Peppered Pork Pitas

The combination of tender pork and sweet red peppers in these sandwiches will appeal to the whole family. Sometimes I also add caramelized onions. The sandwiches are especially good with garlic mayo. Have fun experimenting with your own variations. —Katherine White, Clemmons, North Carolina

    I'm vegan and my family isn't. My family loved it as written and I just subbed in pinto beans seasoned with the pepper and garlic for me. We liked sliced, home-grown tomatoes on it or subbing in whole wheat tortillas for the pitas, too. Delicious!

    This recipe is simple and delicious! I also made a cucumber sauce to go with it and I think this will become one of my families staple meals. Even my children who are 5 and 2 love it.
