Pork Souvlaki*

1/2 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp dried oregano
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

2-lb center-cut boneless pork loin, fat trimmed, cut in 1 1/2 inch chunks
6 10-12 inch long metal skewers

Marinade: Blend ingredients in blender or food processor until smooth. Pour into a gallon-size ziptop bag. Add pork loin, seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate 15 minutes or up to 24 hours.

Heat outdoor grill or oven broiler. Lightly oil grill rack or broiler-pan rack.

Thread pork on skewers (discard any remaining marinade), leaving some space between chunks. Grill or broil, turning skewers as needed, 10-12 minutes until browned and just barely pink at center. Serve with Greek salad and pitas.
