  1. Place the sliced beef into a flat, ovenproof dish. Stir the red wine vinegar, 1/2 cup olive oil, lemon juice, allspice, cinnamon, cardamom, black pepper, salt, tomatoes and garlic together in a bowl until well blended. Pour over the beef, turning slices to coat evenly. Cover, and refrigerate 4 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  3. Remove the cover from the dish with the beef, and cook in preheated oven until the meat is no longer pink, about 50 minutes. Cool slightly.
  4. Meanwhile, make the parsley sauce by mixing the parsley, sweet onion, and 1/2 cup olive oil together in a bowl. Place the tomatoes in a bowl, and set aside until needed.
  5. Make the tahini sauce by mixing the garlic, tahini, lemon juice, and water together in a bowl. Season to taste with salt.
  6. To serve, place the pita bread rounds on serving plates. Spoon some of the meat mixture down the center of each pita round. Top with the parsley mix, tomatoes, and tahini sauce. Roll up the sides of the pita bread around the filling, and serve.

I'm 100% Lebanese this dish is also known as Shawarma...for a nice kick add a little orange juice or some orange peel in the marinade (true Lebanese secret)

it was good we used chicken instead of beef but other than that followed it to a T. we'll make it again my husband was a HUGE fan.

This was restaurant-quality deliciousness! My only complaints are that the meat was nearly over-cooked at the 30-minute mark, and for some reason there was a lot of liquid that came from either ...
