This dish is actually Lebanese by origin and apparently it’s not unusual for hummus to be served loaded with something. I absolutely love that concept as I love hummus and beef.
So here’s my take on it! I used this beautiful blend of shawarma seasoning that I recently picked up. I used 1 and a half to 2 teaspoons of it and it was just perfect. I can be pretty heavy handed when it comes to spices but I also believe less is more when cooking with red meat. Its nice to sometimes allow the flavour of meat to come through.
I hope you try and enjoy this simple yet delicious recipe.
