Seasoned bits of pork or lamb are allowed to season in a Mediterranean marinade for as long as you can stand it! Wonderful with rice and a cucumber and tomato salad. Serve with lemon slices and chopped parsley.

  • Stir olive oil, dry white wine, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Pour over pork in the bag and mix well.

  • Let pork marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 day, up to 5 days.

  • Remove pork cubes from marinade and thread onto metal skewers. Place bay leaf pieces between meat cubes.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Arrange skewers on the preheated grill. Turn the kabobs and baste with marinade frequently for the first 10 minutes of cooking, then discard marinade. Cook about 5 minutes longer, until pork is cooked through and juices run clear.

This is delicious! I did a couple things differently though. I didn't thread bay leaves on the skewers in between the cubes of pork, because they kept breaking apart. So I scratched that, and used an orange bell pepper instead (worked really well! Highly recommend doing that!). I also used soaked bamboo skewers in place of metal skewers. Other than that, I kept everything else the same. Marinated the pork for about 36 hours, then cooked it on our charcoal grill for about 18 minutes. Oh, and I wouldn't recommend basting the skewers with the marinade--you'd be reintroducing raw pork 'juice' onto the cooked product, and that's just asking for trouble. Read More

Instead of oregano I added some Cavender's Greek seasoning. And instead of bay leaves we used onion wedges. Otherwise this is exactly the recipe we use. I make a little more marinade so we'll have some to brush on. This souvlaki is as good as our favorite Greek restaurant that closed down last year and we are so excited to find it! Read More

Regarding marinade safety, just make a little extra and save it separately before you add the pork. Then you’ll have “clean” marinade to brush on. Read More

This was very good. The next time I make it I’m going to save some of the marinade, heat it on the stove and drizzle on the kabobs before eating for extra flavor. Read More
