EGYPTION - Shawarma-Style Lamb Pita

By ali eletre

Ingredients
  • Ingredients

  • • 2 lbs of lamb stew meat, 2 inch cubes

  • • 3 cloves of minced garlic

  • • 1/2 tsp cayenne

  • • 1/2 tsp paprika

  • • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • • 1/2 tsp cumin

  • • 3/4 tsp mace

  • • 3/4 tsp salt

  • • 1/2 lemon juiced

  • • 1/2 cup plain yogurt

Directions
  1. Prepare the Lamb

  2. It's the yogurt that's going to tenderize this meat. The mace gives it that signature shawarma-spiced, kind of Middle Eastern flavor. We're going to marinate this for 12-24 hours. I can't you exactly, but if your meat is smaller you may go 12 hours, if it was as big as mine I went 24. We're going to put those on a foil wrapped pan, and boil on high for about 5 minutes per side. It depends on the size. I like it a little pink inside.

  3. Tahini Sauce Ingredients

  4. Now for the tahini sauce or dressing:

  5. • 1/2 clove minced garlic

  6. • 1 tbsp lemon juice

  7. • 2 tbsp tahini, which is a sesame seed paste

  8. • pinch of salt

  9. • 2 tbsp cold water
