SUMMER DREAMING WITH GREEK TRADITIONAL SOUVLAKI & RETSINA
Souvlaki is a notorious Greek specialty made with tender cuts of meat, either pork or chicken.
In this pork recipe, the meat is marinated in a lemony olive oil mixture.
Serve it with a fresh cut Greek salad and complete the feast with a bottle of chilled Retsina (a traditional Greek dry white wine made with the addition of a small portion of pine resin)
What you need
1 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup of Greek olive oil
1 teaspoon of dried oregano
3 cloves of garlic (crushed)
4 pounds pork tenderloin cut into 1 inch cubes
2 medium yellow onions cut into 1 inch pieces
2 green or red bell peppers cut into 1 inch pieces
How to prepare it
In a large glass bowl, mix together lemon juice, olive oil, soy sauce, oregano, and garlic; add pork, onions, and green peppers, and stir to coat. Cover, and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours. Preheat the grill for medium-high heat. Thread pork, peppers and onions onto skewers. Lightly oil grate. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, or to desired doneness, turning skewers frequently for even cooking.
