Fakeaway slow cooker doner kebab 17



OK I am going to admit I am not a doner kebab person at all, in fact I don’t think I have ever had one – I have tried a little, but I was veggie for 14 years, but all the men of the house LOVE them.  So i decided to have a go at making our own fakeaway slow cooker doner kebab.  I had seen lots of recipes for slow cooker meatloafs made from beef mince, so knew that it would be pretty OK, what I wasn’t prepared for was just how much the family enjoyed it.

I knew that you could make doner kebab in the slow cooker as Cass from Frugal Family had done it in the past, but me being me I had to adapt it as I didn’t have everything she used in my cupboard!

I placed mine directly on to the bottom of the pan and it was fine, although some people suggest wrapping in tin foil or even placing on onions.

Place in a slow cooker on high for 3-4 hours or low for 7 hours.  Remove and allow to rest for 10-20 minutes before slicing as thinly as possible.  I have heard that you can achieve super thin slices with a vegetable peeler.

There was enough meat to make 10 kebabs (we had a friend over for dinner) and Maxi commented that he thought it was nicer than shop bought.  Value for money wise, it is AMAZING and I am happy making it as I am aware just what is in it.
