Sweet Banana Lumpia with Milk Chocolate Toasted Coconut Butter.
Ok, so these are traditional, but just easier.
And with a few minor tweaks here and there.
Traditionally the pork is thinly sliced and then roasted in a rotisserie oven, but I personally do not have a rotisserie oven and I am guessing most of you do not either. So I went the much easier route and seared the heck out of my pork and then threw it in the crockpot. Done and done.
Maybe not as awesome as if you where to get them in Greece, but still pretty freaking good.
Currently I am wishing I was in Greece. Preferably, near the Mediterranean with the hot sun beating down on me.
Oh my gosh, does that not sound awesome?? It has been snowing here for days. Days and days of snow and the temperatures have been pretty cold too, so I am just craving warmth. Pretty sure you guys are too…..unless you live in a warm state in which case you may be craving cold snow. Dunno.
We can all just pretend right?
It seems my craving for warmer climates is causing me to think on a tropical level. At the moment, I am only interested in shooting foods with lots of color and want nothing to do with anything dull and boring. Maybe my grandpa is right, man was not meant to live above 10,000 feet!
But one bite into these colorful delicious gyros takes me to a seaside table with the beautiful blue Mediterranean surrounded by freshly painted white villas. Ahhh…
Unless you are planning a trip to Greece within the next week (and if you are, lucky you!) than you need to make these. You also needs to make these pitas because nothing will ever top a homemade pita and they are so easy. Like easier than driving to the store!
Perfect for a fun meal any night of the week if you ask me!

Oh and I know the feta is not traditional, but it is a must in my book. Seriously, do not skimp on the feta!
Have you tried this in an Instant pot yet?
Sorry, I’ve not tried that for this recipe. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan
Maybe I missed it, but I can’t find how much dill to put in the tzatziki. Also, the size of the pork I assumed to be 1 2-3 lbs roast? Thanks for sharing!
hi! It is 1 tablespoon dill and 1 (2-3) pound pork roast. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe. Thanks so much! x Tieghan
I see that the recipe calls for pork, but can you substitute chicken? Would the cooking time vary?
Chicken will be great! No difference in cooking time.
