"This is out of the TOH Low-Fat Country Cooking cookbook. This was sent in by Shirley S from Orange, California. She said it's fun to watch the expressions of people when they first taste this. Each bite is both sweet and tart!"

Step 1

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook beef, garlic and onion until beef is browned and onion is tender; drain. Stir in apple, broth, vinegar, tomato sauce, cinnamon and cumin; simmer, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Stir in raisins and almonds if desired. To serve, fill each pita half with beef mixture and top with a dollop of sour cream; sprinkle with chives if desired.
