Ballpark Pork Gyro with Peppers and Onions
Source: The National Pork Board
What You’ll Need
1 pound Prairie Fresh® boneless pork loin roast (thinly sliced)
2 tablespoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons dried rosemary
½ teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
¼ cup canola oil (divided)
1 red bell pepper (cored, seeded, and thinly sliced – about 1 cup)
1 red onion (thinly sliced – about 1 cup)
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
2 tablespoons parsley (chopped)
5 pita bread (gyro-style, warmed)
5 slices tomatoes (halved)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
5 tablespoons Greek yogurt (optional)
- Preheat oven to 450 F
- In a mixing bowl, toss together the pork, oregano, rosemary, cumin, and garlic. Set aside.
- Meanwhile, make the peppers and onions. Heat 2 tablespoons of canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the peppers and onions and cook, stirring occasionally until they begin to caramelize, about 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
- Pour the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil into the large skillet and turn the heat up to high. When the oil begins to smoke, add in the pork, and spread it out into 1 layer. Without stirring, let it cook and develop a deep brown color, about 2 minutes. Then stir the pork, season with salt and pepper, and then add the peppers and onions back into the pan. Toss the pork and pepper mixture together and continue to cook until the pork is cooked through, about 2 minutes. Stir the parsley into the pork mixture.
- To assemble the gyros, divide the pork and pepper mixture between each pita, topping each gyro with 2 tomato halves, some of the lemon juice, and a tablespoon of yogurt. Wrap in wax paper and serve.
