The Gyro Marinade is AMAZING! 

I loved school’s Butternut Squash, so I tried to copy it. I didn’t have Honey, so improvised with Maple Syrup and it was AMAZING!

2 med. Pork Chops or Steaks (Double Marinade, if more)
Marinade:
2T Olive Oil
2T Worcestershire
2T White Wine Vinegar
a lil shy of 1/2T Garlic Clove, minced
1.5T Dried Oregano
1tsp Pepper (Or to taste)
1 Beef Cube, crushed
1/2tsp Onion Powder
1/2tsp Garlic Powder
1/4tsp Sea Salt

Premix Marinade. Pour over Pork. Marinade 1 hour, then, cut up, and marinade another hour. Fry in skillet, cooking down juices. Top onto Pita Bread with Tomatoes, Onions, Lettuce, and this EASY Cream Cheese Tzatziki:
1/2c Cream Cheese, slightly softened (Sour Cream can be used)
1/2 Cucumber, grated
1/2tsp White Vinegar
1tsp Lemon Juice
1/2tsp Pepper
1/2tsp Garlic Powder
1/2tsp Dill Weed, or to taste
1/4tsp Salt
Soften Cream Cheese. Add everything. Stir well. Allow to cool. Spread onto Gyro.

Roasted Sweet and Spicy Butternut Squash:
1 Butternut Squash, cubed and skin cut off
Pinch Sea Salt
Pepper
Olive Oil, brushed pan
Sauce:
2T Maple Syrup (Homemade) (Honey can be used)
2tsp Sriracha
1/2tsp Lemon Juice
1/8tsp Brown Sugar

Cut and remove skin. Brush pan with Oil, toss around Butternut Squash to lightly coat. Season with Salt and Pepper. Toss, again. Cook uncovered, single layered, at 400 for about 40 minutes, or until soft. Mix with Sauce. Bake about 5 more minutes. Allow to set some to cool.
