“This sandwich packs so much flavor, you’ll be satisfied without eating a huge serving. The marinade makes the most of flavorful ingredients, so you won’t even miss the cheese or mayo.” Tammy Kaminski - Stanwood, Washington

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Thai chili sauce

Nutritional Facts

1 filled pita equals 362 calories, 10 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 54 mg cholesterol, 703 mg sodium, 39 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 28 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 3 lean meat, 2-1/2 starch.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Pour 1/4 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the beef. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 19, 2010

My husband and I are on a guided weight reduction program and this recipe was a wonderful treat, especially because we don't often indulge in sandwiches. The sauce is delicious, and we plan to try it with chicken to accommodate family members who don't eat red meat. I'm sure we'll use yhis recipe often.
