Ground Beef Potluck Pockets

by Laura

These ground beef potluck pockets are another recipe for you that uses pitas.  A homemade version of pitas is something I hope to make soon.  When I do, I will be sure to share it with you.

This is a recipe I have been making for a while and is a family favorite.  Taste of Home magazine is where a found this recipe years ago.  The pockets are filled with a delicious savory beef filling.

Then you drizzle it with a sauce.  You may not like this one if you are not a fan of salty because this recipe is quite salty. So if you are not a fan of salty you may want to adjust the recipe a little.  Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce is where the salty flavor comes.  So if you want it less salty, be sure to use reduced sodium soy sauce. This will be a great recipe for warm weather.  It’s all made on the stove top!  With about 30 minutes, ground beef potluck pockets come together.

Here is what you need to make the
