Beefy Pita Pockets

Fabulous! My husband (not the primary cook of the family) made these tonight, and they're super. He said they were easy. Beefy is a great way to describe them. I've had steak that wasn't as satisfying as these. Thanks so much!

I have never used Kitchen Bouquet browning sauce. Is this just to add flavour and colour? Can I leave it out and add some spices instead? If so, would this reduce the sodium or potassium numbers? Dietitian comment: Kitchen Bouquet is a browning and seasoning sauce primarily composed of caramel with vegetable flavorings. You can leave it out, but if it is available it's great for adding an extra level of flavor. 1 teaspoon has only 10 mg sodium, 6 mg potassium and 2 mg phosphorus.

It was okay. I think the meat could have used a little extra seasoning or a sauce because it didn't have a ton of flavor. We'll make this again with a few adjustments!

I liked this and gave it four stars. It had good flavor. Unfortunately, the other 5 people in my family didn't like it at all. They gave it 0 stars. That is unfortunately true of all the kidney friendly recipes I have tried. I am going to make this occasionally and freeze the filling. Thanks, Davita.

The meat was so incredibly yummy! I minced the red peppers and it added extra flavor. My husband and I decided this is going in with the favorite recipes.

I already liked red peppers. They turn out so sweet in this recipe. I wasn't eating white bread before my diet change, but I do like the texture of pita bread. It took a bit of experimenting to find things I like.

This is a wonderful dish. My granddaughters are very picky eaters and they loved it except for the red bell peppers. I fixed the Strawberry and Spinach Salad with it. This was the first completely renal diet meal and it was a HUGE success.
