Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a large bowl combine pork, mushrooms, green onions, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Divide pork mixture into four equal portions and form each portion into a ¾-inch-thick patty.
  2. For a charcoal or gas grill, place patties on the grill rack directly over medium heat. Grill, covered, for 14 to 18 minutes or until done (160°F), turning once halfway through grilling.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine yogurt, feta cheese, garlic, and rosemary. Spread yogurt mixture evenly inside pita quarters. Add grilled pork patties and sweet peppers to make four sandwiches.
