These tender cuts of meat are marinated in lemon juice, garlic and oregano and grilled for a fantastic smoky flavour.
4 tbsp. olive oil
Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
2 large garlic cloves, chopped
2 tsp. dried oregano
2 small pork tenderloins (each tenderloin about 3/4 pound)
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
4 Greek-style pitas
Tzatziki sauce, for serving
4 large metal skewers
For the marinade: Add olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic and oregano to large bowl. Mix to combine.
Cut pork tenderloin into 1 1/2-inch cubes and add to marinade. Let marinade in fridge, about 1 to 2 hours.
Thread pork cubes evenly on large metal skewers. Season the pork with salt and pepper.
Preheat the grill to medium high.
Add souvlaki to grill, turning once. Cook until pork is just cooked through with hint of pink in centre, about 5 to 6 minutes per side. Serve with pita bread and tzatziki sauce.
