For the Gyros:

  • 500g of Parsons Nose boneless pork shoulder or chicken thighs, thinly sliced
  • tablespoons olive oil
  • garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Juice of 1 lemon

For the Tzatziki Sauce:

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 cucumber, grated and drained

For Serving:

  • 4 pita breads or flatbreads, warmed
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. Marinate the MeatIn a large bowl, combine the olive oil, minced garlic, oregano, cumin, smoked paprika, ground coriander, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Add the thinly sliced pork shoulder or chicken thighs to the marinade, ensuring each piece is well-coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, preferably overnight, to allow the flavours to infuse.

  2. Prepare the Tzatziki SauceIn a bowl, combine the Greek yoghurt, grated cucumber, minced garlic, fresh dill, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and refrigerate until ready to use.

  3. Cook the MeatHeat a large skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat. Add the marinated meat in batches, ensuring not to overcrowd the pan. Cook for 5-7 minutes per side or until the meat is cooked through and nicely browned. Remove from the pan and keep warm.

  4. Assemble the GyrosLay a warm pita bread or flatbread on a clean surface. Spread a generous amount of tzatziki sauce over the bread. Add a portion of the cooked meat on top. Layer with sliced red onions, tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and crumbled feta cheese. For an authentic touch, you can add a few fries inside the gyro as well.

  5. Wrap and ServeFold the pita bread or flatbread around the filling to create a wrap. Secure with a piece of parchment paper or foil if desired. Serve immediately with extra tzatziki sauce on the side.
