My 30 Minute Grilled Pork Souvlaki using Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork Garlic Herb Filet gives you “Real Flavor Real Fast” for an easy meal plan!
Everybody seems to be busy busy busy. My family is no exception. My oldest is 17, my youngest is “Ella” is 11 and my middle is 13. Sports, work and after school activities always make it a challenge to get a healthy meal on the table in less than 30 minutes. That’s usually all the time we have. Well maybe 35 minutes. That gives us 5 minutes to eat. Whew!!
Our family loves greek food from Gyro, to souvlaki, all the way to baklava. The problem with some greek food is not the cooking time, even though gyro meat is slow cooked, but it’s the marinating time. But marinating is what makes it tastes so good, but takes so long. My 30 Minute Grilled Pork Souvlaki saves the time of marinating the pork by using Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork Garlic Herb Filet from Walmart.
The flavors of the Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork Garlic Herb Filet has the perfect seasoning for pork souvlaki. The grilled red onion and tomato don’t even need seasoning. The pork grills in about fifteen minutes. If you have never had homemade tzataiki sauce, you don’t know what you are missing. The Greek yogurt, cucumber sauce pairs perfectly with the Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork. You will think you just landed in Athens. 30 Minute Grilled Pork Souvlaki is a great alternative to fast food and is very quick and healthy,
To make my 30 Minute Grilled Pork Souvlaki I picked up all my ingredients from my local Walmart. The Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork is located in the fresh meat department. Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork is available in a variety of flavors using popular cuts such as Tenderloins, Loin Filets and Roast. Since Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork are already marinated it’s perfect for and easy meal solution for any night of the week.
I made my tziatziki sauce the night before to let the flavors come together. The sauce can also be made while you prepare the Grilled Pork Souvlaki and it will taste fine. You can also pick up store bought tziatziki sauce. Since the pork is already marinated all you need to do is clean and light your grill. It is always good practice to lightly oil your grill grates to keep food from sticking. Make your kababs by starting with a slice of onion, followed by a piece of cubed pork, then tomato, another piece of pork and then onion. Keep repeating ending with onion. The onion helps keep the pork and tomato in place while the kababs grill. Grill kababs for 10 – 15 minutes, turning to get all sides charred and cooked through. Cook until pork reaches an internal temperature of 155° F.
Serve the pork and veggies in a soft flat bread or pita with tziatziki sauce with some rice. That’s it and now you have a wonderful, healthy, 30 minute meal. The best part is you can repurpose all the ingredients into a salad for lunch the next day. Just add some shredded lettuce and use the tziatziki sauce as the dressing. Yum!!
