Slow Cooker Donor Kebab

I LOVE donor kebabs, especially with a load of chilli sauce and mayo on them. However, with the average chip shop kebab containing around 1000 calories (eek!) it’s not something I eat very often. What the ‘meat’ actually contain can be a bit dubious as well – probably best not to even think about it.

I’d come across lots of different recipes for this ‘fakeaway’ donor kebab, all with different ingredients and methods. Because I am the world’s laziest cook, I of course went for the easiest option – the slow cooker one, and as usual ended up adapting it a little (I never seem to have the right ingredients in!). When we had it, on pitta breads with salad (and chilli sauce!), it tasted just like a donor kebab – without all the grease! It took a few goes to get the timing right, but 5 hours on low seems to be perfect.

Slow Cooker Donor KebabI have no idea how many calories are in this, but if you used lean lamb mince I imagine it wouldn’t even be half of a chip shop one – and you know exactly what has gone into it!

  5. I would never of thought of that, looks really yummy. Kebabs are my hubby favourite so I think I might be making this very soon. Thanks for sharing xxx

  6. Home made food is always healthier and cheaper than shop bought. Being veggie – we often make veggie kebabs in the summer which we BBQ and have in pittas with salad.
