  1. Step 1

    Combine the dried herbs and spices along with a big pinch of salt and rub all over the pork. Heat the oil in a large casserole pan and brown the pork all over on a medium heat for 4-5 mins. Remove the pork using tongs, then pour out any remaining fat into a bowl for later. Place the pork back in the pan and pour in the vegetable stock. Bring to the boil then cover and simmer on a low heat for 2½ hrs, until the pork is tender and can be shredded easily.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, make the tzatziki. Grate the cucumber into a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Use clean hands to squeeze out all the moisture, before combining with the rest of the ingredients. Season to taste and set aside.
  3. Step 3

    Put the red onion in a small bowl and cover with water. Once the meat is cooked, remove from the pan (discarding the liquid) and shred with two forks. Heat 1 tbsp of the reserved fat in the casserole over a medium heat and fry the shredded pork for 3-4 mins until crispy. You may want to do this in batches.
  4. Step 4

    To serve, toast the wraps briefly over a naked flame then spread with the tzatziki. Drain the red onion and sprinkle over before adding the lettuce and tomato. Top with the crispy fried pork before rolling up securely.
