I bought the wrong kind of Pitas - they were just the right size but weren't the pocket type so I cut them in half. I also cut the recipe in half and as a result the vinegar in the sauce was a bit prominent. I will cut this back a bit next time I make the recipe. The herbs, soy/worchestershire sauce were just right giving a nice mellow flavour to the meat.
