Holy smokes, that is a tasty sandwich! I managed to find the amba and israeli pickles at the HolyLand Market in NYC. All the components are simple, but the entire thing is a taste sensation. I added some red schug to the mix, too, which was delicious.
I am not sure you should take food and eating related advice from anyone who claims to have not had a good eating experience in Spain.
Really tasty. I had to add a bit more sugar and a tad more tomato sauce, but overall a lot a bang for a little effort. Served over red lentils.
A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Second only to Halal Cart Chicken in terms of the best recipes on Serious Eats. I probably made this every other day when corn was fresh. So good. I make a double recipe every time.
Honestly, this is one of the best recipes on the site. I make the sauce differently (replace the mayo with more yogurt) but I have probably made this at least 20 times. My husband LOVES it.
This was really easy and the flavors were amazingly complex for such an simple preparation. I agree with John Levon about the pesto- it takes about 2 minutes to make fresh pesto and it is totally worth it- I've never met a jarred pesto that tasted like pesto should: FRESH.
As a fan of larb, I found the flavors disappointing. Overall the dish was very beefy, and the flavor paste was almost lost to the meat flavors. It was also crying for some acid. Not bad, just not great.
