Ingredients

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Thai chili sauce

Nutritional Facts

1 filled pita equals 355 calories, 10 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 54 mg cholesterol, 696 mg sodium, 37 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 2 tablespoons 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.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, grill pitas, uncovered, over medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side or until warm. Thinly slice beef across the grain. In a large bowl, toss the beef, lettuce and reserved marinade. Serve in pitas; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Yield: 2 servings.
