Make it: Greek Souvlaki

Another recipe for this cold Monday in London!

Souvlaki is one thing all Greeks know and many many many who have visited Greece have tried and loved. It's usually eaten inside a pita bread as a wrap. But I like to eat it plain in a skewer too. It's incredibly easy to make, of course and can be made with any meat, this time at home we made them with beef and pork (chicken is also a very common version).

Not sure if you have noticed it on my other recipes but I have started creating printable recipes, you can find them on each of the past and future recipes posts. I hope it makes it easier for you to quickly print them if you decide to make any of them. Please do let me know, it makes me incredibly happy knowing that you have tried one of the recipes I share. 

The printable recipe for this week's recipe can be found and printed here


For 6 souvlakia
Diced beef (150gr)
Diced pork (150gr)
1/2 green pepper 
1/2 red pepper

For the marinade
1 lemon
olive oil
salt, pepper


Build your skewers. Use 5 to 6 pieces in each and 2 to 3 pieces of peppers in between. Make sure you prepare them a couple of hours at least before you are planning to eat them so the marinade can soak up. Lay them in a large shallow bowl and squeeze 1 lemon on them, 1 cup of olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano to taste. Make sure they are well coated. Set aside in the fridge for a couple of hours. 

At home we served them with homemade french fries, you can also serve it with a nice salad. These cook very quickly. Heat up your grill pan on medium-high, once hot add some olive oil and place each of your souvlaki with room between them to cook nicely. Allow them to cook for 8-10 minutes turning occasionally. 
Once cook, garnish with some more oregano and coat them with lemon juice, have some toasted bread close by as the juice are to die for!
