a balanced plate with room for dessert

I love meals that Mike and I can work on together. Translation – he can grill. I also love meals that are fairly easy to prep. Souvlaki was just that!

I served this with homemade pita bread and some Greek salad for the perfect meal. So, quick, give this meal a try before it gets too cold to grill! I swear we’re only a couple of weeks away from our first snow.

serves 6

1 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 – 3 pounds pork tenderloin, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 medium onions, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 green bell peppers, cut into 1 inch pieces

  1. In a large non-reactive bowl,  whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, soy sauce, oregano, and garlic.
  2. Add pork, onions, and green pepper to the marinade and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  4. Thread pork, onion, and green peppers onto skewers.
  5. Lightly oil grate. Cook pork for 10 – 15 minutes, turning once.

One thought on “Souvlaki

  1. I just made souvlaki with chicken, now I am wanting to try it with pork thanks to your recipe. This looks great, I bet the soy sauce adds an interesting flavor.
