Mediterranean Shawarma

· Food

Shawarma is one of my favourite foods, but there is a lack of good places to get decent shawarma around here so I make my own.

What you need:

  • 2/3 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 cucumber, grated
  • 1 tsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 2 pieces (60 g) naan bread
  • 1 small tomato, sliced horizontally
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced horizontally
  • x2 5.5 oz (150 g each) beef steaks
  • salt + pepper to taste

How To make it:

  1. Place a frying pan on your stove and turn it on to warm up.
  2. In a blender, combine the yogurt, oil, the lemon juice, and the garlic.
  3. Once they’re well combined, mix the grated cucumber and most of the dill into the mixture by hand – that’s your Tzatiki.
  4. Season and cook the steaks – heating each side for upwards of 3 minutes depending on how well done you’d like it to be.
  5. Let the steaks sit a little while, then spread the Tzatiki on the breads, place each steak on top of the bread, top with a few slices of tomato and red onion and sprinkle the remaining dill on top.
  6. Enjoy!
