    Anthony Gougoutris's Note:

    Souvlakia is to Greeks what hot dogs is to America. In almost every greek party in the summer months, this is the staple. My family and I really enjoy it!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cut lamb into 1-1/2" cubes, trimming the fat.
    2. 2
      Combine all of the ingredients in a gallon"zipper" bag.
    3. 3
      Shake well to combine.
    4. 4
      To achieve the best flavor, marinate 24 hours in the refrigerator, shaking a few times.
    5. 5
      Put lamb on metal skewers with each chunk touching, but not tightly.
    6. 6
      This will taste best on a good, hot charcoal fire.
    7. 7
      Turn often on the grill, and they should be done in about 15-20 minutes.
    8. 8
      Dont put vegetables in between the meat, as they just do not grill well together.
    9. 9
      Please use a good burgundy or full bodied red wine, that you would enjoy drinking by itself, not that stuff they call"cooking wine".

      Couldn't get lamb on short notice so I subbed out chicken breast and used a a nice white wine (Australian Viogner/Pinot Gris) instead of the burgundy but kept everything else the same and it was fantastic. Next time I will try with lamb!
