You will be pleasantly surprised at how similar this tastes to the shawarma (gyros) that is sold in our local restaurants. Mix the following together :

1) 3/4 of a cup of ground beef or lamb

2) 1 clove of garlic, finely minced

3) 1/2 tsp of dried oregano

4) Sprinkle of fresh cracked pepper

5) Salt to taste

6) Plastic wrap

7) 2 pita pockets

8) lettuce, sliced tomatoes and onions (if desired)

For the cucumber sauce, mix the following:

1) ) grate 1/4 of an English cucumber

2)  1 cup of either sour cream or youghurt

3) 1 tsp of vinegar

4) salt to taste

5) sprinkle of dried mint

7) sprinkle of fresh ground pepper

Let’s  make the shawarma meat:

Take the meat mixture, from above, and place in between a folded plastic wrap. With a rolling pin, roll it out as thin as desired. I like mine rather thin.

Place in the freezer for about half an hour. It should be completely frozen.

Remove the plastic wrap–and with a scissors cut into strips.

I use the kitchen scissors to cut them into strips. Then place them either in a frying pan–without any oil, they will excrete some on their own– or place under the broiler.They take no more than 5 min to cook. Take them out, and cut them into smaller pieces and assemble your pita pocket sandwiches as desired.
