Easy Souvlaki – Who Doesn’t Like Souvlaki?

souvlakiThe other day pork tenderloins were on sale. I bought two and put them in the fridge. Last night I saw them and thought “Souvlaki!” This whole process only took about 15 minutes. I used a sharp knife to remove the silver skin from both the tenderloins and cut them into bit sized pieces (maybe 1″ square) and put them in a plastic bowl. I put a large skillet on the stove and heated up about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. While the pan heated, I added about a tablespoon of olive oil to the pork, salt, pepper, granulated garlic and dried mint. I also had a ‘greek spice mix’ in my spice cupboard so I threw some of that in too — and stirred it all together so the pork was covered. Then I put all the pork in the skillet at once and moved the pieces around until brown (maybe 5 minutes). I put a lid on the pan and turned the heat down to simmer/low and let cook for another 5 minutes.

On plates I put tomato salad (see other post for recipe), tzatiki sauce that I had bought from Loblaws, and rice which I cooked while I was making the pork. Yum. Yum. Yum. The whole dinner from fridge to table might have taken 30 minutes.
