  • 500g lamb mince
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • (Optional) ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • Sliced onions (acting as trivet in slow cooker)
  • 6-8 pitta breads to serve
  • Salad to serve (lettuce, shredded cabbage, red onion, tomato)
  1. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Add the lamb mince to the bowl, mixing well until all the dry ingredients are evenly combined.
  3. Cut two sheets of foil big enough in which to wrap the mince. Put the mince onto one of the sheets, rolling into an even, flat circle shape (that can fit into your slow cooker). Wrap the mince tightly in the foil, then wrap again with the second sheet.
  4. Add some sliced onion and a little water to the bottom of the slow cooker and turn it on, low or high dependant on how long you have for it to cook.
  5. Sit the kebab on top of the onions and water, cover with the lid and time for 4 hours approx. on high (7 hours on low). To oven cook: add to a crock pot in the same way as above, cover with lid and cook for 3-to-4 hours at 160° / fan 140°.
  6. Once cooked, leave to rest for 10-15 minutes. Prepare your salad of choice and warm the pitta breads.
  7. Unwrap the kebab and thinly slice. Serve inside the pitta breads with salad and choice of sauces.
