How to make Greek pork souvlaki
Step 1: After combining the marinade ingredients, pour it over the pork. Marinate the pork for at least 30 minutes or overnight in the fridge, covered.
Step 2: In the meantime, soak the wooden skewers in water for about 30 minutes.
Step 3: Onto the soaked skewers, very carefully skewer the marinated pork.
Step 4: Ready your outdoor grill or griddle pan. Add the skewers to the grill or pan when ready and cook each side for about 5 to 7 minutes until the pork is golden brown and cooked through.
Step 5: When done, take away from the heat and let the souvlaki rest for at least 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy with some lemon wedges on the side.
