Pork souvlaki



Step 1

Combine oil, vinegar, garlic, mint, lemon rind and pork in a large bowl. Season. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or longer if possible.

Step 2

Heat a barbecue (or grill or grill pan) on high. Thread pork onto skewers (see tips). Cook pork, turning occasionally, for 10 minutes or until well charred all over and just cooked through. Transfer skewers to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

Step 3

Serve pork skewers with pita bread, endive, onion and tzatziki. Drizzle with combined lemon juice and extra oil.

Souvlaki can be eaten plain straight off the skewers or, as we’ve done here, served with fresh salad and tzatziki. You could also wrap the ingredients in flatbread or pita wraps to make a gyro-style meal.

You will need 8 bamboo or metal skewers for this recipe. Soak the bamboo skewers for 10 minutes in boiling water before using to prevent them burning during cooking. Oil metal skewers to prevent sticking.

To make a quick homemade tzatziki, combine Greek yoghurt with grated and drained cucumber, chopped fresh dill, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Not suitable to freeze.
