Filipino Style Shawarma Recipe to Fill You Up
The night is young and you’re not yet ready to hit the bed. Your rumbling stomach gets harder to ignore. What’s better than a hot, thick shawarma roll filled with grilled beef? This popular street food originated in the Middle East is customizable. With one shawarma recipe, you can mix it up by serving it as a wrap, on a plate, or as a sandwich — served with salads like tabbouleh or fattoush. For folks who prefer white meat instead of red meat, you’re free to switch the beef with chicken breasts.
So what makes an authentic shawarma recipe? The name itself refers to the meat preparation technique of stacking thin cuts of meats on a vertical rotisserie stick.
