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!

These were super good! I thought I was in Greek Town. I did add about 1/4 cup red wine (saw in a different recipe) and grilled instead of broiled. Made this (#80959) tzatsiki sauce added some chopped roma tomatoes. This dinner really hit the spot.

I had a pork loin and didn't feel like having roast, so I made this with Tzatziki and it was delicious!

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!

I agree with PetsRus. This is exactly how souvlaki should taste. My dinner guests were duly impressed. We cooked the skewers on the grill instead of broiling. This made an easy, delicious summer dinner. Thank-you for the recipe.

I really enjoyed this recipe, I have tried other recipes and this one is far better than the rest. I have printed this one and it is staying in the book.

Yummy souvlaki! Marinated overnight in lots of fresh garlic, lemon juice, and good olive oil, so it had to be good. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Fabulous! I marinated these for 36 hours and cooked them on stove top on my very hot grill; just a few minutes. Served it with Rice pilaf and my Greek Village Salad. Next time I will make it outside on the grill. Best ever Souvlaki!

Delicious!!! I marinated for about 10 hours and used boneless pork ribs. Loved it. We'll be making this again. Thanks for the recipe.
