Jerusalem Mixed Grill Recipe

Popular street food in Jerusalem, Jerusalem Mixed Grill is a grill meat dish mixed with chicken breast, organ heart, and liver meat. It is best served with pita bread and dipping hummus.

However, there is one particular Israeli dish that I find mouthwatering and flavorful, despite the fact that, in my opinion, Israeli foods are almost identical to other Middle Eastern and Levantine cuisines.

The sliced onion is sauteed with spices to add flavor to the meat dish, making Jerusalem Mixed Grill one of my favorite dishes because it is full of different spices and suitable for the keto diet.

In my experience, I like to add green or Middle Eastern salads to my pita bread to balance my diet since it is a heavy protein dish that you eat with pita bread and hummus / tahini dipping sauce.

I will be sharing with you my adaptation of this halal and kosher-acceptable Israeli meat recipe because I adore it.

You cannot make this dish without the organ meat as they are the main star of this recipe. I. MEATS: I am adding boneless chicken breast, liver, and heart to this recipe.

Cumin, coriander, paprika, turmeric, and curry powder are the five main spices you’ll need for this recipe, and they’ll all help the meat taste delicious.

III. OTHER INGREDIENTS: The sliced onion is one of the most crucial ingredients because it will improve the flavor and make the meat very tasty. You’ll also need minced garlic, extra virgin olive oil for sautéing, and extra virgin olive oil.
