Absolutely delicious! I made chicken souvlaki with this recipe as I am on a diet. This makes it very low in calories and fat. I also barbecued it and added red & green peppers,purple onion & cherry tomatoes to the skewers, all no fat foods. I served it with Greek Salad, which really complimented the taste.

I made this with lamb instead of beef. I also put them in the oven as I don't have a griller or broiler(they took about 20min in the oven). The yogurt sauce compliments them beautifully. I served them with rice cooked in chicken stock and fresh parley. Very yummy

Wonderful! I added a little pureed cucumber to the sauce to give it an authentic greek flavor. Also dusted meat with "greek seasoning" just before grilling. Thanx for sharing!

This is another fantastic recipe by Diana! I marinated the meat for about 3 hours and it was terrific. I also drained the yogurt over a coffee filter for an hour to reduce the liquid. wouldn't change a thing.

So good! I used chicken instead of beef at Dianas suggestion. I used skinless thighs and we cooked them on the BBQ. The sauce is a perfect blend of flavours and was really delicious with everything we were eating. This is a great recipe and I'm keeping it!

Yummy and quick. I let the meat set about 15 minutes instead of 5 after tossing with lemon juice. The lemon flavor was a bit strong. I will stick to the 5-minute recommendation next time. However, the accompanying sauce and seasonings was just terrific. This made a quick and easy meal for DH to grill.

This is a great marinade. I only had time to let the meat marinate for about a half hour, but it still came out great. Very flavorful. I think I'll try this with chicken, too. Thanks!

This was fabulous! I made a paste from the oregano, garlic, and oil and rubbed it into the steak. Then I wrapped it with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for a few hours. I cut it into cubes and added the lemon juice for about 10 minutes. I love lemon flavour, so next time I will probably leave it longer. For the sauce I added finely diced cucumber. I served it with Greek Salad and pita bread. The meat was very delicious and very tender. This will definitely be my new way to make souvlaki! Thank you, Di!

Very good and simple. Be sure to heed the warning not to over-cook the beef. This is a thin and lean cut and will get tough quick. Grill it on the highest heat possible for the 5 minutes.
