    1. Stir together the lemon juice, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, oregano, thyme, garlic, black pepper, salt and cayenne pepper. Place pork cubes in a self-sealing bag; pour lemon marinade over pork cubes, seal bag and refrigerate overnight.
    2. Remove pork cubes from marinade (discard remaining marinade); thread pork onto skewers (if using bamboo skewers, soak in water for an hour to prevent burning). Broil or grill for a total of 10-12 minutes, turning to brown evenly.
    3. Serve pork cubes in or alongside pita bread, topping with Yogurt-Cucumber Sauce (instructions follow).
    4. Yogurt-Cucumber Sauce: Peel, seed and dice one large cucumber. Let cubes drain on a piece of paper toweling for 10 minutes. Mix cucumber cubes with yogurt, seasoned salt, cumin, 1/4 tsp black pepper and cilantro. If made ahead, cover and refrigerate until serving time.
