Schwarma… It’s whats for dinner!

Schwarma-1

Schwarma! A funny name for aΒ  Savory wrap made by Middle Eastern street vendors. I found this recipe several years ago and after adding my own all-American touch to this dish(Ranch dressing ;), it became a smashing dinner hit! Super quick and simple. Choose between chicken, steak, or Lamb depending on which is preferred! I choose to make my own flatbread but if you want to speed up the dinner prep, grab a package of premade flatbread at your local grocery story!

  • 1 1/2 lb cooked Chicken, steak, or Lamb seasoned to taste! (I use lots of garlic, rosemary, paprika, salt, & pepper!)
  • 8 (6-inch) Flat/pita breads, warmed
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 onion, thinly diced
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1 cucumber, thinly diced
  • Ranch!!

Directions

To assemble the schwarma, Thinly shave/slice meat, spread each flat bread with a tablespoon of plain yogurt, and layer with onion, tomato, and cucumber. Pile on the meat, and dress with Ranch dressing. Repeat with remaining flat bread and ENJOY!!

    Oh my!! I didn’t see this comment come in. πŸ™‚ Okay, I have been making it so long I don’t really have a recipe. I just “eye” everything. Let me see if I can get the measurements down:
    1 cup mayonnaise
    2 TBS Apple Cider Vinegar(I use a bit more as I really likes the flavor)
    3TBS milk(may need more to make nice dressing consistency)
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp onion powder
    1/2 tsp dill weed
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper

    I usually put all ingredients into a jar and shake well! πŸ™‚

Leave a comment and make my day! :)
