A Walk On The Greek Side – Pork Souvlaki

Since I had to BBQ for supper I figured having something I like would be a good idea. Souvlaki is just a great thing to do on the BBQ, whether it’s pork or chicken, or even lamb. My wife I am sure would of rather had chicken but I didn’t have chicken thighs so she was out of luck. If you like lemon then you will definitely like souvlaki. I may complain often about bbqing but sometimes it is the best way to cook something.

The marinate for souvlaki is a simple thing and just about all the recipes I have looked at are basically the same. The one I use is my just tweeking recipes I have read over the years. Still this is a very simple thing to make and time does the hard work. The rice we had with it is my lazy version of a greek rice, but that’s a recipe for another day.


1/3 cup olive oil

1/3 cup lemon juice

1 teaspoon honey

1 tablespoon oregano

4 cloves garlic minced

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

mix everything together in a bowl

You can use pork loin, tenderloin, or sirloin steak, my choice was sirloin steak. Cube the pork so that you have pieces about a half inch by 1 inch long. Mix the pork into the marinate and marinate for at least 6 hours up to 12 hours. Skewer the cubes with either soaked wooden ones or metal skewers. Get your BBQ as hot as you can and bbq the souvlaki for about 4 minutes for each side turning once.
