This is my favorite way to prepare pork tenderloin!
It’s where the gyro originated from, only much better!
1/4-cup olive oil
2-tbsp lemon juice
1-tbsp chopped fresh oregano (1-tsp dried)
1 clove garlic, minced
2-lbs pork tenderloins, cut into 1" cubes
In a shallow nonmetallic dish, combine olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper
Add pork, turning to coat well
Refrigerate, covered at least 1 hour, (better overnight) stirring occasionally
With slotted spoon, remove pork from marinade, reserve marinade for basting
Thread pork onto 6 skewers
Place skewers on medium heat barbeque
Grill 7-10 minutes turning frequently and basting with reserve marinade, until pork is no longer pink, but still juicy. Serve on a thick warm pita bread (or a nice hoagy bun) with slices of sweet onions and tomatoes and thick cucumber sauce. OPA!
Yogurt Cucumber Sauce
2 cups plain yogurt
1/2 cucumber, peeled, grated, drained
2 cloves garlic, crushed
juice of 1/2 lemon, about 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons
salt and white pepper, to taste
pinch ground cayenne pepper
Mix all the ingredients together and serve as a dip or sauce, or just buy some cucumber sauce in the dairy department or cucumber ranch dressing for you lazy folk. Haha!
