Pita Burgers, in the slow cooker

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Last night I came home to a dinner that was ready to enjoy, thanks to my dear husband. He had gotten out one of our favorite cookbooks, Fix-It and Forget-It, New Cookbook and made these delicious Pita Burgers. We have made a number of recipes from this book and not only are they delicious, but they are also easy and call for common ingredients from your pantry. I hope you enjoy these as much as we did.

Easy and delicious ground beef (pita burger) sandwich.
Pita Burgers made easy in your slow cooker.

Fill your pita bread with spinach, add some peppers to the side and enjoy this savory pocket burger. The sauce is wonderful, this is one burger you don't need to dress up with all the "fixings". This is a great recipe when serving a larger group.

Pita Burgers

adapted from: Fix-It and Forget-It, New Cookbook
perfect for the new 9X12 flat slow cookers

2 pounds lean ground beef
1 c dry oatmeal
1 egg
1 medium onion, finely minced  
1 15oz can tomato sauce
2 T brown sugar
1/2 t salt
2 T cider vinegar
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 T soy sauce

Pita Bread
Delightful, easy burger to make in your slow cooker.

Combine the beef, oatmeal, egg and half of the chopped onion. Shape the mixture into 12 burgers.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the remaining ingredients along with the reserved chopped onion.

Dip the burgers in the sauce, and stack them into your slow cooker. Pour any remaining sauce over the burgers in the cooker.

Cover. Cook on low 4-6 hours, or until the burgers are as cooked, as you like them.

Fill your pita pocket with spinach or lettuce of choice, add a burger, then drizzle with some of the sauce.

  1. I would have never thought to make burgers in the slow cooker. What a great way to cook in quantity for a party or to have some for the freezer.

  2. What a great idea, and it looks so good! Hope you are having a great day and thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
