Red Meat “Shawarma” Spices

Post by Sami's Kitchen

Shawarma is one of the most popular meat dishes in the Middle East. It is traditionally grilled on a large rotating spit and sliced into a wrap with Tahini sauce. At home, you can simply barbecue or stir fry the marinated meat.

An alternative method is to rub or marinate the meat, then cook in the oven with your favourite vegetables. You could use larger pieces of meat, such as a Lamb Backstrap or Beef Sirloin.

Lamb is typically favored in the Middle East, although the Sami’s Kitchen Shawarma blend is also excellent with Beef and most red meats.

How to use this blend:
Add 3 tbsp (30g) spices to 1kg Lamb or Beef…
For an authentic flavour: add 1/4 cup (60ml) Oil, 45ml Vinegar, 45ml Lemon Juice, salt
For a modern twist: add 60ml Oil, 1 tsp Garlic, 1 tsp Wholegrain Mustard, salt to taste

Serving suggestions:

  • Sprinkle into Beef mince for delicious burger patties
  • Marinate Beef kebabs and grill or BBQ
  • Marinate Lamb back strap and serve with sauteed vegetables
  • Run into Lamb leg or shoulder before roasting or slow cooking

Size: 45g resealable stand-up pouch.

Ingredients: Pimento, Black Pepper, Mustard, Cumin, Ginger, Cardamom, Coriander, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Cloves.
