What’s shawarma? Good…that’s what!
Shawarma is a tasty Middle Eastern dish and is made from thinly sliced meat. If you’re in the U.S., you’ve probably heard of chicken shawarma, but it can also be made with turkey, beef, lamb, and even goat meat. Traditionally, the meat is cooked similarly to gyro meat, where it’s placed on large cones which rotate in front of a heat source, which cooks the meat.
Shawarma is often served in a pita which has been steamed or lightly grilled – it’ often looks a bit like a Mediterranean burrito. You’ll commonly find it served with a sauce like tahini or hummus and pickles or veggies. And, in restaurants, it’s frequently accompanied by french fries.
We’re guessing you don’t have giant, rotating cones at home, but you can make your own shawarma-inspired dish at home using our Shawarma Seasoning – which is packed full of herbs and spices traditionally used to season shawarma – to flavor your choice of meat.
