Easy grilled Beef Shawarma is perfect to use in pita sandwiches, hummus bowls or on its own. Flank steak is marinated in a shawarma seasoning mix and grilled to perfection. The beef is tender and juicy and pairs nicely with a tahini sauce, fresh tomato and romaine and pickles in a pita sandwich.
Beef Shawarma is something that you find a lot in Lebanese restaurants or the kitchens of those that love Mediterranean food. It is the perfect meat to use in pita wraps, paired with hummus, in rice bowls or on its own with a variety of sides. If you frequent Lebanese restaurants you will probably see a Beef Shawarma Plate as an option on their menu. This is a plate of the beef shawarma usually paired with hummus and a Lebanese Salad or tabbouleh.
I grew up eating Beef Shawarma and love the warm, rich spices. Today’s recipe uses flank steak that is grilled and then thinly sliced. You will notice that the beef is marinated for 2 hours in a mixture of olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice and warm spices. The flavors that infuse into the beef are my favorite.
The Ohio Beef Council and I are teaming up to share this recipe in celebration of the 4th of July. It is the perfect recipe to make for a family gathering to celebrate the holiday.
