Souvlaki is a great Greek meat recipe, which combines tender meat and grilled meat.
Feel free to mix the types of meat you use and you can add onion and pepper wedges to your skewers as well.
Also, you can cut your meat into larger or smaller chunks depending on how large or small you like your meat skewers.
