We’ve all seen the Schwarma scene at the end of the first Avenger’s movie, right? That was the point when I started wondering what Schwarma was. I live and work in what could be considered small towns and because of this, don’t get to the “big city” very often, so I don’t generally have access to a large variety of international cuisine. Enter, Google. Research told me it sounded super yummy, so when I ran across a Schwarma food truck, I absolutely HAD to try it.
Holy mother of all things sacred!! It was SOOOOO good! I’ll admit, I devoured that lamb wrap like a pack of wild dogs on a scared rabbit. Then, I went back and got a second one that I could take apart and investigate the ingredients. The following meal was a result of that investigation and some tinkering.
Lamb (leftover from the roast)
Gordita Style Tortilla Shells
Pico de Gallo
Cucumber/Dill Greek Yogurt Dressing
Chop off some bite size pieces of your leftover lamb roast and reheat it. I chose to do this in a frying pan, but you could probably just microwave it too. Place meat inside your Gordita shell. Top with lettuce, pico de gallo and Cucumber/Dill Greek Yogurt Dressing.
Bam! You’re done. Ready to eat!
You could also add some sort of Basmati style flavored rice to this, but I was looking for a super quick dinner and chose not to.
