Can I Keep Shawarma in The Fridge?

You’ve ordered shawarma and you can’t finish it! Can you refrigerate it and save it for later? The answer is yes! Shawarma can be refrigerated and is safe to eat for up to four days. If you cannot eat your shawarma within four days, you can also freeze shawarma and reheat it when you are ready to eat it.

Can I Reheat My Leftover Shawarma Sandwich?

Yes! To reheat your shawarma sandwich, wrap your sandwich in foil and place it in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until the meat is warm again throughout. The amount of time to reheat your shawarma will vary depending on your oven, so be sure to check on it every 5 minutes or so.

Wrapping the sandwich in foil helps keep the moisture locked in so that the shawarma does not dry out, after all its juicy flavour is what makes it delicious! If you want to avoid your veggies and other toppings from wilting, you can always remove them and put them back in your sandwich after heating.


How Long Does Shawarma Roast For?

The amount of time that it takes to cook shawarma depends on a variety of factors, including how much meat you are cooking, as well as the appliances you are using. If you are roasting shawarma with a restaurant-grade rotisserie grill, it can take about 1.5 hours to roast the outer layer. When the shawarma is ready to be served, the outer layer is cut, and the process is repeated with the remaining meat. The time it takes to cook the inner layers varies.

Can I Make Shawarma at Home?

Of course! If you are interested in making shawarma at home, you have a few options for how to cook it. While you may not have the space for a large shawarma grill, you can purchase a countertop rotisserie grill that will allow you to slow-roast your shawarma. Another way you can cook shawarma at home is by using the stovetop method, where you cook your shawarma meat in a wok or frying pan on the stove.
