Saturday Sandwich 94: Souvlaki Pita Bread

A Souvlaki is a grilled pork kebab with a yoghurt sauce wrapped in a pita bread. We're looking forward to this one :)

First you make the meat filling. Diced pork, garlic, oregano, mint, lemon zest and juice, red wine, olive oil, salt & pepper all go in a bowl. Mix them together, cover and leave in the fridge for a few hours.

Slice an onion and some cherry tomatoes ready to make the sandwich then make the tzatziki sauce. You mix up plain yoghurt, pinch of sugar, squeeze of lemon juice, mint and finely chopped cucumber.

Grill the pork and lightly toast the pita bread. Then fill the bread with the pork, vegetables and tzatziki.

This is a really good sandwich! The pork is tender and flavourful, the vegetables give a nice crunch and the tzatziki adds a tart moistness to the whole thing. We enjoyed this sandwich a lot but we'd made ours with a flatbread which made it hard to eat (not technically the sandwich's fault though). We opted for that instead of a pita because the only pita we could find were tiny :D

Anyway, a delicious sandwich enjoyed by all (me and JD).
