    I’m assume the ground beef is browned and cooked first.

      Hey Delilah! It’s actually not browned or cooked. Since it’s a very thin layer, it cooks as you toast the bread. You can also bake them in the oven!

    Does the beef mixture need to be cooked before stuffing the pita?

      No it does not. The beef mixture will cook as you toast the arayes. This can be done in a pan or in the oven.
