I forgot how much I liked lavash.

I remember my Iranian friend grilling strips of beef that had been marinated in yogurt, onions, lemon juice, salt and pepper, then brushed with saffron butter while grilling. When it was ready to eat, we wrapped pieces of meat in lavash. That is one of my favorite food memories.

Today I got some lavash and dipped pieces in hummus tahini, which was really good. Now I have to make that Iranian beef recipe again and wrap it in lavash :lips:

I don't have a recipe for that beef--my friend didn't use one either. Here's an approximation:

Marinade (multiply as needed)
1.5 cup plain yogurt
1 small yellow onion, grated
juice of 1 large lemon
1 t ground black pepper
salt? maybe wasn't used, just a pinch if it was

Saffron butter: melt a stick of butter, add a small pinch of saffron
Slice beef (sirloin would be good) into strips about a quarter to a third of an inch thick, and 1-1.5 inches wide. Put into a sealable bag and add enough marinade to coat the meat well. Seal the bag. Mix by squishing the meat around with your hands. Remove air from bag and reseal. Marinate 2-3 hours.

When just about ready to grill, make the saffron butter and keep it melted. Remove meat from marinade, clean off most of the marinade from the pieces, and skewer. While grilling the meat, brush a few times with saffron butter.
