Potluck Pockets

Here is another recipe for you today that uses pitas.  I am hoping to try a homemade version of pitas soon.  When I do I will share.

This is a recipe I have been making for a while and is a family favorite.  I found it years ago in a Taste of Home magazine.  The pockets are filled with a savory beef filling.  Then you drizzle it with a sauce.  The recipe is quite salty so if you are not a fan of salty you may not like this one.  The salty flavor comes from soy sauce and worcestershire sauce.  This will be a great recipe for warm weather,  It’s all made on the stove top!  It also comes together in about 30 minutes.
