Greek Pork Kebabs

Greek Pork Kebabs

These kebabs are the ultimate Greek experience. Everyone will love their juicy cubes of pork seasoned with traditional souvlaki flavours and grilled to perfection. Easy to prep and assemble, these kebabs are an excellent choice for an impromptu neighbourhood party or a family barbecue. Serve the kebabs straight off the skewer, or make a sandwich with fresh pita bread. Either way, your guests are going to leave the party satisfied. Pro tip: Be sure to prepare extra yogurt sauce, as this creamy addition is sure to be a hit.


    Pork kebabs:
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
  • 2 tsp garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp grated lemon rind
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 lbs pork tenderloin, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • Yogurt sauce:
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Combine olive oil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, oregano, thyme, garlic, lemon rind, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add pork and toss until well-coated with marinade. Let stand for 10 to 30 minutes.
  2. Heat barbecue or oiled grill pan on high heat.
  3. Thread pork on skewers (if you are using wooden ones, you will need to soak them in water for 30 minutes in advance). Turning occasionally, grill pork for 10 minutes or until browned at the edges and cooked through but still juicy.
  4. Combine yogurt, garlic and salt in a bowl and stir together.
  5. Serve pork with yogurt sauce.
