How to make Donairs - the Halifax, NS version

Knead the spices into the meat like you would for making bread. The meat is mixed enough when there are fat deposits on the sides of your bowl.

Bake at 450ºF for 45 minutes

- The inside is still rare so it isn't dried out when you refry the slices.
- Don’t drain off the fat. You will need it for frying later.
- Cover with foil and let it rest so the juices will stay in the meat.


- Slice the meat very thinly.
- Fry your slices in the donair fat.

After the meat slices are fried:

- Dip a pita bread slice into warm water
- Then fry in the donair fat

- Pita slice
- Meat
- Garnish
- Sauce
