The dish is said to have been invented at the Mahane Yehuda Market, with various restaurants 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 the late Haaretz food critic Daniel Rogov, world-renowned chefs have pleaded with one of the steakhouses, Sima,[3] for the recipe which includes a secret ingredient described as "Georgian pepper".[1]

A variation of the dish may have the meorav yerushalmi thinly chopped and then rolled into a phyllo shaped cigars which is then fried, it is common to serve Meorav Yerushalmi that way in weddings.
