METHOD 

-In a bowl combine the pork fillet with the ingredients listed for it, and cover with cling. Leave in the fridge for 3 hours (longer if possible – we did it the day before)

-Slice in half and scoop out the centre of the cucumber, then finely dice

-Mix with the remaining tzatziki ingredients and chill for at least one hour

-When ready heat a pan on a medium heat on the hob and add a tbsp of oil

-Seal the pork fillet in the pan for about 4 minutes making sure all sides are browned off 

-When done, place the pork on a baking tray into the oven on 180 or glass mark 6 for 12 minutes 

-Sprinkle the pittas with some water and place them in some parchment paper, wrap into a parcel and place in the bottom of the oven with the pork.

-Remove the pork and pittas from the oven, set the pittas aside and place the pork onto a plate and cover with foil. Allow this to rest for 5 minutes

-Finally carve the pork into 1cm slices 

-Cut the pittas in half and serve alongside the tzatziki, sliced tomato and onion and any other accompaniments you like, we always have chips and salad (just don’t tell anyone)
