Pork Souvlaki
60 Min Serves 4


Ingredients

  • 800g leg of pork, diced into 2cm chunks
  • 1tbsp dried mint
  • 1tbsp dried oregano
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 100ml olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1tbsp red wine vinegar
  • A pinch of seasoning

Accompaniments

  • 8 rosemary stalks or kebab skewers
  • 8 flatbreads or pitta breads
  • 2 lemons on BBQ (for flavour)

Method

  1. 01. Put all your kebab ingredients into a bowl and use your clean hands to mix everything together really well. Cover with clingfilm, and then pop into the fridge for 30 minutes.
  2. 02. I have used rosemary stalks as my skewers, you can pick up fresh rosemary in supermarkets, and it gives the meat great depth of flavour. Or If using wooden skewers, soak them in a tray of water to stop them burning while the pork is marinating.
  3. 03. Preheat the BBQ or use a griddle pan or grill if the weather is bad. Thread the skewers through the marinated pork pieces. Cook the kebabs on the steaming hot griddle or grill for about 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally until done on all sides. I also put some lemon halves next to the souvlaki, as they roast and steam squeeze some of the caramelized lemon juice over them.
  4. 04. Warm your flatbreads or pitta breads in the oven or on the BBQ while your kebabs are cooking.
  5. 05. Serve with a classic Greek salad and tzatziki for an epic crowd pleaser. Perfect on a summers evening and goes especially well with a few beers or crisp white wine.
