Pork Souvlaki

While this recipe specifies pork tenderloin, you have the flexibility to whip up these souvlaki skewers using pork chops, pork butt, or pork shoulder. Opting for cuts with higher fat content, such as butt and shoulder, imparts an extra layer of richness to the flavor profile. Conversely, leaner choices like pork tenderloin and chops yield a lower-fat and lower-calorie dish. Regardless of your pork cut preference, our souvlaki marinade guarantees a flavor-packed, tender, and juicy dish that the entire family will savor.

Ingredients

  • 2 pork tenderloins (approximately 3/4 lb. each)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 8 skewers, metal or wooden

Instructions

  • Begin by placing the pork tenderloins on a cutting board and cutting them into 2 cm (3/4 inch) cubes.
  • In a spacious bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, and dried oregano, whisking them together thoroughly.
  • Add the cubed pork to the bowl, then use your hands or tongs to ensure it’s evenly coated with the marinade. Refrigerate and allow it to marinate for a minimum of 1 hour or, for enhanced flavor, up to 24 hours.
  • Once the pork has marinated to perfection, thread the pork cubes onto skewers and generously season with salt and pepper on all sides. Discard any unused marinade.
  • Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat, then add the skewers and grill for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 145°F.
  • After grilling, remove the pork skewers from the heat and allow them to rest for a few minutes before serving.
