Homemade doner kebabs are the latest viral trend and making them couldn’t be easier

THERE’s no better way to end a night out than with a greasy doner kebab, but it’s no secret that they’re not exactly good for you.

However, savvy mums are creating their own tasty versions at home using fresh ingredients – and they swear they're just as good as the real thing.

Taking to the Facebook group Slow Cooker Recipe & Tips, mums have been sharing recipes for the fast food cheat.

They recommend simply combing lamb mince with seasoning and then form it into a loaf shape before wrapping in tin foil.

Either cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 3-4, and that’s it, ready to serve along with your favourite salad, pitta and tzatziki.

Best of all, by using a slow cooker you can leave the dinner to cook itself meaning you can get on with the rest of your day.

How to make your own kebabs at home


  • 1kg lamb mince
  • 2 teaspoons mixed herbs
  • 3 teaspoons onion salt
  • 3 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


Mix lamb mince and all above ingredients together.

Form into a loaf shape.

Wrap in baking paper or foil (optional)

Place directly in slow cooker (no liquid needed)

Cook on LOW for 5-6 hours OR

HIGH for 3-4 hours (depending on your slow cooker)

When cooked, let rest for 10-15 mins.

Slice thinly.

Serve with lettuce, tomato, red onion, cheese and sauce of your choice

Many have been keen to try out the recipe themselves, with one mum revealing how she achieved the signature kebab shreds of meat using a potato peeler.

She wrote: “Sooo I used a potato peeler to shred the kebab. And the salad is just standard salad. But the red cabbage and slaw type stuffis brought from Tesco’s. £1 a pot!”

Commenting on the post another said: “I followed this last night and it was wonderful. Thank you.”

“I had this tonight and it was delicious” agreed a third, with another adding, “Tasted amazing.”
