An Easy Recipe for Fakeaway Kebab
How much money have you wasted on ordering takeaways and does it consist of layers of grease lying on the bottom of the tray?
Well last week I decided to give the Fakeaway Kebab a try and wow , I won't ever be ordering another again, from now on I will be making my very own and it is the most simplest recipe with the very least effort into making it .
The Fakeaway Kebab.
How to -
I swear , the smell that comes from your kitchen is absolutely amazing.
I had prepared and put mine in at dinnertime as it was a meal I was preparing for my husband for our Valentine evening for when he returned home from work.
I spent the hours whilst it was slow cooking preparing the house , candles through the home and petals showered my floors , Valentine was not just another day for us but also an anniversary from when he proposed to me so I wanted to make it extra special by making him something I knew he would enjoy instead of just ordering it in and throwing it on a plate like we would normally do.
It was just a little thing that made the difference in a whole evening .
The good thing about this was that this meal was perfect for those evenings out.
I know so many friends who go out for the evening and pop into the takeaway to grab a sweaty kebab and this is ideal for preparing and leaving for when you get back and the good thing about it is it's so much healthier and so much tastier.
You can also make this in an oven but personally I love using my slow cooker due to lack of utensils needed and less cleaning, plus I get to leave it to do all the work, no need for constant checking or stirring or flipping over and even better when I need to pop out its safe to leave.
My children Love kebab but I don't like them eating it being so greasy and so this version makes me feel at ease knowing its healthier and more fresh as well as being able to add less spice allowing them to enjoy it more .
you do not need to wrap your loaf into foil , you can place your loaf directly onto the bottom of the slow cooker or you could roll a bowl of foil or add a tray onto the bottom to keep it up from any juices or oils that may be made from the slow cooking.
You will find that there is rather a lot of Kebab left over . The thinner you slice it , the more you will get from it as we had ours rather thick we easily have got 8 kebabs .
If you decide not to use it or can not eat it all at once , then you will be pleased to know that this is freezable and as soon as it is cooled you can cover it and place int the freezer for another time.
When your ready to reheat, just 10-12 minutes in the oven at 190 ºC, 375ºF, Gas mark 5 or in the microwave in a sealed container for 2 minutes will be suffice.
We personally loved our Kebab served in a warm pitta with homemade chips and salad , having a dash of chilli or Garlic mayonnaise is always a must for us but its all personal preference so its up to you how you wish to eat this.
My husband loves this thrown into a pan with mushrooms, peppers and onions with a little Gravy into a bread bun.

We absolutely loved this Fakeaway kebab and will definitely be making it more regular .
Have you made your own Fakeaway , perhaps there is another recipe you could share .

I am a veggie but even if I order a veggie kebab the amount of grease really puts me off. Love this homemade version x

This looks so wonderful and definitely so much healthier than the takeaway. I wouldn't have thought it would be so easy to do this, but I am going to try this.

I use a very similar recipe and it's absolutely fantastic. I couldn't get over how good it was and so similar to the real thing x

kebabs used to be my guilty pleasure (I moved to a new city and never found one here I liked) so this looks incredible to make at home, and nice to know it's all fresh too! xx

This looks so cool and definitely something that I would make at home. I like to make my own chicken kebabs so doing a lamb version would be a great change for me and my hubby. Thanks for the inspiration, thats Saturday night's tea sorted! xxx

I've never had lamb mince, but I'd love to try it. These sandwiches look amazing!

This homemade version looks so great. It reminds me of street food my friend and I get sometimes late a night when we have the munchies. Next time we'll make your recipe instead .. so much better for us

This sounds amazing, especially the garlic mayo. I'll definitely have to give this a go as you can't beat a kebab x

I've never been a fan of kebabs from the takeaway as they look really greasy. The one you made looks a lot better

I make a variation of this but cook it in the oven. I'm tempted now to give this slow cooker variation a try.

I like the idea of a Fakeaway! However the nice thing about ordering takeaway is that you don't have to cook it yourself ;) yours looks delicious though x

It's so easy to make your own takeaways isn't it. Much healthier, not to mentioned cheaper.

Wow, you've done really well with creating this kebab.
23/2/2017 06:16:49 pm
Wow!!! This looks amazing yet extremely simple. And how much money is saved too!
