Pork Souvlaki Recipe

To be honest, I’m a little overstuffed with meat these days. I don’t eat it very often, but I had it every day while on vacation, so posting this recipe seems strange.

As I previously stated, I have drastically reduced my meat consumption in recent months because my body does not crave it: it craves green vegetables and fish, but not meat. Or, at the very least, not as frequently as I used to. That is not to say that once a week or every two weeks I don’t feel like it, and when I do, this is one of my favorite recipes for adding a unique twist to a dish.

Souvlaki is a traditional Greek marinated meat dish that can be made with chicken, lamb, or pork... It's typically marinated in lemon, wine, and mint.

Ingredients

  • 3 pork tenderloins
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 glass of white wine
  • ½ glass of white wine vinegar
  • 1 glass of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh mint
  • ½ tablespoon fresh oregano, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of black peppercorns

Instructions

  1. To make the skewer, cut the sirloins into cubes.
  2. Put the garlic, peeled and cut into slices, the squeezed lemons, the white wine, the vinegar, the oil, the salt, and the fresh herbs in a mixing bowl.
  3. Crush the peppercorns with a large, flat knife to release more of their aroma. Place them in the container.
  4. Add the meat and let it marinate for at least 4 hours. The lemon juice and vinegar will not only add flavor to the meat, but will also cook it.
  5. Thread the meat onto toothpicks and keep the maceration liquid aside.
  6. Set an iron over high heat and begin making the skewers, turning them so that they are even on all sides and watering them with the marinating liquid.

Notes

  • Soak the skewer sticks in cold water for 30 minutes before making the meat, so they absorb moisture and do not burn.
