Easy Homemade Sirloin Beef Shawarma Recipe

Get ready for a flavor-packed meal inspired by classic Middle Eastern street food. You may have tried my chicken shawarma recipe on the website, cooked on a vertical spit.

Today, I'm excited to share my beef version, made using the best cut of beef and a homemade shawarma seasoning with warm spices. This easy recipe brings you a taste of the popular street food experience in the comfort of your own kitchen. The best part? You don't need any special equipment; you can easily cook thin slices of meat on your stovetop.

Whether you choose to serve this homemade beef shawarma alongside fragrant rice or with a side of french fries, make it into a shawarma sandwich, a beef shawarma wrap, or simply place it in a pita pocket, you're in for a popular Middle Eastern street food experience. Pair it with classic tahini sauce, tzatziki sauce, or a refreshing cucumber salad. Fresh veggies and flavorful sauces perfectly complement the shawarma meat, and for an authentic touch, you can add Lebanese pickles, pickled onions, and a hint of garlic sauce.

Instructions

1. Use a sharp knife to thinly slice sirloin steak against the grain into thin strips, approximately 2 inches long.

Transfer beef strips to a large bowl or dish.
2. Top sliced meat with finely grated garlic cloves, freshly squeezed lemon juice, ground cumin, ground coriander, paprika, onion powder, turmeric, ground cloves, cayenne pepper, ground cinnamon, avocado oil, and salt.

3. You can cook it right away, but for the best flavor, let it marinate for about 30 minutes. This allows the flavors to infuse into the beef, enhancing the overall taste.
4. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the marinated beef to the hot skillet, spreading it out evenly. Depending on the size of your skillet, you may need to cook beef in batches to prevent overcrowding. Cook the beef for approximately 4-6 minutes on each side, totaling 8-12 minutes of cooking time, until the liquid evaporates and the beef becomes golden brown.
