Peppered pork pitas with garlic spread

This is my family favourite. Don’t know why – it looks so simple, but even my kids can’t stop eating till the plates are empty. You can buy pitas and just warm them, your dinner will be very quick, but I like homemade pitas. I’ve tried a few recipes, but this one I liked most, because all pitas were perfectly baked from the first time.

Peppered pork pitas with garlic spread

Time needed:
Yields: 4 servings
Calories: 623 kcal / 1 serving

Ingredients:
1 cup = 237 ml

  • For pitas:
  • 250 g flour
  • 10 g fresh or 3 g dried yeast
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • pinch sugar
  • 150 ml water
  • 1 1/2 tsps. oil
  • For the sauce:
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise or sour cream
  • 2 tbsps. skim milk
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • For the pork:
  • 500 g pork tenderloin, cut in bite size stripes
  • 2 tbsps. oil
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground peppers
  • 1 big red bell pepper, cut in stripes

Directions:

  • First of all make pita dough. It should be elastic and smooth. Put in a warm place to double, it can take about 1 hour.
  • Knead a little bit the dough and devide to 5 or 6 balls. Cover and leave to rest for 10-15 minutes in a warm place.
  • Preheat oven to 250°C, put in an oven baking tray to heat. Roll dough balls to 0,5cm thin patties and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
  • Bake in an oven one by one pitas for 4-5 minutes. Don’t open oven doors without need. If you will see that edges of the pitas starts to brown, take it out. Cover baked pitas with kitchen towel to soften.
  • Prepare the sauce – in a bowl mix mayonnaise, milk and crushed garlic. Set a side and let mix flavours.
  • In another bowl mix pork stripes with salt, peppers and one tablespoon of oil. Heat the pan with another tablespoon of oil and saute bell pepper stripes. When bell pepper starts to soften, add pork and bake for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Call everyone to the table. Cut pitas in half (I use scissors for that) and add into pita pockets pork and sauce.
  • Enjoy!

Kiaulienos medalionai su Maggi Papyrus lapeliais bei sveikuolių salotos

Pork medallions in Maggi Papyrus with healthy salads

Next to the pork medallions I served some healthy salads which I saw yesterday in one of my magazines. It was simple and almost everything was already in my refrigerator. We enjoyed them a lot, even my kids ate them (with some motivation – some candies in front of them, which were kids if they eat all salads). Me and my hubby agreed that these salads would be grate even without meat, because roasted sunflower seeds were so good in these salads. So we’ll be making them soon for sure again.

One more our favourite recipe.

Vištiena su jogurtu

Chicken with yoghurt

Quick dish if you prepare a day before. We liked it because it tasted differently as we used to.

Minced pork and green beans stew in whole grain pita

This stew is very simple and cassual. Here pitas are as turbo feature 🙂 But they are not necessary. Just we love them and time after time I bake them. Next time we will make some yoghurt sauce with seasoning. Then the dish would be perfect. And this time we thought about the sauce only in the end.

Chili con carne

Chili con carne

Mexican minced meat and bean chilli. Can be prepared very quickly. We were afraid that beans will blanket out other ingredients, but we were wrong and I am glad about that. We wanted something hot, and we got it 🙂
