Ingredients

  • 2 1.25-pound pork tenderloins about 2.5 pounds total
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 large lemon juiced
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/8 cup fresh mint leaves
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Cut pork tenderloins into bite-sized pieces.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the pork tenderloin pieces and remaining ingredients. Marinate for about 1 hour (or up to 12 hrs).

Recipe Notes

You can substitute boneless chicken breasts for the pork tenderloin. Either way, this souvlaki is fantastic with tzatziki (Greek yogurt sauce).
