2 tablespoons red wine
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash ground red pepper

  1. Prepare Yogurt Sauce.
  2. Soak 4 bamboo skewers in water about 20 minutes. Combine ground beef, wine, oregano, cumin, salt, red pepper and black pepper in medium bowl; mix lightly. Divide mixture into eight equal portions; form each portion into an oval, each about 4 inches long. Cover; chill 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat grill. Insert skewers lengthwise through centers of ovals, placing 2 on each skewer. Grill over medium heat, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (or, uncovered, 13 to 15 minutes) to medium doneness (160°F), turning once. Fill each pita bread half with equal amounts of lettuce, meat and chopped tomatoes. Serve with Yogurt Sauce.
