    Derf's Note:

    So good broiled, wonderful luncheon or dinner with a Greek salad and rice pilaf. adapted from Canadian Living mag. (cook time includes 10 minutes marinating time) The photo shows them in a pita, have tried them both ways in and on, equally good either way, also so good just over rice, preferable brown rice.

      This is how Souvlaki should taste and how I remember eating it in Greece, we only didn't have the sunshine to go with it! Made Souflaki before but used too many other herbs I think. In this recipe the oregano is prominent and we found that gave it a very authentic flavor. Cooked them in the grill pan on the stove top and served them with a Greek salad, pita and Tzatziki Thanks Derf, another good recipe to go on the barbeque this coming summer!

      Souvlaki is something I miss since I have returned from my studies in Melbourne. it can't be found in stingapore, and boy am I glad I can make my own now. This was just wonderful. I did substitute the pork with lamb and it turned out just fantastic. Exactly what a Souvlaki is meant to taste like. Thank you so much for bringing back a bit of greek living to a singaporean family!

      Just like Mister Greek's! I marinated overnight & cooked on the BBQ. Since I was serving this with Greek Potatoes & Greek Salad, I omitted the pita. Thanx Derf!
