Something different from the grill... the warm pita bread holds succulent, picante-marinated pork topped with a creamy yogurt sauce.  It's easy to get fired-up about these tasty sandwiches!

  • 1 1/2

    cups Pace® Picante Sauce - Medium

  • 1

    boneless pork tenderloin (about 1 1/4 pounds), cut crosswise in thirds

  • 1/2

    cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt

  • 1/4

    cup diced cucumber

  • 1

    tablespoon lime juice

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • 5

    pita bread (6-inch), warmed

  • 1

    cup shredded lettuce

  • 1

    green onion, sliced (about 2 tablespoons)

How to Make It

Step 1

Pour 1 cup picante sauce into a shallow nonmetallic dish or gallon-size resealable plastic bag. Add the pork and turn to coat. Cover the dish or seal the bag and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Step 2

Stir the yogurt, cucumber, lime juice and cilantro in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate.

Step 3

Lightly oil the grill rack and heat the grill to medium-high. Remove the pork from the picante sauce and discard the picante sauce. Grill the pork for 25 minutes or until cooked through. Slice the pork into thin strips.

Step 4

Top each pita bread with about 1 tablespoon remaining picante sauce. Top with the pork, lettuce, green onion and yogurt mixture. Fold the pita breads around the filling.

Recipe Tips

  • To warm the pita breads, wrap them together in a plain paper towel. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute or until slightly warm to the touch.
  • For pita pizzas, grill the pita breads until crisp, then top with the picante sauce, pork, lettuce, green onion and yogurt mixture.

    This recipe was great!!! I used some of the picante mixture for grilled pork and then I sauteed chicken in the mixture. I served them in whole wheat pita pockets topped with lettuce, green onions and feta cheese!!! Perfect game day meal! After the Chicken Nacho Appetizer!

    Grilled Pork in Pita with Tzatziki Sauce

    This was good! My husband has Celiac's so we used corn tortillas for him and flour tortillas for the rest of us to make wraps. Nice way to do pork!
