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.
I probably take it a step further with my own Tzatiki, so if you prefer to buy your own, you can skip steps 2 and 3.
What you need
- 2/3 cup greek yogurt
- 1 1/2 tsp olive oil
- tsp lemon juice
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/2 cucumber, grated
- 1 tsp fresh dill, chopped
- 2 pieces (60 g) naan bread (or your preference here, but we like to go with 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
- Place a frying pan on your stove and turn it on to warm up.
- In a blender, combine the yogurt, oil, the lemon juice, and the garlic.
- Once they’re well combined, mix the grated cucumber and most of the dill into the mixture by hand — that’s your Tzatiki.
- Season and cook the steaks — heating each side for upwards of 3 minutes depending on how well done you’d like it to be.
- 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. Enjoy!
