2 lbs boneless beef chuck roast, cut in half

2 tablespoons ground cumin

1 tablespoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

1⁄2 teaspoon ground allspice

1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1⁄2 teaspoon ground ginger

1⁄4 teaspoon ground cloves

1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne

1⁄4 cup olive oil

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 head garlic, cut in half

10 pieces pita bread

3 plum tomatoes, sliced

1 small red onion, sliced

1 small cucumber, sliced

1⁄2 bunch flat leaf parsley, chopped

1 cup store bought hummus

1⁄4 cup tahini


In a large bowl combine all the spices with the olive oil and red wine vinegar. Add the chuck roast and garlic turning the beef multiple times to make sure it is fully coated. Cover and allow to marinate for at least 4 hours up to overnight.

Place the chuck roast into the slow cooker along with 1 cup of water. Seal the lid on top of the Instant Pot. Set the cook time on Manual for 90 minutes on High. Allow the pressure to release for 10 minutes once the beef has cooked.

Remove the beef to a rimmed baking sheet or bowl and shred with two forks. Add about ½ cup of the reserved cooking liquid to the shredded beef. Season the beef with salt and pepper to taste.

Build sandwiches by spreading hummus on the pita. Top with beef and add garnishes to your liking.
