Posted in : MAIN DISHES on by : Admin

A simple marinade is all you need to make these easy, healthy, and flavorful beef Souvlaki kebabs with tzatziki sauce.


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano (or 1 tablespoon dried)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • juice of one medium lemon
  • 1 1/2 – 2 pounds thick-cut steak (sirloin or new york strip work well)
  • Tzatziki Sauce

  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and sliced + 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups cold plain Greek yogurt
  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup chopped dill, fresh or frozen (may sub 2 tablespoons dried dill)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
  • Instructions

  • Chop steak into 1-inch pieces and set aside. Combine oil, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper, and lemon juice and stir to combine. Combine steak and marinade in a large zip lock bag, press as much as the air out as you can, and seal. Chill for 1 hour or up to 24 hours (the longer you can marinate the more tender and flavorful the meat will be).
  • Spread cucumber slices out on a paper towel. Sprinkle generously with salt on both sides and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Wrap cucumber slices in paper towels, squeeze excess liquid out, and transfer to a food processor or blender. Add remaining sauce ingredients to blender and pulse until smooth and creamy. Chill until ready to use.
  • When ready to cook your kebabs, thread the steak pieces onto skewers and discard marinade. Grill over medium-high heat for 10-12 minutes, rotating throughout to ensure even cooking. Alternately you can bake them in a large baking dish arranged in a single layer at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes until cooked through.
  • Garnish with chopped oregano and serve immediately with prepared tzatziki sauce.
