What is Shawarma?
Shawarma is a popular Middle Eastern meal that is made from marinated meat, such as lamb, beef, and chicken. It is one of the world’s most popular street foods, especially in Egypt, and is now a staple at most Middle Eastern restaurants. Shawarma is a mouth-watering meal that is sure to please food and meat lovers.
How is Shawarma Made?
Shawarma is marinated with various seasonings and spices such as cumin, turmeric, and paprika. It is made by stacking thinly sliced meat, typically lamb, beef, or chicken, on a large rotating skewer or cone. It is also sometimes cooked with extra fat from the meat to give it a juicer taste. The shawarma stack is rotated slowly for hours as it cooks in front of a heat source that continuously roasts the outer layer.
Why is shawarma cooked vertically?
Shawarma is cooked vertically on a skewer that rotates for hours. By stacking the meat and roasting it vertically, the meat marinates in its own fat as it cooks. This makes shawarma soft, tender, and delicious!
What kind of meat is shawarma made of?
Shawarma can be made from any kind of meat! In most cases, Beef or Chicken is used to make Shawarma, but other popular meats used to make Shawarma include Lamb, Goat, and Turkey. No matter what type of meat is used, Shawarma is prepared and served in the same way.
At Basha’s Shawarma, we serve both Beef and Chicken Shawarma.
