Slow Cooker Pork Souvlaki an easy dinner recipe

Greek food has a lot in common with Syrian food, the food I grew up eating. Often full of lemon, garlic, and olive oil, you always know that a Greek meal is going to be full of flavor but not leaving you overly full of feeling heavy.

Fortunately, my entire family loves Greek food so we make it quite a bit. These slow cooker pork souvlaki pitas were not only easy to make but a huge hit with the little ones.

Pork shoulder is slowly cooked in a Greek marinade made with simple ingredients like lemon, olive oil, dried mint and za’atar. When it’s done cooking, I simply shred it with two forks and stuff it into pitas with tomatoes, onions and our favorite Sabra Cucumber Dill Tzatziki Dip.

The cool and creamy tzatziki is the perfect balance to the savory Greek souvlaki. If you have dip leftover, serve it over grilled chicken, salmon or use as a dip with vegetables. The options are endless.

Your fork is waiting.

    When you say ‘cut into cubes’ what size cubes we talking?

      It’s totally up to you – the size actually doesn’t matter too much.

    The tzatziki sauce is a must with souvlaki. How nice that Sabra makes one ready to use.

        I’ve trimmed off a lot of fat as I cut into cubes but still a lot of marbling, worried the 1/4 cp of oil combined with the fat will yield a greasy outcome. Should I be lighter with the olive oil?

          So what I like to do is after the meat cooks, I remove from the slow cooker then I let the liquid cool then remove the solid fat cap from top of liquid. Does that make sense?
