Beef Souvlaki Kebabs With Tzatziki Sauce

It’s time to bust out your grill because I’ve got your new favorite beef kebabs! Today we are grilling up some flavor packed Beef Souvlaki Kebobs with a Tzatziki Sauce that will rock your back yard barbecue. Souvlaki is a popular Greek fast food that consists of small pieces of meat that are grilled on a skewer over a hot open flame.

I am serving it the traditional way with pita bread and tons of tzatziki.  Tzatziki is a Greek sauce typically served with grilled meat that is made yogurt (dairy free in this recipe), olive oil, garlic, dill, and loads of chopped cucumber. It’s basically the best way to top off any kebab, hands down.  The combination of the sizzling hot beef with the refreshing tzatziki in a soft pita makes for a delicious bite! 

Beef Souvlaki Kebabs With Tzatziki Sauce


    For the Beef Kebabs:
  • 2 lb beef cubes
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano or 1 tablespoon dried
  • Juice of one lemon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • Pita bread (optional)


    For the Beef Kebabs:
  1. Place the beef chunks, olive oil, garlic, oregano, lemon juice, salt, and pepper, into a large plastic bag. Transfer the bag in the fridge and marinade for 2 hours to overnight. 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. Serve with Tzatziki and pita bread.
    For the Tzatziki:
  1. In a medium sized bowl, mix together all the ingredients until fully combined. Place in the fridge until ready to serve.
