Recipe by RACHEY638
"This is my version of Turkish kebabs which I made 'off the cuff' after searching unsuccessfully for a recipe online. The original sandwiches are made from meat that is pressed into a loaf and grilled on a rotating spit. The meat is shaved off as it gets crispy and then put into a pita sandwich. My recipe calls for thin slices of meat to be marinated and then broiled to get the same effect without a huge rotating grill. Serve in a warmed pita with goat cheese, tzatziki sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and pepperoncinis."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I love it! After years in Turkey and Germany, I've also been looking for that elusive doner kebab. This recipe is the closest I've been able to get to it.
Disregard the previous review...the reviewer obviously isn't cultured enough.
Very very tastey! I've had many many donar or as the Greeks say, gyros, and it's hard to find a great donar in Canada but I'll be making this over and over again. Our western kebabs are what the first comment describes but that's not the Turkish recipes. I also add tomato, red onion slices, and lettuce with the meat in the pita. Thanks RACHEY for this recipe!
This is delicious! We spent a few years in Germany and the Doner kebab was our favorite. Since then we have been looking for it in the states. This is definitely pretty dang close. We've made it at least once a month since finding this recipe.
I made my own sauces, but the meat marinade was really good!
Loved these delicious sandwiches! I prepared the marinade/rub as directed with just one large onion. The chicken was so flavorful and delicious. Hubs prepared on the grill. This is a great recipe for tzatziki sauce too, I prepared as written and added a little onion and garlic powders, too. Definitely make ahead to let those flavors meld. Really enjoyed trying your recipe, RACHEY638!
Not sure how authentic this recipe is, but it sure is delicious! We're definitely adding this to our list of favorite recipes.
I promise to take a photo next time, because they turned out pretty as well as delicious. Everyone loved these, and that includes a picky-about-trying-new-stuff kid. I sliced the flank steak when it was still partially frozen so I coulld get it very thin (~1/8" slice), and dried with paper towels right before broiling to get a nice sear. The tzatziki sauce was very good as well. This is a simple meal and results may vary if the ingredients are not high quality. I used Kronoz brand pitas from the regular grocery store and they were very good. I did change one thing, which is I used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. You can do this with every recipe so long as it is not going to be cooked. Sour cream is not likely to separate the way yogurt can when heated.
