Greek-Style Pork Pocket Sandwich
A very hot oven quickly creates crisp pork strips for this gyros-style sandwich. Serve with pickled peppers, cherry tomatoes and sweet potato chips.
1 pound boneless single loin pork roast, cut into julienne strips
1/2 cup Caesar-style dressing
2 pita loaves, halved
4 tablespoons cucumber dressing
1 small red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
- Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C).
- Toss together pork strips and Caesar dressing; place strips in a shallow pan and roast until pork is crisp and lightly browned, about 10 to 12 minutes.
- Open each pita half to form a pocket; fill with some pork, top with a tablespoon of cucumber dressing and some onion.
