    CountryLady's Note:

    This is posted in response to a request for "skewer" recipes. A real coincidence as this was being prepared on the food network by Nick Makris from Nick's Diner in Regina Sask - it looked SO GOOD I just had to post it. Use pork or lamb - serving with pita bread is optional but tzatziki is a must! Prep time includes a minimum of 2 hours for marinating.

      Was looking for recipes that used mint. Even though it's just April our mint is wild right now. Coincidentally we also had a pork loin ready to be cut up. So delicious and kept the pork moist. Served over rice with grilled peppers and onions. Will keep and use again. Thanks for posting!

      I doubled the recipe, and put the coated meat in freezer bags, then threw them in the freezer. Next time I want souvlaki, I will just take the bags out. It will marinade as it thaws.

      Excellent flavor ~ made the best gyros we've ever had. I was a little concerned about the mint as I've never used it before in a marinade, but it didn't over power at all. Served with pita pockets, feta and tzatziki!
