Recipe Ingredients for Donair and sauce

3 pounds extra lean ground beef (triple ground)
3/4 cup bread crumbs
2 tsp pepper
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 1/2 tsp oregano
3 tsp paprika
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
8 pita
2/3 cup evaporated milk
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Recipe Directions for Donair and sauce

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Knead for 20 minutes. Shape into two tightly formed loaves. Bake on broiler pan for 2 to 2 1/2 hours at 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Cool loaves and slice into thick slabs. Meat can be frozen for future use. If (like me) you are not fortunate enough to own your own rotary-stick-cooker thing like the ones in the good shops, you may find that the inner parts of the loaf are not browned enough. This can be remedied by re-heating the meat in a frying pan. This browns it nicely and gives it that slightly chewier texture.

  2. Preparation

  3. Heat donair meat in a frying pan. Dip a pita bread in water and fry in frying pan to soften (this is VERY important). Place a generous amount of sauce on bread. Top with meat, chopped onions and tomatoes and finish off with lots more sauce (recipe is separate). Put on some old clothes, then roll up or serve open face on a plate.

  4. Sauce

  5. Stir canned milk, sugar and garlic powder until sugar is dissolved. Add vinegar and continue mixing. The quicker you add the vinegar and the less you mix, the thicker the sauce will be. Let sauce sit for at least one hour in refrigerator before using. Eventually, the sauce may start to separate. DO NOT STIR IT. Simply skim the thick sauce off the top. It tastes fine, despite the appearance that all the vinegar has seeped out of it.

  6. I find that the sauce can be made in larger batches and survives an unnaturally long time in the fridge. It also actually freezes quite well if you are not as brave as it takes to spoon 3 week old milk products onto your food. Repeated thawing and reheating of sauce does not seem to affect the taste or quality
