Use a very tender cut of pork for this Greek style grilled entree. Marinate pork(with onions and green or red pepper if you like) in the lemon soy mixture. Thread onto skewers and grill. I just used the pork this time as I had some asparagus I wanted to use for a vegetable. I used wooden skewers. I soaked them in water for 2-3 hours. If the wooden skewers are soaked they burn up as easily on the BBQ. I served the souvlaki with my lemon potatoes(love them). A tzatziki sauce would taste yummy with the souvlaki, use as a dipping sauce.
