Pork Souvlaki

It feels like I'm cheating when I buy marinated meat but Mitchell's does such a good job I just can't convince myself I can do better. I'm not sure what they put in their marinade but the pork is delicious. Now that I think about it we tried their chicken breasts and we loved them as well. I've tried other mass produced skewers which were more expensive and they didn't hold a candle to Mitchell's. To cook them I just brush the BBQ grill with oil and put the skewers over medium meat for 15 minutes. I rotated them every few minutes so they cooked evenly on all sides.

The basmati rice is cooked with olive oil, salt and a few drops of lemon juice. The broccoli was steamed and finished in olive oil and salt.

My plating is a relic of my attempts to remove the meat from the skewer without flinging it all over the counter and floor. I use a carving fork to push the first one off then two or three at a time after that.  If they are stuck, push just one piece of meat so you don't fling it across the room when it lets go. I guess I just pushed the meat aside and loaded the broccoli onto the plate. It's all so good it doesn't stay on the plate long enough to matter anyway.
