Step 1
Gyros: Cut the pork neck into very thin slices about 3-5 mm thick. Marinate it with all the ingredients for about 12 hours. Then we put the meat on metal skewers and pass the pieces as if forming the letter S. Grill on the coals on high heat, turning them constantly.

Step 2
Sour cream: Put the ingredients for the cream in a bowl and mix them.

Step 3
Cut sweet potatoes into thin sticks and fry them in sunflower oil. Once the meat is caramelised and cooked, take it out and cut it into rounds.

Step 4
Serve immediately with sweet potatoes and sour cream.
