    Moyni's Note:

    My attempt to replicate the gyros (pron: yee'-ros) I've had in Monastiraki in Athens and the islands. This isn't like the minced meat (usually lamb) kebab that we would here in the UK call a doner kebab and often eat on the way home from a night in the pub. This is what you could be served if you were eating in . . . . the alternative is to have the meat, onion and tsatziki wrapped in the bread and in a twist of greaseproof paper taken to go. This was my first attempt - and I was delighted, the belly pork has just the right amount of fat after quite a long cook on the grilling machine. I didn't have tomatoes tonight - a few slices would have increased the authenticity, but the "patatas tiganites" (chips/fries) on the side, and the mustard mayo (american-style hot dog mustard would have been good, too) were just the job.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Remove the skin from the pork strips.
    2. 2
      In a bowl turn the pork strips in garlic, oregano and a good twist of black pepper - leave to marinade for at least 30 minutes (more if possible).
    3. 3
      Griddle the meat - I used our George Formby "turned out nice again" grill (a wee joke for any ageing brits there). A lot of fat will drain off, the meat needs turning so all sides are well browned and the meat succulent.
    4. 4
      Slice across the strips to give chunks of meat ready to serve.
    5. 5
      Brush the pitas with a little oil and cook in a hot dry non stick frying pan for a couple of minutes each side.
    6. 6
      Assemble to serve: place a good quantity of the meat chunks on a piece of the bread, (a couple of tomato slices would work well here) top with a good dollop of the tzatziki, a good quantity of the thinly sliced red onion and put mustard on the side.
    7. 7
      Serve with chips/fries.
    8. 8
      A little salad garnish is pretty with this, as you can see from my photo, it can look a bit too all-brown.
    9. 9
      Kali orexi! (Bon appetit).
