Turkish Kebab
« on: March 28, 2014, 09:01:53 AM »
While in Germany last year I found I loved the Turkish kebab takeout shops. There are a lot of Turkish immigrants in Germany and the food has hit a niche there. I even had a delightful chat with a chef at one about how spicy it should be. I love spice.

Here's the question. Anyone have a recipe? I'd like to make these at home but I'm nervous I'll just end up with gyros. There are some recipes online but they seem unpopular. I'd also take help with traditional Turkish seasoning. Please help expand my knowledge of Turkish food!

Hi,

I found a recipe that reminds me of what I ate in Germany if you want it. I would think that the kebabs would go good with a tzatziki and a nice flat bread.

David in MN, I have been trying to find a place since I left Germany that makes these. When I was stationed in New Mexico (after Germany) there was a German fighter squadron attached to our base. Well one of them decided to open an imbiss that served shnitzel and doner kebabs. Unfortunately I left there in 2010 and have not found anywhere in Florida that makes them. It is unfortunate that I can not find the kebab, not that I left New Mexico.

I wish you the best of luck on your endeavor. I never knew what went on it except for beef and lamb, I just told them to put everything on it.

Yeah same here, I would love to have a recipe!  Or also any other sort of middle eastern kebabs, I know my husband is quite partial to Afghani kebabs that I am not sure at all how to make.

I found a really helpful video that kind of "dumbs it down" for us who want to make at home. I'll try later today (though lacking a rotisserie I'll use my grill). Also gives some of the history of doner kebab.
