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!

Pork stew with dried prunes

For the quick lunch or in case you don’t want to spend a lot of time near the stove, this pork stew if just for you. While it’s stewing, you can take your time and prepare salads or some side dish. No matter how suspiciously we looked into dried fruit and meat combination, here it suits perfectly. This time as a side dish we had brown rice, so do not be surprised that they look like dirty, but after all, healthier 🙂

Vištiena su cinamonu ir paprika

Chicken with cinnamon and paprika

Cinnamon always associates with Christmas. So when autumn comes, we all tend to bake apple pies which almost every time are seasoned with cinnamon. But this spice is used not only for sweets. With it you can really prepare very tasty and also healthy dishes. One of them – chicken with cinnamon and paprika. And even if you are not used to cinnamon in non sweet meals, I can say that in here it gives only a very mild aroma and a good pinch of bitterness and cosiness. And paprika has a lot of vitamin C, so it’s really good if you don’t want to get cold.
