How to Make Greek Pork Skewers

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cut vegetables into 1.5 inch pieces and set aside.
  • 2Cut meat into 1.5 inch cubes(remove any fat and tendons) and place in container with tight fitting lid.
  • 3Squeeze lemon over meat. I use 2 if the lemons are smaller.
  • 4Crush dried oregano in the palm of your hand to release flavor and sprinkle over meat.
  • 5sprinkle salt and pepper over meat. I do about a teaspoon of each.
  • 6Crush garlic clove over meat.
  • 7Drizzle 1/2 cup olive oil over meat. Cover with lid and shake until well coated.
  • 8Set in refrigerator for 30 min up to two hours. *Remember the acid in lemon juice will start to cook the meat so don't leave it too long.
  • 9after about 30 minutes or so remove meat from the fridge and skewer meat onto shish-ka-bob sticks alternating with the vegetables.
  • 10Sear ka-bobs first and then cook over med/high heat on your grill or broil in the oven until the pork is thouroughly cooked - about 15 to 18 minutes. Make sure you watch it closely - I'm going by my grills cooking temperature and time...
    I like to serve it with beef bullion flavored rice and a salad or spinich salad.
