1/1 Photo of Gyro-Style Pork Sandwiches
My kids love gyros but the frozen ones you can buy at the store lack the special taste and cuke sauce that the authentic ones have. This is a quick to fix copycat that also has the cuke sauce. It is a nice change of pace. Marinating time is not included. Posted for the Zaar World tour to Greece.
