I used a lamb roast to make souvlaki last night and added your seasoning mix to the lamb strips. I cut the salt in half, omitted the cinnamon and saffron, and added 1 teaspoon chili powder. The resulting mix tasted exactly like the spices on the chicken shawarma wraps from one of my favorite restaurants, Jerusalem Gardens in Ann Arbor, MI. Delicious!
I enjoyed this. It is like a middle eastern gyro. I used two blade cuts, trimmed the fat and ground them up in the food processor (they were on sale.) I didn't form the patties, but just let the meat be loose. I did add cucumber to the sauce.
Can I just say that everyone is sleeping on this recipe. I totally shocked my husband at dinnertime. Definitely a keeper, I used naan bread instead and cucumbers and onions. I will try pita next time. Thank you!
I just made the lamb patties from this recipe and loved the seasoning. Absolutely tops. They are great in a pita or on their own with a dip. Really nice mix of spices.
