
When starting this Kefte Pita Sandwich, I remember how we would eat these keftes as young kids, and were a treat. We would even eat them like finger food with tzatziki. In this recipe I am showing you the kefte pita pita from the preparation to the cooking and the finished sandwich. You start by dicing the green and red peppers, shred the onions, finely dice the garlic, squeeze the lemon and add the Greek spices. Primary spices are cumin and mint. Next, add the ground chuck and ground lamb. Little more ground chuck, which is less fatty than the ground beef, and as much lamb. Lamb has Allot of flavor so do not need as much to get that flavor. Mix everything real well with your fist for 7-10 minutes. Then, put in the refrigerator until it is cold. When brought out, patty in egg shape patties and put on the char grill. Make sure you mark twice on one side and twice on the other side as shown on the picture. Do not overcook, make sure patties stay juicy, that will retain the flavor. Put on a fluffy pita bread with sliced tomatoes, red onions and some banana peppers and lettuce if desired. In this sandwich I did not use any of my Famous Gyro Sauce, because it came out of the grill with allot of aroma and very juicy.
