Australian flat iron steak shawarma



Prep Time

15 mins

Cook Time

15 mins


500g flat iron steak (thinly sliced)

5-6 tbsp hummus

3-4 tbsp tahini

1 Large red onion, thinly sliced

1 Large tomato, cut to cubes

Pinch of finely chopped parsley

Arabic style pickles

Saj Bread (one sheet per shawarma)

Salt to taste


  • Place the thinly sliced flat iron steak on a hot grill and season with salt.
  • Sear each side of the meat until it starts to colour and caramelize. This should only take a minute or two each side as the meat is so thinly sliced.
  • Take the meat off direct heat, and then cover with the lid and cook low and slow for around 10 minutes until deliciously tender.
  • Prepare a sheet of the saj bread by spreading 1 tbsp of hummus and 2 tbsp tahini first, and then placing the thinly sliced red onion, tomato, parsley and pickles on the bread.
  • Then take the tender Flat Iron Steak off the grill and add to the prepared saj bread.
  • Fold over the bottom longest edge first, then the sides and finally roll the saj bread and enjoy!
