Attempt at Preparing Home-made Iskender Kebap


If you want to eat real Iskender Kebap there is only way: to go to a Bursa Iskender Kebap Restaurant and order some! The meat of the original one comes from certain type of rams under a certain age that are pasturing a certain kind of thyme in a certain area. So, no need to fool ourselves :) We unfortunately can't have the same results as original one

The recipe here though is not bad at all. It is a fair imitation of Iskender Kebap. It could be a good alternative for those that live abroad as I do.

Ingredients for Meat
750g veal (good quality)
150g onion, quartered
100g olive oil
60g yogurt
Salt, thyme, black pepper

Tomato Sauce Ingredients
20g butter
550g roughly chopped tomatoes
20g tomato paste
50g water
10g Thermomix vegetable stock

Other Ingredients:
1 Pide (You can prepare with Thermomix)
Yogurt (You can prepare with Thermomix)
50g butter

Meat Preparation
  • Chop onion for 5 seconds on Speed 6. Clean down the sides of TM Bowl and repeat
  • Put chopped onion in a strainer. Place strainer over TM Bowl. Strain the liquid into TM Bowl by pressing with a fork or spoon. Throw residue
  • Add oil, yogurt, salt, thyme and pepper. Mix for 10 seconds on Speed 3-4
  • Put the meat in a bowl. Pour marinade sauce, close the lid and let it rest in the fridge for 3-4 hours
  • Get the meat and strain marinade sauce. Wrap with aluminum folio and let it freeze in the freezer. (We freeze the meat so that it would be easier to cut it into thin doner slices later on. I'd recommend you to prepare the day before)

Tomato Sauce
  • Melt butter for 2 minutes at 80°C on Speed 1
  • Add tomatoes and tomato paste. Blend for 10 seconds on Speed 9
  • Add water and TM stock. Cook for 15 minutes at 100°C on Speed 2

Cooking meat

  • Remove the meat from the freezer. After 15-20 minutes cut it into very thin doner kebap slices with the help of a sharp knife
  • Put very little olive oil in a Teflon pan and fry doner slices with medium-high heat. 
  • In the meantime cut pide into 2 x 2cm pieces and toast them a little in another Teflon pan
  • Melt 50g butter in another pan

  • Remember! It is important to cook all in a synchronized way so that they would all be warm when you serve! 
  • Spread toasted pide in a serving plate. Pour 2 tbsps of tomato sauce. Cover with doner kebap slices. Pour again some more sauce on the top. Put some yogurt on the side. As the last step pour some very hot melted butter over the meat and serve!

Afiyet olsun...
