Recipe by Chef Gorete

A traditional Greek recipe that tastes great with a variety of meat. Often, I marinade a big batch and freeze part of it for future use. See Tzatziki sauce recipe to accompany the dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut meat into 2 inch cubes and place in dish with a cover. Combine the remaining ingredients and toss with the meat, coating well. Cover and marinade in the refrigerator 3-4 hours, or preferably overnight, stirring occasionally. Remove from the fridge 30 minutes prior to cooking.
  2. Soak wooden skewers in hot water for 30 minutes. Loosely thread the meat onto skewers, allowing two skewers per person.
  3. Cook on the barbeque or under the broiler for approximately 15 minutes, or just until done. Serve with Tzatziki sauce.
  4. Note: Sometimes I marinade whole breasts or pork chops and bbq them whole.
