Gyros and Tzatziki Supper

… here we are again. As I mentioned (promised) before this was not the last you saw of the self-made tzatziki, the ultimate one. (I truly didn’t eat it up all at  once).
Today it is going to be featured in a “typical” Greek meal, you may get at restaurants … hm … well … I guess … outside Greece.
However, once in awhile, when you soul is hungering for meat, meat, MEAT, you might want to have a go at this Gyros kind of thing.
How shall we go about doing this?
Have some pork ready. That would be a good start. We are going to marinate this. Best you do it the evening before. If that is not possible, make sure that the meat is marinating for at least two hours.
Cut this pork in small little bits, thin if you like, or can, or want (no worries – whatever suits your desires). Shove it to a bowl and add the following: quite some olive oil (as good quality as you are willing to use – this will of course affect the taste as you might have guess), salt, pepper, dried oregano, and garlic (finely chopped, grated, squashed, blitzed). Cover it up and let it marinate as I mentioned before. Once you have done this the remaining part should be without trouble or too much work.
Now that you are ready, get a large pan on high heat and add the marinated meat together with all the content of your bowl and fry it up nice and crispy.

Serve together with some onion rings, a simple (or if you like complicated) salad and nice bread.
Well, let’s sum things up. If you do a bit of preparation the night before, you might have an easy meal the next day, you come home stressed from work.
You only have to worry about the day after. Somehow you have to find a way to mask the smell of all the garlic you ate ... no worries ... you will find a way.
That’s a KISS for you “Keep It Simple Sister” (I heard that some time before – maybe long time ago – I know nothing about it’s origin anymore, but I thought it might fall in line here).
While we are at it. Do you have any suggestions for a KISS?
