I don't make a lot of sandwiches around here. I'm not sure why because I love a good sandwich. Hey...I've even been known to chow down on a cookie spread and jam sandwich when I'm desperate for something sweet! These gyros were pretty fun. I didn't have the stuff to make a traditional Greek sauce to go with them...so I used ranch dressing for mine but they would be good drizzled with a little Italian dressing. You could also do these sandwiches with chicken if you're of the mind! These were different and fun and yummy!
1 2-pound chuck roast
1 medium onion ~ sliced
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt and pepper to taste
Place sliced onion in the bottom of the crock pot.
Place roast on top of onions.
In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, oregano, lemon juice and salt & pepper.
Pour over roast.
Cook on low 8 hours until tender.
Remove roast from crock pot and shred into large chunks.
Serve on warmed pita bread with lettuce and tomato.
I used ranch dressing for a sauce but next time I'll make some tzatziki sauce.
Makes about 6 sandwiches.
Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
