If you have ever spent anytime in drinking in a Greek taverna, there is a good chance you may have ordered souvlaki and fries to go with that beer.
Souvlaki is marinated chunk of meat grilled on a skewer and is generally served on a pita with a side of fries. Eaten on the go or in a pub it is the Greek equivalent of the hamburger.
I marinated chunks of pork shoulder with lemon, onion, garlic and spices then skewered and grilled them. Once off the grill, I gave them another squirt of lemon and served them on pita with some slivered red onion and tzatsiki sauce made from Greek yogurt, cucumber, and dill.
Pork shoulder is the best cut for the most flavor. However, it you are still sticking to that New Year’s resolution, you can easily substitute a more lean cut like pork loin or tenderloin.
