    I found this very tasty. Next time I make it I will not do it in Pita Bread, I am going to try it with veggies and potatoes or rice. Very nice thank you Irene  -  26 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was awesome! It was easy to make and a really nice flavor. I took it easy on the spice in the marinade but only because my husband is not crazy about really hot food. But I added a few drops on the shwarma itself, mmmmmmm I did BBQ it and it turned out good. I added a mix of chopped onion, cucumber, yellow bell pepper, grape tomatoes, and baby spinach. Seasoned it with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. This was a perfect summer meal that was easy to make!!  -  14 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
