Lebanese Pita Pockets

Hubby's mom submitted this recipe for his high school's cookbook. It was a favorite of his family growing up, and now it's a favorite of ours.

3 lbs ground beef
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 lg onion, chopped
1 Tbsp dried mint leaves
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
pita breads, cut into halves
chopped lettuce
chopped tomato
plain yogurt or bleu cheese dressing

Brown beef and onion; drain well. Add garlic, cinnamon, mint, lemon juice, cumin, and salt. Simmer, covered for 45 min to develop flavors. A couple Tbsp of water may be added if mixture gets dry. Serve meat in pita breads. Top with lettuce, tomato, and yogurt or bleu cheese dressing.
