Yield; 6 sandwiches.

1 pound ground round
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 small apple, peeled and chopped
1/4 cup low-sodium beef broth
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 cup raisins
3 tablespoons sliced almonds, optional
3 pita breads, halved
1/2 cup nonfat sour cream Chopped chives, optional

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook beef, garlic and onion until beef is browned and onion is tender; drain. Stir in apple, broth, vinegar, tomato sauce, cinnamon and cumin; simmer, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Stir in raisins and almonds if desired. To serve, fill each pita half with beef mixture and top with a dollop of sour cream; sprinkle with chives if desired.
