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!

these are fantastic souvlaki! I made a bunch of them, marinated and then froze them in portions (not on skewers of course lol) all ready for when needed

Amazingly delicious and easy dish. I used boneless pork country ribs, simply because I was feeding a lot and the other cuts were way too expensive. When making for four, I will definitely try the lamb. Perfect blend of herbs, garlic, onion and the vinegar really helped create extra tenderness. I will use this recipe a lot. Thanks, CountryLady!

Wonderful!! I used pork tenderloin, fresh oregano and more garlic and marinated it for two hours before cooking. Also I skewered chunks of onion with the pork instead of putting it in the marinade. Very simple to put together! Thanks!

I marinated this for 4 days, using fresh herbs, but this recipe did not turn out the way I was expecting. I would play around with this one befoe I would come back to it
