Grilled Pork Souvlaki Dinner Recipe With Grilling Tips

Grilling Tips For Pork Souvlaki

Marinating your pork for 3 ½ hours before you are ready to grill will make this meat come out moist and tender. To make sure that your barbeque does not flare while cooking the meat and vegetables, I recommend using a barbecue grill pan. This pan is a wonderful addition to any barbeque as it can be used for so many of your favorite foods. It is non stick so clean up is easy and fast. The best part of this meal is that it is all cooked right on the grill pan.

Grill Pan to Make Your Life Easier

Cook Time - Does not include marinating time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: Will serve 4-5 people

Side of Asparagus


  • As many asparagus spears as you like
  • cooking spray or a Tsp. of olive oil
  • A sheet of tin foil enough to wrap the asparagus spears in

Wash and prepare your asparagus by snapping the ends of the spears off. Spray or coat the tin foil with olive oil. Place the asparagus onto the tin foil and fold the tin foil to seal in the asparagus.


  • 2 - 3 pounds of pork sirloin
  • 2 large onions sliced thick
  • 1 green and 1 red bell pepper
  • cut into large chunks
  • 3/4 of a cup of lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 5-6 cloves of garlic peeled
  • 1 Tsp. of oregano

Marinade For The Pork and Vegetables

In a bowl or mixing cup combine lemon juice, soy sauce, oregano and pressed garlic cloves. Whisk all ingredients together to mix really well.

Preheat your gas barbeque grill to 400° F. For this dish I used 2 of my 3 burners, the far right and the middle.

Place the pork pieces into a glass dish or a marinading dish. Add green and red bell peppers along with the sliced onions on top of the pork.

Pour the marinade over the top of the pork with vegetables. Cover and refrigerate for 3 1/2 hours.



Now you are ready to grill. Place the grill pan onto the grill and on one side of the pan lay your asparagus in the tin foil.

Place your meat on the grill pan that has the holes in it. On the other side of the pan place your vegetables. You can also place some of the vegetables on top of the meat. Baste the meat and vegetables with a good portion of the marinade. Close the lid on the barbecue and let cook for about 15 minutes. While the meat and vegetables are cooking prepare and cook rice. After 15 minutes flip the meat and vegetables over and continue to grill another 15 minutes or until the pork is done.

Normally I would serve this meal with a Greek Salad and Tzatziki sauce.

Another way to prepare this dish is to skewer meat, onions and peppers and grill following the exact marinade and maybe add some cherry tomatoes to the skewers.

      It is always windy at my house, so no grill. But, I am still going to try the marinade for my pork, even if I have to cook indoors.

      nightbear, I usually start the barbecue season off in May and keep going until the first sign of snow. I love to barbeque and the less pots to clean the better :) Thanks for stopping by.

      Gordon, The first time that I made this recipe was just this past winter, and I made it in the oven. I will go back and put the link up above for you.

      A.A., Thanks so much :)

      Paul, I do use it quite often, for shellfish, scallops and especially shrimp. I have not tried it yet for salmon fillets but have been wanting to.

      Thanks for stopping by.

      barbergirl & Purple Perl Thank you and let me know if you make this and how you like it.

      Denise, Just before making dinner I saw what the Inspiration was this week and plugged in the camera. Thanks so much.

      Love the recipe and great photos. Looks delicious. Do you use a grilling pan for lots of bbqing? I think one would help with flareups on my gas grill.

      Looks and sounds delicious, Susan, and I am so envious of your climate that you get to do this. Probably not a good idea for me to try it in my kitchen, out of the torrential rain...

      I must also get out of the habit of reading your food posts at 3.30am when I should be going to bed and not thinking about food!! :)

      Oh my goodness, does this look fantastic. And ingredients that I love. I do also love grilling but admit I rarely find time to do it. I should allow this to inspire me and make my husband very happy. Thanks for sharing your grilled pork dinner recipe with us.
