Crispy pita with a smoked aroma filled with well-spiced, juicy, ground beef. That's what arais is, made using an old Middle eastern recipe. Arais is usually made on a charcoal grill, simply grilling both sides until the meat is cooked.
Here I have made the recipe that I make in the restaurant I work at but here I sear the pita in a pan and then finish cooking it in the oven.
The version I make is used with ground beef and lamb fat.
If you are a vegetarian you can stuff the pita with a spinach and feta stuffing and it’s simply incredible (but that recipe we will save for another time)
this recipe is filled with flavor, a fun and interesting dinner. I recommend serving it with a spread of salads like tahini, eggplant salad, and Tabbouleh.
