Indulge in a culinary adventure as we whisk you away to the streets of Greece with our Slow Cooker Pork Gyros! Immerse yourself in the aromas and flavours of this Greek street food classic, right in the comfort of your own kitchen. Succulent, slow-cooked pork, fragrant herbs, and zesty tzatziki sauce will transport your taste buds to the sun-soaked Mediterranean shores.
This dish starts out with slicing pork tenderloin relatively thin. Don’t go too thin though, otherwise it may become tough when cooked. The rest of the slow cooker ingredients are fairly simple and you may even have them lurking in your cupboard.
Tzatziki is a must with any gyros. It’s a beautful yoghurt-based Greek sauce. We felt lazy when making this dish and used some store-bought Tzatziki – which is fine. However, it is super easy to make if you fancy giving it a go. This simple but tasty recipe from BBC Good Food is one we’ve used before.
To serve assemble your pork gyros, pile the succulent pork onto warm pita bread or flatbread. To top it off with a generous dollop of tzatziki sauce, along with your favorite garnishes such as sliced tomatoes, red onions, and crisp lettuce. We also think some fries are a must, but that may cause some debate! Whatever you choose, roll it up and take a big satisfying bite! You can wrap them up in foil or baking paper if you like.
