Made as written for a fellow Goddess of ZWT-9 (or at least I thought it was). My Story: As I browsed recipes ck'ing for ingredients I knew I could find here in Iceland & got down to pita bread, I was good-to-go w/this recipe - EXCEPT I had overlooked a keyword - WRAP. W/the recipe essentially done & assembly in progress, I read "Fold the pitas in half". So I'm thinking - Fold? How do you fold pita bread? It was only then that the WRAP word cleared the fog in my brain. Pita bread in Greece must be a tortilla! Duh! It was way too late to overcome my error, so we dined & enjoyed my version. DH said "It is messy, but good!" Ev will say "It is what it is." What can I say besides thx for sharing this tasty recipe w/us. :-)

Wow! This is full of flavor. I did not have time to marinate, but simply threw the marinade ingredients in the frying pan with the pork (using only 2 T. oil). I also made a few minor ingredient substitutions for what I had on hand. It is fairly simple to make and adds a unique flavor to dinner. Will definitely be making again! Thanks for posting.
