Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Peel, then cut onion into 1/4-inch pieces. Heat a medium pot over medium heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then half the onions. Cook, stirring often, until onions soften slightly, 1-2 min. Add rice and 2 tsp Shawarma Spice Blend (dbl for 4 ppl) to the pot. Cook, stirring often, until toasted, 2-3 min. Add 1 1/4 cups water (dbl for 4 ppl) and bring to a boil over high. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.
Meanwhile core, then cut pepper into 1/4-inch pieces. Cut tomatoes into 1/4-inch pieces. Cut cucumber into 1/4-inch pieces.
Whisk together vinegar, 2 tbsp oil and 1/4 tsp sugar (dbl both for 4 ppl) in a large bowl. Add tomatoes and cucumbers. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Set aside.

Heat the same pan over medium-high. When hot, add 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then beef. Cook, breaking up beef into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.** Carefully drain and discard excess fat. Add half the garlic puree, remaining Shawarma Spice Blend, remaining onions and 2 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl). Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until onions soften slightly, 2-3 min.
