Doner Kebab Recipe

Even if you don’t have a rotating spit, you can still make a pretty tasty doner kebab from home, using a steak, some marinade and your oven.

Add the meat to a warmed pita, top with tzatziki, hummus, tomato, cucumber, olives, shredded lettuce and feta and you’ve got yourself a delicious doner “donair” sandwich.

This recipe requires time for marinating (a few hours to overnight) and about 45 minutes to cook the meat. It make enough meat for about 4-6 sandwiches.

Ingredients Needed for Marinade:

• ¼ cup red wine vinegar
• ¼ cup olive oil
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice
• ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
• ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
• ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
• 1 clove garlic, minced
• Salt and pepper to taste.
• 2 pounds steak (inexpensive cuts work well as you’ll be thinly slicing and marinating them)

Slice the steak into very thin slices.

Place all the marinade ingredients into a bowl or container with a lid and mix well. Add the steak and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.

Place the marinade and steak into an oven-safe dish with a lid and place in the oven at 350 F for about 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, remove the steak from the marinade and prepare to serve.
