Beef souvlaki with vegetables


1kg cubed meat lamb, beef, chicken or pork
½ cup olive oil
2 lemons - about 4 tablespoons juice
¼ cup wine ( red is best, but white is o.k)
2 tsps dried oregano
1 tsps dried thyme
3 -4 garlic cloves, crushed
1 small onion, chopped
Salt and pepper
Whisk the olive oil, lemon juice and wine together then add the herbs crushed garlic and chopped onion and put the mixture into a deep dish. Putting some marinade aside to coat the cooked kebabs if desired. Add the meat cubes to the marinade and mix together well, ensuring the meat is well and evenly covered.
The meat needs marinating for at least two hours, but it is best if left overnight
Either metal or wooden skewers can be used, but the wooden ones need soaking for at least half an hour before they are used. This prevents them from burning.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, place your souvlaki on the shallow backing sheet, covered with foil and put it the oven for 20 minutes. Done!

Vegetables....well, I had
1 zucchini
1 bell pepper
some asparagus
2 teaspoons lemon juice
 1/2 cup of white wine
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon basil
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt, pepper
I cut zucchini and pepper. put all the vegetables in a bowl,  mixed it with lemon juice, olive oil, wine, basil, oregano, salt pepper. Covered it and left it marinading for 20 minutes.
Backing sheet, covered with foil again - just  place all your vegetables on it and cook in preheated to 550 degrees oven for 10-15 minutes or until tender. DONE!!!
