Shawarma is probably one of the most recognizable Middle Eastern ethnic food names in the West, behind Falafel and Hummus.

It is a favorite among many, adults and children alike. Today I made this mouth watering shawerma, thats on spot with the spices and so melts in your mouth thanks to my smart pot.

15 Minute Meat Shawerma

A perfect meat shawarma wrap with ingredients from your pantry. Ready in no time for a mid-week dinner.
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Course Sandwiches
Cuisine Arabic


  • Electric Pressure Cooker


For the Shawerma

  • 500 grams tenderloin cut into thin strips
  • 3 TBSP Meat Shawerma Spices from Bzuriyeh

For the Tahini Sauce

  • 1/2 Cup Tahini
  • 1/4 Cup Lemon Juice
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • Cold Water to thin Tahini Sauce

For the Sandwiches

  • 2 Tomatoes
  • 1 Large Onion
  • 1/2 - 1 TBSP Sumac
  • 6 Large Tortilla Bread
  • For the perfect slices I pressure cook in my nutricookworld for 10 minutes and then I sauté until all the liquid is absorbed.


  • Season your sliced beef tenderloin with the spices.
  • Although the meat is already cut thin, I like to have thinner, so I gently put it in a bag and flatten it further with a rolling pin.
  • Add a tablespoon of vegetable oil in your Electric pressure cooker.
  • Add seasoned meat, and make sure its distributed evenly.
  • Pressure cook for 10 minutes, do not sauté first - trust me on this one.
  • Mean while prepare your tahini sauce.
  • Whisk tahini, lemon juice, and garlic together in a small bowl until creamy. Thin down with cold water gradually as needed.
  • Also prepare your tomatoes and onions by cutting them thin. I use a mandoline for this task. I also season the onions with a TBSP of sumac. I would half it if you're trying it for the first time and adjust as I go.
  • By now the beef should be done. Release the pressure of your electric cooker and open the lid.
  • Click the sautee function and allow to cook until the liquid has dried up from the beef.
  • Spread 1 to 2 tablespoons tahini sauce in the center of each tortilla. Layer onion and tomato slices, and add the beef slices evenly among tortillas. Roll up tortillas
  • Preheat a panini press. Press rolled tortillas seam side-down until grill marks appear, about 2 minutes. Cut each tortilla into 4 to 5 piece, and serve.
