14 Ingredients

  • 600g pork scotch steak, cut into 2cm pieces

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) dry red wine

  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed

  • 1 tbsp dried oregano

  • 2 tsp sweet paprika

  • 1 red capsicum, halved, seeded, cut into 2cm pieces

  • 1 red onion, cut into thick wedges

  • 4 large pita breads

  • Tzatziki

  • 2 Lebanese cucumbers, trimmed, coarsely grated

  • 1 cup (250g) Tamar Valley Greek Style Yoghurt

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped mint

  • 1 garlic clove, crushed

  • Select all ingredients

5 Method Steps

  • Combine pork, wine, lemon juice, oil, garlic, oregano and paprika in a glass or ceramic bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 1 hour to marinate.

  • Meanwhile, to make the tzatziki, use your hands to squeeze as much liquid from the cucumber as possible. Place in a medium bowl. Add the yoghurt, mint and garlic and stir to combine. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

  • Drain the pork from the marinade. Thread the pork, capsicum and onion evenly among the skewers.

  • Heat a barbecue or char-grill on high. Add the pork skewers and cook, turning occasionally, for 5-7 minutes or until just cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Set aside for 5 minutes to rest.

  • Wrap the pita in foil and place on the grill for 2-3 minutes to heat through. Place the pita on serving plates. Top with the pork skewers and tzatziki. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

Tip: Pork or chicken are ideal for a quick and easy souvlaki as they are naturally tender meats and need just a short time to marinate. Beef and lamb will need a longer marinating time to infuse with flavour.
