Slimming World Homemade Doner Kebab. Let me show you how easy it is to make a homemade doner kebab in the slow cooker, that is not only delicious, but totally Syn Free on Slimming World too.
Yes! You can count me in. I love homemade doner kebabs and the more frequently the better! I am part of the doner kebab appreciation society!
If I was at therapy I could blame my mother for it, after all she introduced me to them. Every now and again we would ring up for a takeaway. While my dad had pieces of chicken and chips (think KFC), my mum and I would share a doner kebab. We would lay on our tummys and watch a good Eddie Murphy movie and munch away on our Doner Kebabs!
The Doner Kebabs we bought were always so big you could never manage one on your own. We would have it with some fries and it always tasted amazing.
When I met Dominic, I never had them as he hated them and I had no one to share them with. Or as Dominic put it, they smelt like sweaty feet and who is going to eat that processed rubbish???
Well me of course, well until then!
So back in the UK Kyle and I walked down to the takeaway and I introduced him to his first ever Best of British Doner Kebab.
And vowed that when we got home, I would show him how to make a homemade doner kebab in the slow cooker.
Well it took me a while as we munched our way through doner kebabs from the takeaway back in July and here it is going on the blog in the following January!
Homemade Doner Kebab In The Slow Cooker
Homemade Doner Kebabs are amazing and oh so simple to make. I would compare them to making meatballs or meatloaf, that’s just how easy homemade doner kebabs are.
There is no deep explaining to do.
You mix together your minced lamb with your seasoning. Make it into a tight loaf, (similar to a meatloaf) and wrap it as tight as you can in silver foil. Then place it into your slow cooker and let your slow cooker cook it on slow, until you have perfectly cooked lamb doner meat.
As it cooks in the slow cooker, it even smells just like a doner kebab. You would think you were in the takeaway waiting for a professional doner kebab. Not that you’re at home making your own homemade doner kebab fakeaway.
Grab yourself some minced lamb, seasoning from your pantry, some pitta breads and let’s get cooking delicious homemade doner kebabs. Just like the takeaway, but healthier and much lower in calories.
You can also finish them off with a doner kebab side salad and Greek sauce if you like!
Slimming World Doner Kebabs
I never had Slimming World in mind when I made my homemade doner kebabs, so I was quite surprised that they came in at ZERO SYN. As long as you use up your healthy extras for the Pitta Breads then they are fine for Slimming World.
Also, because of how lean minced lamb is, it tastes fat free and doesn’t have that horrible greasy taste to it.
You can also bulk up your Slimming World Doner Kebabs with extra salad or have them like I had mine with a Greek dip.
Helpful Tools For Making Homemade Doner Kebabs In The Slow Cooker
Pitta Breads – I like to have quality pitta breads as to me its all about the pitta bread. I love to fill mine to bursting on a night, or at lunch time with just some doner meat and Greek sauce.
Bobs Red Mill – I am a HUGE fan of Bob’s Red Mill and his amazing gluten free products. In a classic homemade doner kebab you will use plain flour to combine everything. To make mine healthy I used Bob’s Oat flour, which is the same as blending some oats. BUT because they are gluten free, they won’t make you bloated.
My Slow Cooker – This is the exact slow cooker that I used to make my homemade doner kebab and I use it all the time. Also, its big enough to stack pitta breads around it to warm them up before serving.
- 3 Tbsp Fat Free Greek Yoghurt
- ½ Small Lemon juice only
- ½ Garlic Clove minced´
- ½ Tsp Mint
- Place into a bowl all the doner kebab ingredients and mix well until the minced lamb is evenly seasoned.
- Wrap it in a very tight layer of silver foil and place it into your slow cooker.
- Cook on high in the slow cooker for 3 hours, or on low for 5.5 hours.
- Mix together the Greek sauce ingredients and place in the fridge for later.
- When cooked remove it from the silver foil and use a sharp knife to very thinly slice it.
- Serve it inside warm pitta breads with Greek sauce.
If on Slimming World you can use your healthy extra Bs towards the gluten free oat flour and the pitta breads.
I always add the pitta breads to the top of the slow cooker 30 minutes before serving and it warms them up and gives me a lovely doner kebab scent. If you want it with less heat then change it to a pinch of cayenne pepper and double the paprika.
Can’t make it now? Then pin it for later!
