I want to show you how this works by featuring Fage fat-free plain Greek yogurt in a delicious recipe. Yes, my Fiery Chicken Shawarma features Fage Greek yogurt in both the chicken marinade and a delish drizzling sauce...but I wanted to share a new recipe with you to go with this great promotion. After poking around online for a bit, I came up with a winner: Bobby Flay’s Pork Gyros with Tomato-Yogurt Sauce. I knew that this recipe had just what I was looking for: easy prep, healthy, and lots of great flavor! Juicy marinated pork tenderloin, caramelized sweet yellow onion, and a delicious tomato-feta yogurt sauce make a great dinner.
Pork Tenderloin Gyros with Tomato-Feta Yogurt Sauce
adapted from Bobby Flay via Food Network's website
Step 1: Make the marinade by combining the following ingredients in a bowl: 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup red wine, two finely minced or grated garlic cloves, 1 tsp. Greek oregano, the zest of one lemon, and 2 tbs. lemon juice. Whisk to combine and add 1 lb. pork tenderloin to the marinade. Cover and put in the fridge for four hours...or overnight.
Step 2: Make the sauce by combining the following ingredients in a small bowl: one small container Fage 0% plain Greek yogurt, one grated clove garlic, 1 diced seeded roma tomato, 1/2 cup feta, 2 tbs. lemon juice, 1 tsp. Greek oregano, 1/2 tsp. dill, and 1 tbs. chopped flat-leaf parsley. Stir to combine and let it hang out in the fridge at least an hour before serving.
Step 4: To assemble the sandwiches, slather about 2 tablespoons of the yogurt sauce on your pita of choice. Top with thin slices of the roasted pork tenderloin, some of the caramelized onions, and a bit more feta for good measure. Fold and eat...and feel free to add a bit of shredded lettuce as well if you like.
