Perfect Grilled Souvlaki

Perfect Grilled Souvlaki

One of my favorite meals to order at Greek Restaurants is perfect, tender, and juicy Pork Souvlaki. It’s usually served with greek salad, tzatziki, pita, and fries- but the grilled pork kebabs make a delicious, easy meal at home, too!


Perfect grilled souvlaki- the secret to juicy, flavorful pork is this easy preparation method!


The balance of garlic and lemon make this grilled pork truly one of the most delicious meals ever! And really, what is better than lemon and garlic grilled pork?


One pork shoulder, cut into rough 3″ cubes
