Gyro Recipe - Ground Pork - Greek Seasoning - Wells Farms Beef, Madison, WI

Kenny doesn't often put his skills to work too much these days, but he is a pretty decent cook! He does get all the credit for this first recipe of the 2023 Recipe Challenge because it's all his!

This is a fun use for our ground pork and something that is a little out of the box as far as things go around here for us, so I thought it might be a good one for you as well. 

Have fun and enjoy this first week's recipe!

*** We used a Greek seasoning we purchased from The Spice and Tea Exchange.  You could also find it at some grocery stores. I saw it was available at Pick n Save/KrogerThe Tailgate Foodie also carries a Greek Seasoning. (These are not commissioned links)


If you can't find Greek Seasoning or would like to make your own from seasonings, you have at home - Go For It! We didn't always use a Greek Seasoning.  Kenny has often blended spices to make his mixture.  Here is one example of a DIY recipe but you could Google others if you would like.
