This is an ABSOLUTE favourite in our house, and since discovering this recipe and tweaking it to make sure it is perfect, we have enjoyed delicious kebabs at home for a fraction of the cost.
Homemade Lamb Doner Kebab
Serves 2 Adults (2 medium sized kebabs)
425g Fresh (not frozen) Lamb Mince (400 - 500g of mince is fine depending on the packet size you buy)
1 Tsp Dried Oregano
Half Tsp Dried Italian Herbs (Mixed Herbs or Herbs D'Province are fine)
1 Tsp Garlic Powder or Granules
Quarter Tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 Tsp Salt (Leaving salt out isn't nice - I tried it!)
Half Tsp Ground Black Pepper
To serve: Pitta Bread, Salad and Chips
- Mix all thoroughly by hand in a bowl and shape into a loaf. The more you mix it, and the smoother it is, the more it will taste authentic!
- Put into slow cooker for 2 hours on High, no need for oil or anything in the slow cooker.
- When it is done the juices will run clear and the outside will be browned slightly. Don't overcook as it will be dry.
- Slice thinly, and serve warm.
Tip: If I have 400g of meat in my slow cooker it takes about 1 hour 45 mins, and it takes a little longer in one of my other slow cooker so they do vary - keep an eye on it and if you have a meat thermometer then this is perfect for checking if it's done. You can also double the quantity as if you are feeding a family this won't go very far. Remember, you do not need to adjust the cooking time if doubling the quantity. I haven't tried it multiplying it any more than double but I'm sure it could be done with a little extra time cooking.
