Slice your beef in thin strips, to enable it cook evenly and to keep it soft. (you can slice beef across the grain to tenderize).
Add all seasoning and oil into the beef then coat beef in the seasoning and allow to marinate for about 5 minutes.
Put your frying pan on medium heat, when hot, add in the seasoned beef strips. Separate them in singles so they cook evenly. Keep stirring till all sides have fried and the beef is no longer pink. (do not over cook your beef)
Take out beef from the frying pan, then add in green peppers and onions slices, then add in salt and black pepper, stir inn and allow to fry for about a minute or two, we don’t want want them to be too crunchy or too soft.
When onions and pepper have cooked a bit, take them out and set aside. Then add sausage,also add in a little oil to help the sausage cook. Turn sausage on all side for 20-30 seconds to allow it properly cook.
While onion, green peppers and sausage is cooling, in a bowl add in ketchup, mayonnaise,lemon juice, some black peppers and then mix together till its all even.
Open up pita bread gently to create two layers from one piece. Then place the imperfect layer over the perfect one (make sure the inner part on both layers are facing up).
Cover the base of the bread in the sauce, then add in your beef, pepper, onions and sausage, you can top it with some more sauce if you want. (Make sure your filling is not too much for the bread, so its easy to wrap.
Lift both ends of the first layer bread and wrap them to cover the filling, move the first layer wrap that is now filled, towards to part of the second layer bread that is facing you, then wrap the second layer over the first wrap till the bread is completely wrapped around the first layer wrap , then tuck in the top ends and your shawarma is done.
Serve with some chicken, fries or you favorite drink and Enjoy.
