“This is my version of Turkish kebabs which I made 'off the cuff' after searching unsuccessfully for a recipe online. The original sandwiches are made from meat that is pressed into a loaf and grilled on a rotating spit. The meat is shaved off as it gets crispy and then put into a pita sandwich. My recipe calls for thin slices of meat to be marinated and then broiled to get the same effect without a huge rotating grill. Serve in a warmed pita with goat cheese, tzatziki sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and pepperoncinis.” - by RACHEY638
Original recipe yields 6 kebabs
- Place the chopped onions in a large ceramic bowl and crush with the bottom of a glass until juice is rendered and onions look translucent. Stir in 2 crushed garlic cloves, 1/2 cup olive oil, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, oregano, 1 teaspoon black pepper, turmeric, curry powder, and 1 teaspoon salt. Mix well; add the sliced beef and toss to coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
- Combine the sour cream, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, dill, and 1 crushed clove of garlic. Mix well; cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
- Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
- Remove the meat from the marinade mixture, brushing off extra onions. Spread the slices on a baking sheet without overlapping, and salt to taste. Broil about 3 minutes per side or until browned and crispy, turning halfway through cooking.
- Divide the cooked meat between the pita breads, and drizzle with tzatziki sauce to serve.

"I love it! After years in Turkey and Germany, I've also been looking for that elusive doner kebab. This recipe is the closest I've been able to get to it. Disregard the previous review...the reviewe..." See morer obviously isn't cultured enough."
"Very very tastey! I've had many many donar or as the Greeks say, gyros, and it's hard to find a great donar in Canada but I'll be making this over and over again. Our western kebabs are what the first..." See more comment describes but that's not the Turkish recipes. I also add tomato, red onion slices, and lettuce with the meat in the pita. Thanks RACHEY for this recipe!"
