Brush with the marinade. When cooking in an oven broil for 15 minutes while flipping it once in awhile or in a grill until golden brown.

Saute onions and tomatoes. Sprinkle with chili flakes (optional). Grill pita for 2-3 minutes brush with olive oil.

Spread tzatziki over the pita pocket layer the pork, add sauteed onions and tomatoes and spread tzatziki on top then sprinkle paprika.

* I got this recipe from recipezaar but i added a few perks because i like spicy foods. Don’t be afraid to add chili flakes or chopped jalapeño peppers or any spice you like just to make it more tastier. It is better when you grill it. enJOY!

You can buy Tzatziki dip in you regular grocery store in the deli section or any European deli stores.  This recipe is good with cold beer or chilled white wine.
