Here it is… As promised… My homemade pork gyro recipe.
My family and I were in Kefalonia Greece last week and we couldn’t get enough of these. Traditionally, these gyros are made with pork shoulder as it is a fatty – and also delicious cut.
You could do the same but I decided to make the recipe with pork tenderloins. The end result was much leaner but equally as delicious.
All of the ingredients for this pork gyro recipe are easy to find.
I picked everything needed for my pork gyro recipe at my local supermarket. So no excuse for putting things off! You simply have to try this.
Make this recipe your own…
I got the flavour just right for my family and me. Feel free to adjust though. Make the marinade and taste it before adding the pork.
Add more of anything you feel will improve it. We all have different taste preferences so please use this authentic gyro recipe as a guide.
If you would rather use another meat, go for it. Pork is great but this gyro recipe works well with chicken thighs and beef too.
Of course you could just purchase these but homemade is almost alway best.
Place the pork tenderloin in your freezer for about a half hour as it will make it easier to slice the discs of meat.
For best results, be sure to marinate the meat over night and cook on skewers over hot coals. You will need metal skewers.
I hope you enjoy this simple but delicious pork gyro recipe. If you do try it, please don’t be a stranger. Leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you.
