— 1 pound ground chuck
— 4 large, thick pita breads
— 4 garlic cloves, minced
— 1/4 cup ( 1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
— 2 tablespoons olive oil
— 1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced
— 1 small red onion, sliced
— Salt, freshly ground black pepper, to taste
— 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
— Lettuce leaves, for garnish
— 4 tomato slices, for garnish

Directions

1. Divide meat into four portions and form into half-moon-shaped patties to fit on half a pita bread. Use a fork to mash the garlic with butter in small bowl; set aside.
2. Heat olive oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, onion, salt and pepper; cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Keep warm.
3. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for cooking. Spray grill rack with non-stick cooking spray. Cook patties to desired doneness. (Can be done in a covered grill. For medium rare, cook about 4 minutes on one side; turn and cook 4 minutes more.) During the last few minutes of cooking, brush one side of each pita with the garlic butter and place, buttered side down, on the outer edges of the grill to toast lightly.
4. Place a pita, toasted side up, on a serving plate. Place a patty on one half. Top patty with 1 tablespoon feta cheese. Place part of the mushroom mixture on the other half of pita. Repeat to make 4 sandwiches.
