1 lb. ground beef
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 tablespoons dried oregano
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
4 scallions, trimmed and sliced
1 -2 Tomatoes
1 container pine nuts, toasted
1/2 container feta cheese
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Wheat pitas, halved and warmed in oven

Prepare couscous according to package directions.
Combine ground beef with cumin, oregano, salt and pepper. Form small patties. Heat olive oil over a grill pan or skillet on medium heat. Add the patties and cook about 4 minutes on each side.
Combine fluffed couscous with scallions, tomatoes, feta, pine nuts and lemon juice.
Serve with pita and hummus.

Chad's rating: 8/10 - not a fan of scallions; would like to try with meat all ground vs. patty style.
