Rotisserie Gyros


I'm a little late on posting this one but it's worth it!

A couple of Saturdays ago, we made Gyros on the rotisserie. I bought 2 kg of pork steaks (the cheap ones without bones!) The rub I used was rather simple:

8 Tsp Oregano
4 Tsp Thyme
2 Tsp Paprika, sweet
1 Tsp Cumin
2 Tsp Onion powder
2 Tsp Garlic powder
2 Tsp Rosemary
1 Tsp Ground coriander
3 Tsp Salt
2 Tsp Pepper
3 Tsp Sugar

Take your pork steaks and give them a good rub with the spice mixture and then fold in half and skewer. That's it! Make a good fire and let the rotisserie turn for about 1.5 hours. Once everything is starting to get nice and crispy, take the spit out and start cutting the meat down into a pan. Put the spit back on the grill, repeat.

In that last photo, you can see that we served them on tortillas with homemade tzaziki, tomatoes, and onions. Juicy and delicious!

καλη ορεξη!

I bid you Peace,

Grilled to medium-rare perfection with oven wedges and grill tomatoes.

Simply perfect.
