FOR THE SOUVLAKI


Step 1

Mix the pork and all the other ingredients together in a bowl, then cover and let marinate for a few hours in the refrigerator.

FOR THE TZATZIKI


Step 2

Place the cucumber into a colander and sprinkle with a little sea salt. Let stand for 20 minutes or so, over a bowl or the sink, then squeeze out as much water as possible.

Step 3

Mix the cucumber into the yogurt, then add some pepper, the sugar, dried mint, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Taste, and add some more lemon juice or seasoning as you see fit.

Step 4

When you are ready to cook the souvlaki, preheat a grill to high or preheat a ridged griddle pan until hot, then thread the cubes of marinated meat onto skewers. Cook the souvlaki for about 10 minutes, turning fairly frequently, until cooked through and starting to char in places on the outside.

Step 5

Warm the pitta breads in a low oven or under a low grill, then split and fill each one with souvlaki, tzatziki, tomato and onion slices, and fresh mint leaves. Serve at once.
