"This dish is my husband's favorite. He is a picky eater, but he never complains when I make this simple dish. Sauteed pita bread baked with beef sirloin strips and tomato sauce."

My kids really enjoyed this recipe, but I found the pita bread squares became soggy and bland. I might try to add them after I bake the beef. I also found the beef too tomatoey and not spiced enough. If I cook this again I would fry up some onions and mushrooms, then fry up the beef. I would also use a little less tomato sauce.

I loved this recipe. I sauted the pita a little longer than 5 minutes, and it did not get soggy at all.

The pita bread gets soggy and the taste is not good.
