I’ve discovered a new love for gyros and trying new ways to eat them. These Greek Pork Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce is simple yet flavorful. It’s perfect if you have a lot of leftover pulled pork, or if you want to make pork for this, make the pork a day ahead to save you some time. This recipe has you fry up the pork to give it a crispy extra layer of delicious. The tzatziki is super easy to put together and you can have this whole meal on the table in 20 minutes. Cosy this inside some warm pita bread and you will wish you tried this sooner! If you are having trouble finding some good pita bread, see here.
2 lbs pulled pork (see here)
