Meat mains


Main Serves 2 1h 20 min
Serve these kebabs or pork and veg with some warm pitta bread and tzatziki. Chose veg that either cook quickly or you don't mind a little al dente; cremating the meat to wait for the vegetables is not what you want, and a 2cm cube of pork doesn't take long to cook. 100g of pork should be plenty for each kebab.


  • 200g pork, in 2cm dice
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • oregano
  • 400g assorted veg – try peppers, courgettes, onions
  • salt and pepper


Prep time: 1h
Cooking time: 20 min
  • Step 1

    Marinate the pork in the lemon juice, oregano, salt and pepper for an hour.
  • Step 2

    Thread onto kebab sticks (pre-soaked in water for 30 minutes if you are using wood) with the vegetables.
  • Step 3

    Don't push too much onto the kebab sticks though– the heat from the barbecue needs to be able get to all surfaces.
  • Step 4

    Barbecue, griddle or grill for about 8-10 minutes, turning regularly, or until the meat is cooked through.
