The Background Story
This is a simple recipe mostly because it is so incredibly flexible that anything you do is right (so long as you like the way it tastes). It can be a bit of work to prepare but it's not hard work and there's pretty much nothing you can do wrong ... because anything you like will work well.
Loose meat is essentially a ground meat sandwich where the meat is not formed. Rather, it is just "loose". What differentiates this from Sloppy Joes is that the Sloppy Joe has a sauce while the loose Meat Sandwich, while it should be nice and juicy and moist, is not made with a sauce. This being the case, a nice home made pita pocket becomes the perfect bread choice to enjoy this kind of sandwich.
While we may not always make it exactly the way it's done here, this is a nice preparation. It's moist and flavourful - rich and juicy with flavours and textures from mushroom and tomato pieces cooked right into the meat; and refreshing with garden-fresh lettuce, tomato slices and sweet peppers. We also like to toss some shoestring french fried potatoes in there. This sandwich becomes an entire, satisfying meal in a pita pocket.
