Pork souvlaki marinated in oregano, rosemary, garlic and lemon then skewered and grilled until golden and juicy is a great easy dinner recipe.

Greek pork souvlaki

I absolutely love Greek flavors and these juicy pork skewers are a prime example of using those classic flavors in a simple, delicious way. Pork souvlaki is quick and easy to make and perfect for cooking on an outdoor grill or on a griddle pan on the stove. Serve with a simple Greek-inspired salad for a gluten-free, keto-friendly meal or go all the way and add tzatziki and warm pita bread for a casual feast.

How to make Greek pork souvlaki

Cube pork steak or fillet (steak will give a juicier, more flavorsome end result) into bite-sized chunks. Combine olive oil, fresh lemon juice, finely minced garlic, oregano and chopped rosemary with salt and pepper and mix well. Pour the souvlaki marinade over the pork and allow to marinade for at least 30 minutes, but up to 24 hours. Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes then carefully slide the pork onto the skewers. Cook the pork souvlaki on a hot grill or griddle pan for 5-7 minutes per side until well browned and cooked through. Remove and allow to rest for 5 minutes then serve with lemon wedges.

Can you cook souvlaki in the oven?

Yes, you can. Just take care not to dry out the pork in the process. Heat the broiler/grill of the oven to its hottest setting (approximately 250ºC/480ºF) and place the skewers on a rack set inside a roasting tray. Cook the skewers for 5-7 minutes per side until golden brown and cooked through.

    These were the best kebobs we’ve ever had. The pork was so juicy and it was the first time I used a cut other than pork chops or tenderloin. Thanks so much for a great recipe.
