  • 2 x Lamb Backstraps, 670g total
  • 6 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 8½ teaspoons Weber Greek Seasoning, divided

  • 4 flour wraps
  • 150 grams shop bought beetroot dip

Lamb backstrap is a deliciously tender cut of meat, paired with grilled sweet red onion, tangy beetroot dip and sharp feta – a satisfying combination of flavours and textures all wrapped up!

Prepare the barbecue for direct cooking over medium-high heat (210°C-250°C).
Lightly coat the backstraps with 2 teaspoons of olive oil and 6 teaspoons of Weber Greek Seasoning. Assemble the onion ring skewers. Lightly coat the onion skewers with the remaining 4 teaspoons of olive oil and 2 ½ teaspoons of Weber Greek Seasoning.
Once the barbecue has been preheated, brush the cooking grills clean with a wire brush. Grill the lamb backstraps over direct medium-high heat, with the lid closed, for 2 minutes per side. As lamb backstrap is best served medium rare to medium, cook until it reaches an internal temperature of 50C, then remove from the barbecue and leave it to rest for 5 minutes before slicing. While the lamb is cooking, grill the red onion skewers for 5 minutes per side, turning as needed.
While the lamb is resting, grill the flatbreads over direct medium-high heat, for 1 minute per side or until just toasted. Remove the red onion from the skewers, and roughly chop if desired.
Slice the lamb against the grain. Spread the beetroot dip inside the wrap, top with lettuce, sliced lamb, red onion and feta. Wrap up and enjoy.
