This is a super tasty recipe from my sister-in-law which originated with her Mom. We originally enjoyed it like an open face sandwich/salad – pita, meat, Tzatziki Sauce, Greek salad ingredients and lots of feta, but Sunday night we had forgotten to buy tomatoes so we had a quick version. Traditional pita is key! and you can also try to wrap the whole thing up and eat it like a sandwich, Brock tried this and the girls thought his mess was pretty funny.
2 lbs. pork (chicken or lamb) cut into even-sized 1 inch cubes
1 onion, finely chopped
1/2 c. EACH olive oil AND red wine
2 T. chopped fresh parsley
1/2 t. EACH salt, freshly ground pepper AND Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
Combine all ingredients in a glass bowl and marinate overnight (or at least a few hours). If you have the extra time to barbecue then thread the meat onto skewers (making sure to soak wooden ones first), and grill (or broil) for a few minutes each side until the meat is no longer pink.
For the quick oven version, pour the meat and marinade into a baking dish and bake at 400 for about 30 minutes, stirring at least a couple of times until done. To serve, use a slotted spoon to remove the meat from the sauce (or lay the skewers on a platter) and sprinkle all with;
1/4 c. fresh lemon juice AND 1 T. oregano
Eat in any style you wish with all of the trimmings and enjoy!
