  • lb. trimmed pork loin, cut into ″ cubes
  • ¾ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar
  • 5 tbsp. finely chopped mint
  • 5 tbsp. finely chopped parsley
  • 2 tbsp. finely chopped oregano
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 bay leaf, finely crushed
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1½ tsp. crushed red chile flakes
  • 2 10″-long Italian hoagie rolls, split, toasted, and halved
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. In a large bowl, toss together pork, ¼ cup oil, vinegar, half of the fresh herbs, lemon juice, bay leaf, and salt and pepper; cover with plastic wrap and chill overnight. In a small bowl, whisk remaining oil, and herbs with chile flakes, and season with salt and pepper; set sauce aside.
  2. Place oven rack about 4″ below broiler, and set to high. Thread four or five pork cubes onto metal skewers, and place on foil-lined baking sheet. Cook, turning once, until charred and cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  3. Place skewers on rolls; drizzle with sauce and serve with lemon wedges.
