Pork is a tasty variation from lamb in great-tasting gyros topped with garlic mayonnaise.
2-pound pork boneless shoulder roast, trimmed of fat
tablespoon Greek seasoning
cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
cloves garlic, finely chopped
pita fold breads
medium cucumbers, cut crosswise in half, then cut lengthwise into thin slices
medium tomatoes, chopped (1 1/2 cups)
If pork is tied, remove strings or netting. Place pork in 3- to 4-quart slow
cooker. Sprinkle with Greek seasoning.
Cover and cook on low heat setting 8 to 10 hours.
Meanwhile, mix mayonnaise and garlic in small bowl. Refrigerate until
ready to use.
Remove pork from cooker; place on cutting board. Shred pork, using 2
forks. Return pork to cooker and mix well. Spread 2 tablespoons garlic
mayonnaise on each pita fold bread. Top each with 1/4 cup shredded
pork, cucumber and tomato.
In place of garlic mayonnaise, serve with mint yogurt sauce.
Serve in pita breads instead of the pita fold breads.
Days before, marinate olives in olive oil, fresh rosemary and fresh thyme. Serve with these Greek sandwiches.
