Steps

1
Done

For the dough: Add the flour, dry yeast, baking powder, and olive oil to a bowl, season with salt and start mixing using a fork. While mixing, gradually add warm water until you make a soft dough. Then use the hands to knead it. If necessary, add more flour. Let the dough rise for 30 minutes.

2
Done

Marinate the souvlaki: Place the tenderloin pieces into a baking dish, then add the red onion, rosemary, white wine, lime juice, olive oil, garlic, and white wine vinegar.

3
Done

Season with salt and pepper and mix to coat the meat with marinade. Marinate for 30 minutes.

4
Done

When the time is up, prepare the skewers. Alternately skewer the meat and onion pieces. We've used two skewers for this, but you can use four. Drizzle the grill with the vegetable oil and place the skewers on it. Grill them on all sides.

5
Done

For the tzatziki: Add the Greek yogurt, cucumber, fresh mint, garlic, and olive oil to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix.

6
Done

Dust the work surface with some flour. Place the dough on it and divide it in quarters. We'll use just two, keep the other two refrigerated for later use.

7
Done

Flatten one piece of dough using a rolling pin. Do this until it gets very thin. Cut it into halves and place it in a skillet over low heat. Cook it on both sides until it starts changing color and brown spots appear. Do the same with the other piece of dough.

8
Done

Wrap each souvlaki with a pita, remove the wooden skewer, add some tzatziki and cherry tomatoes, and serve.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
