Today we will leave forks and knives in the kitchen drawer and use our hands!
Be ready for a taste travel: here is the doner kebab, Casserole&Chocolat(e) style!
My kids often ask for doner kebab. Of course, as you may imagine, we have doner kebab restaurants in my city of Blois 😉 . But it’s definitely not the kind of place where you take time to eat, it’s no surprise that this kind of food is called fast food!
And I must say that I like to take my time when eating is concerned. I also like to make sure that my children eat good quality products even when they are having a rich meal.
So I decided to make my own doner kebab, Casserole&Chocolat(e) style!
And believe me or not (well … please believe me !! ), it turned out actually quite good with not as much fat as you could expect and fresh veggies (green lettuce, tomato, cucumber). So you might argue that I’m not being 100% honest since you’ve already seen the French fries on my pics!!!
Mea culpa ! It’s true, but they are homemade fries, so it doesn’t count!!
Result: it can not be anything else but success!!! Or you’ll get your money back!! 😉
My only recommendations are to have enough time to make the pita breads (you will need around 3 to 4 hours to proceed with the recipe). You can even make them a few days in advance, then freeze them once they have cooled down and then defrost them when the time comes. And also to think about the resting time for the meat to marinate.
This being said, my beef doner kebab, Casserole&Chocolat(e) style, is super easy to make!
A food processor to make the pita breads,
A frying pan for the meat,
And a few pair of hands to eat!!
Let’s do this!!
