Jerusalem mixed grill (Hebrew: מעורב ירושלמי‎) (me'orav Yerushalmi) is a grilled meat dish considered a specialty of Jerusalem, Israel. It consists of chicken hearts, spleens and liver mixed with bits of lamb cooked on a flat grill, seasoned with onion, garlic, juniper berries, black pepper, cumin, turmeric and coriander.[1]

The dish is said to be have been invented at the Mahane Yehuda Market, with various steakhouses claiming to be the originators.

In 2009, Israeli chefs created a giant portion that weighed in at 440 pounds (200 kilos), winning a Guinness world record for the largest Jerusalem mixed grill. They also prepared the world's smallest dish: Jerusalem mixed grill in a pita the size of a coin.[2]

According to Haaretz food critic Daniel Rogov, world-renowned chefs have pleaded with Sima, one of the steakhouses, for the recipe, which includes a secret ingredient described as "Georgian pepper."[1]
