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!
