"A wrap done by Middle Eastern street vendors - the recipe is surprisingly easy, not a lot of exotic ingredients, and good. The most difficult part is cutting the meat very thin! These can also be made with beef or lamb."

I am a Chef/ Manager for a Catering Company and I put this on my Menu to see if it was as good as it sounded..And by the way my Clients were lining up for these lovely little wraps it was a huge success.I did not put in the hot sauce and I am glad these had some kick,,, Very Very Nice... Thank You Very Much. I will be having these with my family at home as well as at work...
This meal had a very strange smell and taste. Even the cooking stage smelled strange. We ate it but something got lost in the translation. We are very big fans of Middle Eastern food usually, but not this time.
I found this very tasty. Next time I make it I will not do it in Pita Bread, I am going to try it with veggies and potatoes or rice. Very nice thank you Irene
This was awesome! It was easy to make and a really nice flavor. I took it easy on the spice in the marinade but only because my husband is not crazy about really hot food. But I added a few drops on the shwarma itself, mmmmmmm I did BBQ it and it turned out good. I added a mix of chopped onion, cucumber, yellow bell pepper, grape tomatoes, and baby spinach. Seasoned it with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. This was a perfect summer meal that was easy to make!!
This recipe for Schwarma was delicious. Not to spicey and so good that my whole family(include little brothers and sisters) were wishing I had made extra. The only change I made was I used home-made flat bread instead of Pita bread. This is a winner!
These were really great. A tip for slicing the meat really thin: Freeze it first for at least 30 minutes. Makes it much easier.
I omitted the Mace.
And still...Man .. oh ... man is about all I have to say. It was heavenly. Just like back in the Middle East.
We really enjoyed this, it reminded my daughter of the stuff by the same name she had had in Spain, and she loved it. I think I would rather grill it (we'll try that next time as that's the way it was done in Spain), but this took little time overall and would make a great summer meal--light and pleasant on a hot night. It was not quite as spicy as I expected once cooked, we also sliced open the pitas into pockets, but we enjoyed the light flavor and the speed of cooking made it especially nice at the end of a busy day.
