Stuff your pita with something new today - spicy pork tenderloin with fresh veggies and a cool cucumber sauce! Try this recipe for lunch or dinner.
8 oz pork tenderloin
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 garlic, clove, minced
1 cucumber, peeled and diced
1/2 tsp dill, dried
1 green pepper, thinly sliced
1 cup spinach, sliced thin
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp oregano, dried
1 cup sour cream, nonfat
1 red onion, thinly sliced into rings
4 pita breads, halved
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 In a small bowl, combine the cucumbers, sour cream and dill. Refrigerate until needed.
2 Cut the pork across the grain into 1/2-inch cutlets, then slice each piece into thin strips.
3 In a large bowl, combine the mustard, oil, lemon juice, garlic and oregano. Add the pork and toss well to coat all the pieces. Let stand about 10 minutes.
4 Coat a large no-stick frying pan with no-stick spray and place over medium heat for 3 minutes.
5 Working in bunches to avoid overcrowding in the pan, add the pork and sauté for about 3 minutes or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate.
6 Place peppers and onions in a 9" glass pie plate. Cover with vented plastic wrap and microwave on high for 3 minutes or until soft.
7 Add the onions and peppers to the pan; sauté for 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Top pork mixture with peppers and onions.
8 Line the pita pockets with the spinach. Add the pork mixture. Top each sandwich half with a tomato and some cucumber sauce.

This recipe is suitable for me because I like eating spicy dishes and rooftop snipers have the same habit to me.
