Instructions

  1. Shawarma Marinade:
  2. Grind all whole spices to a powder in a spice grinder. Add the spices along with the lemon juice, liquid smoke, and apple cider vinegar in a blender for a couple of minutes. Don’t mix in the olive oil yet.
  3. Cut the beef into chunks of 4 inches long by no more than ⅔ inch in thickness.
  4. In a bowl, rub the meat with the marinade, sprinkle a bit of olive oil then rub again, cover and let marinate overnight in the fridge.
  5. Lay the marinated shawarma chunks on a panini or George Foreman grill and cook for 10-15 minutes on medium-high heat. Once cooked, shred the meat on a cutting board and serve hot.
  6. Grilling Shawarma Method 2: Oven Roasting:
  7. Lay the shawarma chunks in a Pyrex tray with a bit of marinade, cover the trap tightly with aluminum foil, then gently bake at 270-300F for 2 hours.
  8. Once cooked, shred the meat on a cutting board and serve hot. This roasting method will make the meat very tender and juicy and will almost fall apart.
  9. Preparing the Tahini Sauce:
  10. In a small bowl, whisk the the Tahini paste, crushed garlic, lemon juice and salt until you turn the paste into a sauce.
  11. Serving the Shawarma:
  12. Place about 4-6 ounces (to taste) of shredded shawarma in a pita bread well-slathered with toum garlic sauce. Along the diameter, sprinkle some Tahini sauce, combine sandwich ingredients and any other condiments you might like, such as Amba sauce, add. Roll and enjoy.
