Main Dish:

Chicken Shawarma

Beef Shawarma



1 lb of flank steak, or steak tips. I often ask the butcher to cut into strips


2 tomatoes

½ lettuce

½ bunch of parsley

1 lemon

1 clove of garlic


½ cup tahini 

Oils and Vinegars

1 tsp of extra version olive oil

Baking and Spices

½ tsp black pepper, ground

½ tsp salt

½ tsp whole spice, ground

½ tsp cloves, ground

½ tsp cardamom, ground

¼ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp turmeric

½ tsp coriander

½ tsp cumin


How to make it:

  • Rub the meat with all the spices and sauté in a pot with extra virgin olive oil for few minutes, then cover with water and let simmer for 30 minutes, or until fully cooked.

  • To make the tahini sauce: add the tahini with the mashed garlic and juice of the lemon, season with salt and pepper.

  • If you prefer a sandwich than a salad, you can get a pita bread, add the cooked shawarma, add the chopped parsley and tomatoes, then drizzle the tahini sauce, roll up and enjoy!
