Middle Eastern Roast Lamb or Turkey (Shawarma) Preparation
Source: "The World of Jewish Entertaining" by Gil Marks P.167 1. Combine the garlic, salt, black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and cayenne. Stir in the water, lemon juice, vinegar, oil, onion and lemon slices. Rub the marinade over the meat, place in the refrigerator and let stand overnight. 2. Remove meat from the refrigerator and let come to room temperature. 3. Preheat an outdoor grill, preferable with a rotisserie, or an electric rotisserie. 4. Stack the slices of meat, placing the larger pieces on the bottom, on a spit. Place the spit on the rotisserie or grill and roast. 5. As the exterior of the meat browns, slice it off across the outside, cutting through all the layers to create shreds. Return the spit to the grill and continue browning and slicing the cooked meat. Wrap the strips of meat in lavash or stuff into a pita, adding, if desired, any combination of shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, chopped onions and pitted olives.
