Donair Meat... It's not low fat, even using lean beef. This is a treat that should be eaten rarely, but it's sooooo good. Donair Meat... It's not low fat, even using lean beef. This is a treat that should be eaten rarely, but it's sooooo good.
Number of Servings: 8


    3 pounds extra lean hamburger (triple ground*)
    3/4 cup bread crumbs
    2 tsp pepper
    1-2 tsp cayenne red pepper (depending on your taste)
    1 1/2 tsp oregano
    3 tsp paprika
    2 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp salt


*Try to get your butcher to run the meat through the grinder a few times. A food processor will do the trick also.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Knead for 20 minutes. Shape into two tightly formed loaves. Bake on broiler pan for 2 to 2 1/2 hours at 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Cool loaves and slice into thick slabs. Meat can be frozen for future use. If (like me) you are not fortunate enough to own your own rotary-stick-cooker thing like the ones in the good shops, you may find that the inner parts of the loaf are not browned enough. This can be remedied by re-heating the meat in a frying pan. This browns it nicely and gives it that slightly chewier texture.

Heat donair meat in a frying pan. Dip a pita bread in water and fry in frying pan to soften (this is VERY important). Place a generous amount of sauce on bread. Top with meat, chopped onions and tomatoes and finish off with lots more sauce (recipe is separate). Put on some old clothes, then roll up or serve open face on a plate.

This is so much healthier that getting it from takeout, where they don't use the extra lean beef. I also add lettuce, and sometimes low fat cheese
