As well as a great family dinner, this is ideal for lunch. Make extra pork and for dinner, serve it with rice and Greek salad. The next day, put the extra cooked cubes in a container to enjoy cold for lunch. Send along some pita bread and put some tzatziki in another container for your child to assemble a very tasty sandwich at school.

Trim and cut pork into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes. In large bowl, whisk together lemon juice, oil, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper; add pork and stir to coat. Marinate for 10 minutes. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
Evenly thread pork onto six 8-inch (20 cm) skewers; place on foil-lined baking sheet. Brush with marinade. Broil 6 inches (15 cm) from heat, turning halfway through, until just a hint of pink remains inside, about 12 minutes.
Spread tzatziki over each pita. Remove pork from skewers and place on pitas; fold over.
