Pork Pockets

This picture does not do this pocket the justice it deserves. It was so incredibly delicious and exploding with flavor!It's a great alternative to the traditional Greek gyro.  My family was very sad when they realized there wasn't enough for everyone to have seconds, so I recommend you make extra.

Pork Pockets
  • 1 lb boneless single pork roast , thin cut julienne strips
  • 1/2 cup Caesar dressing
  • 4 pita breads
  • 4 tablespoons cucumber dressing
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 large tomato thinly sliced
Cucumber Dressing
  • 1 cup Greek style yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • 1/2 cup, peeled, diced cucumber
Tip: Try pickling your tomatoes and onions in a mixture of1 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/2 tsp salt, pepper and 1 Tbsp sugar. Refrigerate 2-4 hours ahead of time.

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Toss together pork strips and Caesar dressing; place strips in a shallow pan and roast until pork is crisp and lightly browned, about 10-12 minutes. Mix cucumber dressing ingredients together. Cut pita bread in half to form pocket. Fill with pork, cucumber dressing, onions and tomatoes. Enjoy!
