  • 4 People


  • 350 g beef sirloin, thinly-sliced (tapa cut)
  • Marinade:
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 pc Knorr Beef Cube
  • 4 pcs calamansi, juiced
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • pinch ground black pepper
  • Garlic Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup Lady's Choice Real Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Fillings:
  • 1 pack medium flour tortillas or pita bread
  • 1 medium-sized white onion, sliced thinly
  • 3 pcs ripe tomatoes, deseeded and sliced thinly
  • 1/2 pc cucumber, peeled, deseeded and sliced into thin sticks
  • Optional: 1 pc singkamas, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 cup thinly sliced cabbage or iceberg lettuce or red cabbage
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese

  1. There are 3 steps in making this dish. First, you need to combine all the beef ingredients in a bowl. Mix well and marinate for at least 30 minutes.

  2. Second, prepare the sauce by combining all the sauce ingredients. Mix well and with the use of a funnel, transfer the mixture into a squeeze bottle and chill until ready to use.

  3. Let's start assembling the wraps. Get a grill pan or a flat frying pan and make it nice and hot over high heat. Drain the beef from the marinade and grill until cooked through. Do this in batches so the pan will not be overcrowded. Set aside to cool slightly.

  4. Once the beef is slightly cooled, chop into bite-sized pieces.

  5. The last step is to assemble the wraps.Heat tortilla or pita bread on a flat pan until slightly toasted. Transfer on a plate then put some of the filling in the middle part of the bread starting with the lettuce/cabbage, chopped beef, sliced tomatoes, onions, cucumber and singkamas, if using. Drizzle some sauce over and top with grated cheese. Roll and wrap in foil. Do the same with the rest of the ingredients dividing the fillings into the breads. And that's our dish! Over good conversations on the table, a game of chess or simply hanging out in the kitchen, Pinoy Shawarma is just so delightful to eat!
