It wasn't until I went to Greece that I tasted pork souvlaki (kebab). I'd had lamb souvlaki at greek restaurants and festivals in the US, but never pork, While the pork is not quite as flavorful as lamb, it is healthy and so easy to make from a pork tenderloin or loin roast. In addition to the tzataki, we also served this with Sriracha sauce (chili sauce) which gave it a nice kick.

  1. Combine the tenderloin cubes and next 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and marinate in a refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight, or marinate 1 hour at room temperature.
  2. Preheat grill to medium high and brush and oil grates.
  3. Meanwhile, thread pork and tomatoes on to skewer. Spray or brush the tomatoes lightly with oil. Separately, thread the onions onto their own skewers and mushrooms (if using) onto their own skewers, brush or spray lightly with oil, and sprinkle with salt and black pepper.
  4. Grill the onion skewers for 12-14 minutes, the pork and tomato skewers for 8-9 minutes, and the mushroom skewers for 5-6 minutes, turning each skewer 3-4 times in quarter turns. Grill the flatbread for 1-2 minutes per side until toasted but not crisp.
  5. For the Tzatziki, combine the yogurt, parsley, mint, zest, oil and honey in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve skewers and flatbread with Tzatziki and and optional Sriracha sauce.

    I thought this was delicious. Marinating it overnight and using pork tenderloin resulted in extremely tender and tasty souvlaki. You won't be disappointed!

      This looks great, I just found my recipe to make for Tapas Night this week, thank you. And I made it, but being me I did switch it up a little. Pork Ribs were on special this week, so I made it with ribs, and they were a big hit.

          One of my local chef friends own a souvlaki bar and their souvlaki's are soooo good! This I believe will help me create mine at home :D

            I am mixed up I always thought tzatziki had cucumbers and oregano in it? Were they purposefully left out? And why is there no greek oregano in any of this? Does the author not like oregano? Other wise this sounds great.

              Fabulous dish John. Love the use of pork tenderloin, a lovely substitute :)
