SOUVLAKI: Best GREEK Street Food! (Greek Souvlaki Recipe)

Pork Souvlaki is one of Greece’s most iconic street foods. Pork tenderloin is coated in a bold Greek marinade, woven through skewers in a kebab like fashion and cooked to perfection! Souvlaki is often one of the first introductions to Greek food for visitors from around the world. But enjoying souvlaki does not require a trip to Greece! With just a few staple ingredients for a bold Greek marinade and a lean cut of pork, you can easily prepare this delicious street food at home!

You can make souvlaki with other meats such as chicken, beef or lamb, but the “OG” (as I like to say) souvlaki is made with pork.

The most casual way of serving Greek souvlaki is inside pita bread topped with tzatziki sauce, tomato and red onion slices, and a dash of paprika.
