Pork Souvlaki

We love souvlaki, like seriously love souvlaki. When we cook this, we usually pair it with lemon  roasted potatoes,traditional Greek salad with pita and tzatziki. With all those ingredients on hand the kids in our house usually make themselves a gyro. If you don’t like pork you can also use chicken.

Ingredients:

  • 12 oz (340 g) boneless pork chops
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) lemon juice
  • a good amount extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper

 

Directions:

  • Cut pork into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes leaving any fat on. In large bowl, toss together pork, lemon  juice, oil, oregano, salt and pepper; let stand for 10 minutes to marinate or more.
  • Thread chicken onto skewers. You can add veggies if you life (onions, peppers etc)
  • Our favorite is to BBQ on low heat for 45 minutes or until pork is cooked through.
  • Once done squeeze lemon on one more time and sprinkle with salt and oregano.

 

Tips:

  • Make sure you soak your skewers for at least an hour prior or else the ends will burn up on the BBQ. I use an empty two litre pop bottle, fill with water, stuff with skewers and screw lid on.
  • If you are making pita, heat up olive oil in a frying pan. When hot drop your pita in flipping when sides are golden brown. Season with salt and oregano and enjoy!
