Ingredients

  • For the marinated pork:

  • 4 pork loin medallions, or pork loin steaks, fat removed and each cut into six cubes
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • For the skewers:

  • 2 small red onions, each peeled and cut into 8 wedges
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • To serve:

  • 500g baby new potatoes, halved
  • 200g tub of ready prepared tzatziki
  • 15g fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 8 wooden kebab skewers or 4 large metal skewers

Method

1

If using wooden kebab skewers, soak in water for 10 minutes. In a medium bowl, mix together the zest and juice of 1 lemon and the oregano. Season, add the pork, cover, set aside.

2

Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in a large saucepan of boiling water for 10 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside to cool.

3

Preheat the grill to moderate.

4

Drain and discard the pork marinade. Thread the pork and vegetables onto the skewers; brush all over with the oil.

5

Transfer the skewers to a grill pan lined with foil, and cook under the grill for 10 minutes, turning the skewers regularly until golden brown all over and juices run clear.

6

In a large bowl, mix the tzatziki with the new potatoes. Spoon onto 4 serving plates with the skewers.

7

Sprinkle the fresh mint, cut the remaining lemon into wedges, and serve with the skewers.

Serving Suggestions

Tip: The potato salad can be made ahead. You can also make up the kebabs in advance to store in the fridge until required and grill just before serving.
