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!

Minced meat, onions and caraway seeds stew

This stew doesn’t require much of your time, it just needs time to braise. I think freshly baked buns would be perfect here, but I had no time for them, so we ate with white bread. Original recipe calls for a lot more caraway, but I adjusted the amount for my family taste. Also be careful with the salt if using stock or you can end up with too salty stew (as I do sometimes 🙂 ).

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.

Buns with bacon

We don’t eat smoked bacon with onions and bread often, just sometimes 🙂 But after visiting family in farm we got a big cut of smoked bacon. So I baked buns with bacon. I just love them, but my hubby don’t. Anyway, I baked and froze a lot of buns, so now I have snack or breakfast for a long time:)

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.

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.
