Greek beef sandwich I once had

It wasn't a Greek gyro, which is probably the most well known
Greek sandwich. It was beef that had been marinated until it turned white and looked like chicken. I'm not sure what that sandwich was called, but I'm thinking of doing the same...marinating beef until it turns white, like they did.
That place closed down long ago, but oh...that Greek sandwich was good.

What's that Greek sandwich called? Has anyone here ever had one? The beef looked like chicken. It must have been marinated 48 hours or something. Damn, it was good tasting. it wasn't a Gyro.

Was the beef in the form of kabobs? It could have been a shish kabob sandwich.

Hm. Beef turned white and looked like chicken. I have no idea what that might be.

My shish kabob with beef has always been beef-colored.

It was beef marinated until it looked like chicken, and cooked, put into a sandwich roll. I'm telling you all...it was gooooood!

It was probably marinated in either white vinegar or citrus juice. No beef that I'm familiar with.

It was probably a kabob sandwich. No real name to it, I suppose.

Beef marinated until it looked like chicken. I'm guessing 48 hours.

I can't imagine beef that looks like chicken but the marinade may have had a yogurt base.

I can't imagine beef marinating until it turned white, Caslon...? Unless it was lamb in tzatziki until it just looked white.

If it was Greek, the acid was probably lemon. A strong acid marinade can make beef paler than its original red.
