Grilled Pork Souvlaki

My kitchen is torn up right now and it is a mess. Everything is in boxes as we are getting some needed repairs done. I am so excited for a new kitchen and will be so glad when it is all done. We have been eating out a lot. It is really hot here, but I wanted to try grilling despite the heat. I don't have any photos, sorry, my camera is somewhere in the mess and my daughter is away this weekend with hers(the above photo I found on the web, cheating, sorry). I hope you enjoy the recipe.

Grilled Pork Souvlaki

1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 large clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried whole oregano
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound pork tenderloin or pork loin chops, cut in 2” cubes for grilling
1 large green pepper, cut into 2” cubes( I like to use the yellow ones also)
1 medium onion, cut into 2” cubes
Combine, oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, pepper, salt together in a zip lock bag. Put the pork in the bag and seal, give it a shake and refrigerate for an hour. Using skewers, alternate peppers, onion and pork leaving room at each end of the skewer so the food doesn't slip off into the grill.

Grill for 10-15 minutes on medium heat, turning often and using the marinade in the bag brush them often while cooking.
This is easy and delicious, served with a nice fresh salad and fruit.

I am jealous about the NEW kitchen. We are going to move to Utah, it looks like. This looks like a great and tasty treat for the taste buds.
Thanks for the recipe.
