Ever found yourself stumped over what to do with leftover meat from dinner the night before other than simply reheating it and eating it as is? Well, we’ve got a recipe for you that transforms leftover pork tenderloin into delicious and healthy pork gyros. You can also make this with grilled chicken or roast beef leftovers.
Pork Gyros with Yogurt-Tomato Sauce
- Leftover pork tenderloin, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
- 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 ½ cups plain nonfat yogurt
- 2 handfuls sugar plum tomatoes, quartered
- 2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
- 2 tbsp capers, drained
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
- pita breads
- 1 red onion, halved and thinly sliced
- 1 cucumber, halved and thinly sliced
- 2 handfuls arugula
1. Mix yogurt through vinegar and cover. Let the mixture sit in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before serving.
2. Heat 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil in a hot pan on medium heat and add the leftover pork to warm. Remove from pan to prevent overcooking.
3. Build gyros by drizzling each pita with yogurt sauce, then adding arugula, onion, cucumber and meat. Serve, passing remaining sauce separately.
