This recipe really taste amazing, I made half recipe with beef and the other half with chicken. Tahini sauce is delicious. I used homemade flour tortillas instead of pita bread. I add lettuce too with the onions and tomatoes. After cooked I cut the meat in thin strips.

Pretty good but..., June 14, 2004 - 03:09 PM
Reviewer: Ben from Ottawa, Canada
2 Things: 1) Although this is a decent recipe, it pales in comparison to local Lebanese eateries that make Shawarma's. No comparison. 2) I actually found mixing half/half Tahini and Ranch dressing was better than just Tahini for the sauce. Just my humble opinion.
