Ingredients
  

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 medium lemon juiced
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 pounds pork tenderloin cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 medium yellow onions cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 medium green bell peppers cut into 1 inch pieces
  • skewers

Instructions
 

  • Gather all ingredients.
  • Mix oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, and oregano together in a large glass bowl.
  • Add pork, onions, and bell peppers, and stir until coated. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours.
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  • Remove pork and vegetables from marinade and shake off excess; thread onto skewers. Discard remaining marinade.
  • Cook on the preheated grill, turning frequently, until pork is no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Notes

Souvlaki is a Greek fast food that consists of meat grilled on a skewer. It can be served alone or inside of a rolled pita. It’s traditionally made with pork, but it’s also commonly made with chicken, beef, or lamb.
How to Store Souvlaki
Store your leftover souvlaki in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days. Reheat in the microwave or oven until the pork is warmed through.
