Homemade Lamb Doner Kebab

 Constant Comfort - Food for the Soul

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


  1. 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!
  2. Put into slow cooker for 2 hours on High, no need for oil or anything in the slow cooker.
  3. When it is done the juices will run clear and the outside will be browned slightly. Don't overcook as it will be dry.
  4. Slice thinly, and serve warm.
  5. Enjoy!
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.
