“You had me at Gyros.”
Oh wait, that’s not it. “You had me at hello.”
It’s like these lovely gyros with their homemade tzatziki sauce are calling my name… and I’m responding, Renee Zellweger style.
What I love about the all-purpose pressure cooked shredded pork that we shared on Monday is how versatile the leftover pork is…exhibit A being that lovely gyro above!
And…I’ll be sharing Amanda’s amazing Shredded Pork Nachos recipe on Monday!
Yield – 5 servings
Preparation Time – 10 minutes (+30 minutes to chill Tzatziki sauce)
Cooking Time – 0 minutes
- 2-3 cups All Purpose Pork, cooked & shredded
- 5 pitas (get thicker, softer pitas – not the split pitas)
- 1 cucumber
- 1 Roma tomato, sliced
- 1/4 red onion, very thinly sliced
- Fresh fruit, as side dish
- 8 oz plain greek yogurt (or regular yogurt strained for a few hours in a sieve)
- 1 tsp dill
- 1/2 tsp lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
- salt and pepper
- Grate 1/2 the cucumber and then slice the rest of the cucumber in half lengthwise, remove the seeds and cut into half moons.
- Make the Tzatziki sauce by mixing the grated cucumber with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and let it drain for 30 minutes. Squeeze out the cucumber, then add it to the yogurt with dill, lemon juice, red wine vinegar salt and pepper. (This is best overnight, but let sit at least 30 minutes).
- Top a pita with shredded pork. Layer on some Tzatziki sauce, onion, tomato, and cucumber slices. Roll up as best you can.
- Serve Pork Gyros with a side of fresh fruit.
