4 medium lean pork cubes -- 1 inch x 1/2 inchea
1 package cane skewers
1 teaspoon salt -- pepper, lemon, oregano
---in addition -- for method 2---
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cloves garlic -- crushed
2 tablespoons dry white wine
medium fresh tomato wedges
1 medium Onion slices
1 recipe tzatziki recipe
1 loaf fresh pita or French bread

Preparation / Directions:

Thread the pork lengthwise on 8" round or flat cane (bamboo) skewers. Grill over hot coals or griddle until thoroughly cooked, then sprinkle with salt and pepper and dip quickly into lemon juice. Crush oregano over the meat. Source: "The Food of Greece" by Vilma Liacouras Chantiles, Avenet Books, New York. Method 2: Our family makes up a marinade of lemon juice and good quality olive oil, oregano and/or thyme, pepper, crushed garlic and maybe a little dry white wine. Marinate the pork overnight, then grill until just cooked, not dry. Eat as is, straight from the skewers, or remove meat and serve in pita bread pockets, with tomato wedges, onion slices, and Tzatziki, passing salt and additional freshly ground black pepper.
