How to make Kebab Pockets


  • 1. In a bowl mix in all the ingredients for the kebabs. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
  • 2. Chop the avocado, tomato, onions and the lettuce. Divide into 8 equal portions, set aside.
  • 3. Heat your griddle to smoking hot. If you do not have a stove-top or electric griddle, you can also use a pan or a skillet.
  • 4. Take the beef out of the fridge and form into flat disks/patties. The recipe should yield about 8 disks.
  • 5. Sear the meat patties on your hot griddle for about 2-3 min each side. Remove and let it rest on a plate. You should not need any oil as the fat released from the beef will be more than enough to lubricate and cook the kebabs.
  • 6. Meanwhile, in a bowl mix in all the ingredients for the sauce, set aside. Once all the kebabs are done, use the griddle to warm/toast up the pocket pita breads.
  • 7. Fill the pita pockets as such, lettuce-> tomato-> avocado-> onions-> feta cheese and then the kebabs (1 each for each pita pocket) and top it with a generous amount of the sauce. I had roughly chopped up my kebab patties. You can serve it either chopped or whole. Enjoy!
