Pork belly souvlakia

Method

For the pork belly

  • Cut the pork belly into 0,5 cm small cubes.
  • Transfer to a bowl and add the vinegar. Mix well and add the olive oil, salt, pepper, the oregano, and the paprika.
  • Mix well and set aside until marinated.
  • Place a frying pan over high heat until it gets very hot.
  • Add half of the pork belly and cook for 2-3 minutes, until it is golden brown and crispy. Ideally, do not mix a lot during cooking, so that the pork belly is properly cooked and not boiled.
  • Deglaze the pan with 1 teaspoon of the vinegar and mix. Remove and set aside.
  • Follow the same process for the second batch of the pork belly.

For the pita breads

  • In a bowl add the yogurt, the flour, salt, the oregano, and mix until there is a dough. Ideally, wrap with plastic wrap and let it rest for 20-30 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 4 or 6 pieces and roll them out into a 10 cm pita, using a rolling pin.
  • Place a frying pan over medium heat and add 1 teaspoon olive oil. Put one of the pita breads in it and cook for 2 minutes on both sides, until it is cooked through and golden.
  • Follow the same process for all the pita breads.

To assemble

  • Cut the tomato and the onion into thin slices.
  • Finely chop the parsley.
  • Take one pita bread and spread with 1 tablespoon tzatziki sauce. Add some pork belly, tomato slices, onion, parsley, and French fries.
  • Wrap and serve.
