Cocktail sauce and tahini? Don't be alarmed. The best meals are born out of inventiveness. Tahini (a sesame seed paste) provides a beautiful richness to this sandwich. Combined with cocktail sauce, mayo, and mustard, the tahini transforms into a spicy spread similar to horseradish, yet with a depth and clarity all its own.
Ingredients: Sandwich 1 pita, 5 slices thin-sliced roast beef, 1/4 onion, oil, butter Tahini Spread 5 tsp tahini, 1 tbsp mayo, 1 tbsp cocktail sauce, 1 tsp mustard
Thin slice onion. Slice roast beef into strips. Slice pita in half. Set aside.
Sauté onion in oiled pan over medium heat. While onions are sautéing, combine tahini, mayo, cocktail sauce and mustard in small bowl. Generously spread tahini mixture on inside of pita pockets (reserving a little for the outside of the pita). When onions are brown, add roast beef strips to pan. Cook for 2 min.
Remove roast beef and onions from pan and place in pita pockets. Spread remaining tahini mixture on one side of outside of pitas. Place dollop of butter in pan, place pitas in pan, tahini side down. Cook 1-2 min. Flip pitas. Cook additional minute. Remove from pan.
