Grilled (or BBQ if you like) pork skewers, basically. Serve in pita breads with tzatziki, lemon slices, tomatoes, parsley and salad. We're eating a lot of Greek food at the moment so I'm collecting recipes to try. We've not yet had this one but it looks good...
- 900 g pork loin
- 1 red onion (chopped)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 lemon, juice of
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Cut the meat into small cubes, trimming off any excess fat.
- Thread them onto 12 bamboo or metal skewers (don't forget to soak them first if you're using bamboo), about 6-7 pieces per skewer.
- Pre-heat your grill / broiler to medium-high.
- Put the onion in a small bowl, cover with cold water and sprinkle with salt. Leave to soak for 20 minutes or so, then rinse, drain well and put in a serving bowl.
- Combine the oregano, lemon juice and oil and season well with salt and pepper to make a sort of marinade, and brush over the meat.
- Grill for approximately 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden on all sides (be careful not to overcook).
- Place on a serving platter, drizzling the remaining marinade over the top.
- Serve immediately with the onions.
Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag. This was okay but because you don't marinate the meat in the marinade you didn't really taste anything except the pork.
