Description

Everything Greek Pork Pitas – peppery pork with tzatziki, parsley, sun dried tomato, feta, and lemon juice. works in the Instant Pot!


Scale

Ingredients

Greek Pork:

  • 3 pounds pork shoulder, fat trimmed
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

For the Pitas:

  • pitas
  • tzatziki
  • toppings of choice! like lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, feta, lemon, etc.

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients for the pork in a slow cooker on low heat for 10-12 hours, OR in an Instant Pot on the meat/stew setting (about 45 minutes). Shred the meat and stir it around in all those juices. YUM.
  2. Assemble pitas!

Notes

Instant Pot Tip: Multiple members of our team with different Instant Pots gave this recipe a try, and while the recipe works in the original Instant Pot as written, it can vary across others. If you’re using an Instant Pot Duo, we recommend adding 1 cup of water to prevent the burn warning and cooking for 60 minutes to ensure the meat falls apart easily.

I wrapped my pitas up (pita, pork, tomatoes) in foil and popped them in a 350 degree oven for a few minutes to get them soft and yummy. Then I dolloped them with tzatziki, parsley, feta, and lemon juice. Mwah.

If you are giving this meal to someone, just pack up the meat in a freezer bag (either cooked or uncooked with instructions) and then toss in a bag of pitas, store-bought tzatziki (or homemade – go you!), a jar of sun dried tomatoes, a lemon, a bag of parsley, and a container of feta cheese. Easy!
