With these Machaca Beef Pitas we took a great base recipe here and made it a little healthier yet equally delicious. These pitas are bursting with a smoky and slightly spicy flavor. Using pitas instead of French bread loaves makes them less bread heavy and really perfect for meal prep because the pita gets less soggy than bread would sitting in the fridge for a couple days. We also use grass fed and finished beef which increase the healthy aspect of the meal and gives you a better quality cut. As always we love our friends at Wholly Cows roast as they are juicy and packed with flavor. You just can’t go wrong. Pair these with your favorite vegetable side or pick one of our recipes to try to round out your meal.
