Pepper Pork Pockets Recipe
In Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania, Paula Marchesi accompanies these pita pockets with pasta salad and sliced tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers. Tip: "To save time, you can make the garlic sauce up to 2 days in advance and refrigerate it," Paula offers.
- 1 pound boneless pork loin chops, cut into thin 2-inch strips
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 jar (7 ounces) roasted sweet red peppers, drained and coarsely chopped
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 6 lettuce leaves
- 3 pita breads (6 inches), halved and warmed
- Sprinkle pork with pepper and salt. In a large skillet, saute pork in oil until juices run clear. Add red peppers; cook and stir until heated through. Remove from the heat.
- In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, milk and garlic. Spoon pork mixture into lettuce-lined pita halves. Drizzle with dressing. Yield: 3 servings.

These are excellent. The sauce is so simple but tastes great.
