Souvlaki: the most prefered food of Greeks


 Souvlaki is one of the most popular street food in Greece, stuffed with cooked and seasoned meat (pork or chicken), garnished with Tzatziki sauce, wrapped in a delicious warm Pita bread; it tastes divine! Have you ever tried to prepare it at home? Choosing the good quality pork, using a low fat yogurt for the Tzatziki and baking the Pita with some olive oil instead of frying it, is healthier and absolutely delicious.

Ingredients
4 store-bought or homemade Pita bread
1 red onion, sliced
1 tomato, sliced
fried potatoes

For the pork gyros
1 pork tenderloin, cut into strips
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried rosmary
1/2 tablespoon of honey

For the pork gyros: mix very well into a large bowl the pork meat, garlic, red onion, olive oil, red wine vinegar, rosemary, oregano and honey. Wrap the bowl in cling film and put into the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Put a large non-sticking pan over high heat, add the tenderloin along with the marinade and saute for 2-3 minutes stirring well until the meat is crispy and tender inside.

Brush the Pita breads with olive oil, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and bake for 1 minute.

To serve the souvlaki, spread some Tzatziki sauce on the Pita breads, add pork gyros, red onion slices, tomato slices and some fried potatoes. Wrap with foil and serve with some mustard and mayonnaise sauce.
