In a mixing bowl, combine the pork, ginger, garlic, 7 tbsp. sweet chili sauce, water chestnuts, 1 tbsp. green onion, parsley and thoroughly fold the ingredients into each other.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking pan with cooking spray. Wash your hands and use a spoon to scoop pork mixture from the bowl. Using your hands, pinch off a walnut-size portion of mixture, shape into a small patty and place on the baking pan. Repeat

until all of the mixture is used up, then bake in the oven for about 15 minutes, flip the patties over and continue cooking for 10 minutes or until golden brown, then let cool.

Prepare the dressing in a second mixing bowl by mixing together the Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, sriracha (optional), 2 tbsp. sweet chili sauce and 4 tbsp. green onion. Begin assembling sandwiches by filling each pita pocket with some cabbage and a couple pork patties. Using a spoon, drizzle a little dressing onto the pork patties. Top with some cucumber, mint leaves, and shallots. This is healthy, refreshing AND delicious!
