Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh oregano, plus more oregano for garnish
  • 2 (1-pound) pork tenderloins
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Yogurt-Tomato Sauce, recipe follows
  • 4 grilled pita pockets, for serving
  • Mesclun greens or baby spinach, for serving
  • Thinly sliced red onions, for serving
  • 1 pint Greek yogurt
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 plum tomato, seeded and finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh oregano leaves
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

Step 1

Whisk together oil, wine, garlic and oregano in a baking dish. Add the pork and turn to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. 

Step 2

Preheat grill to high. 

Step 3

Remove pork from marinade and season with salt and pepper. Grill until golden brown on all sides and cooked to an internal temperature of 150 degrees F. Let rest 5 minutes and slice into 1/4-inch thick slices. 

Step 4

Build gyros by drizzling each pita with the yogurt sauce, then adding mesclun, onion, and meat. Drizzle with more sauce and garnish with oregano.

Step 5

Combine all the ingredients, cover, and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.
