Greek Pitas Recipe

I like to serve these when the gang's over for football games—they taste like gyros and the guys love them! You can prepare the meat and sauce ahead of time for added convenience.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling Cook: 5 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (8 ounces) plain yogurt

  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1-1/4 pounds lean boneless pork, thinly sliced
  • 6 pita breads (6 inches), halved and warmed
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, cucumber, dill and seasoned salt; cover and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.
