Pork Souvlaki: Greek Pork Kabobs

This is another super yummy recipe coming from my friend Megan.  It’s really easy and a little twist on eating pork.  Serving it with a greek salad is the perfect compliment to the dish.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 pounds of pork shoulder, cut in 3/4 inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon of ground Greek oregano (rigani)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons of red wine (or good red wine vinegar)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

Preparation:

In a bowl, pour wine (or vinegar) and oil over the pork and toss to coat. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and oregano, and toss again. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

    Note: If using vinegar, do not marinate longer than 2 hours or the meat can absorb too strong a vinegar taste. If using wine, the meat can be marinated for up to 2 days as long as salt is also used.

Using 8 inch skewers, thread approximately 6 pieces of meat on each. This should make about 12 skewers.

Grill the meat turning until well browned, about 15 minutes. Serve on the skewers with a squeeze of lemon.

    Note: If using a gas grill, use wooden skewers. If using a charcoal grill, use metal skewers. If broiling in the oven, use either, but wooden skewers should be soaked in water for several minutes before using.

Yield: serves 3 (4 skewers per person) as a main dish.

Taste tip: If you have the spice sumac in your cabinet, rub a little on the meat before adding marinade ingredients.
