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 meatloaves 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 can now promise you that this will be the only Lamb Kebab Recipe you need.
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!

Method for Fakeaway slow cooker doner kebab
Put all your herbs and spices into a pestle and mortar and give them a good pounding.
Place your lamb mince into a large bowl and sprinkle on the herbs and spices.
Mix thoroughly with your hands until all the ingredients are combined. Now you need to shape your meat into a loaf shape.
Really compress the meat hard as you want it to form into a sliceable block.
I placed mine directly onto the bottom of the pan and it was fine, although some people suggest wrapping it in tin foil or even placing it 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 of lamb kebab with a vegetable peeler.
As quick as I could slice it, Maxi was pinching it!
Serve in pitta breads with salad.
As you can see they get the Maxi seal of approval! But they don’t just get the seal of approval from my family. I receive more comments on this recipe than any other and people love it.
This is the perfect Lamb Kebab RecipeDave P
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. Money wise, it is AMAZING value and I am happy making it as I am aware of just what is in it.
This is THE BEST homemade doner kebab I have ever made, It is a regular treat and my family love itSamantha
