This Fakeaway Slow-Cooked Homemade Doner Kebab recipe is easy, diet friendly and above all SUPER TASTY! Make the doner meat in the slow cooker and serve it sliced with pita bread or salad and all your fave toppings.
For the Doner meat
500g beef mince
500g lamb mince
2-3 tbsp of Baharat Doner Seasoning
• Pita bread Lebanese pita bread preferably
• Sliced onions
• Shredded lettuce
• Shredded red cabbage
• Sliced tomatoes
- Put the beef mince in a large mixing bowl and break up using a wooden spoon. Sprinkle with the Baharat Doner Seasoning
- Mix Well, using your hands or the back of a spoon. For best results you might want to blitz everything in a food processor (or even a stand mixer) to create a paste – but this creates a lot of washing up so I don't usually bother!
- Shape the doner mix into a log shape and wrap tightly with two layers of foil.
- Scrunch two pieces of foil and place in the slow cooker. Use a skewer to poke a few holes into the meat roll and place in the crockpot. Cover and cook on low setting for 5-6 hours or until the meat registers 70C when checked with a meat thermometer.
- Allow the meat to cool slightly then carve thin slices using a sharp knife or a potato peeler. This is easier if your doner meat has rested in the fridge overnight.
- Pan fry the meat strips to warm up if you like. Serve with toasted pita bread or my easy two ingredient flatbreads.
- If you're sharing this recipe with the kids, you might want to cut down on the cayenne pepper, as it makes it pretty spicy! On the other hand, if you like it REALLY hot, you could always add in some fresh chillies, too!
- Squash the meat together tightly before cooking, to ensure it keeps its shape.
- Don't skip the resting part! It'll make the kebab much easier to slice.
