THE ORIGINAL DONAIR FROM THE EAST COAST OF CANADA



The Original Donair From the East Coast of Canada image

In the early 70's, a Greek restaurateur in the city of Halifax introduced the Donair. Within a few short years, virtually all pizzerias had added their version of the dish to their menus. Not to be confused with gyros, the Donair has a vastly different flavor. Originally the dish was made with ground lamb, but this proved too costly and ground beef was later substituted. Technically, this resulted in an aberration of sorts, as the final product was not what the originator had intended. What resulted, however, is the legendary East Coast Donair.

Time 9h50m

Yield 6

Number Of Ingredients 12

1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
½ cup white sugar
¼ cup white vinegar, or to taste
6 large pita bread rounds

Steps:

  • In a bowl, thoroughly mix together the ground beef, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, paprika, cayenne pepper, and oregano. Pack the spiced meat into a thick loaf shape, cover, and let rest in the refrigerator overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Place the meat loaf onto a baking sheet, and bake for 1 hour, flipping the loaf over halfway through cooking. Allow the meat loaf to cool so it holds together for slicing.
  • Mix together the evaporated milk and white sugar in a bowl, stirring until the sugar is dissolved, and then add the vinegar by teaspoons, mixing together after each addition, to taste. Refrigerate the sauce until serving.
  • Slice the meat loaf into 1/4-inch thick slices, and brown the slices in a skillet over medium heat until both sides are brown and crisp, about 5 minutes per side.
  • Sprinkle the pita bread rounds with a little water, and press each onto a heated skillet to warm up.
  • To serve, place several slices of meat into a warmed pita bread, and spoon about 2 tablespoons of sauce over the meat. Roll the pita bread into a cone shape, wrap in aluminum foil to keep the sauce from dripping out, and serve.

Time 1h45m

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 13

1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground oregano
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 pound ground beef
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
¾ cup white sugar
2 teaspoons garlic powder
4 teaspoons white vinegar, or as needed

Steps:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a cup or small bowl, mix together the salt, oregano, flour, black pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper.
  • Place the ground beef in a large bowl, and use your hands to blend in the spice mixture. If you want the smooth texture of meat that you see in a real donair shop, you must do this in a steel mixing bowl and on a sturdy surface. Pick up the meat, and throw it down with force about 20 times, kneading it after each throw. This also helps the meat hold together better when you slice it.
  • Form the meat into a loaf, and place it on a broiler pan. If you do not have one, a baking sheet will do.
  • Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes in the preheated oven, turning the loaf over about half way through. This will ensure even cooking. Serve, or allow the meat to chill before slicing and reheating.
  • To make the donair sauce, mix together the evaporated milk, sugar and garlic powder in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in the white vinegar, adding 1 teaspoon at a time, until thickened to your desired consistency.

Categories     Meat and Poultry Recipes     Lamb     Ground

Time 9h10m

Yield 15

Number Of Ingredients 19

4 pounds ground beef
1 pound ground lamb
5 teaspoons all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons salt
5 teaspoons dried oregano
2 ½ teaspoons dry mustard
2 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
2 ½ teaspoons cracked black pepper
2 ½ teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons crushed dried chile pepper
1 ½ teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
¾ cup white sugar
2 teaspoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons white vinegar, or as needed
15 pita bread rounds
2 tomatoes, chopped, or more to taste
1 onion, chopped

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease a large baking pan with sides.
  • Place beef, lamb, flour, salt, oregano, dry mustard, 2 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper, chile pepper, paprika, and Italian seasoning in a bowl; knead all ingredients together with your hands until mixture is like a paste, about 10 minutes. Roll the meat mixture into a large loaf shape, and place into the prepared pan.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Remove from oven; place meat on a drip rack until completely cool to allow juices and fat to drain. Refrigerate meat for 6 hours or overnight.
  • Stir evaporated milk, sugar, and 2 teaspoons garlic powder together in a small bowl; gradually stir in vinegar just until mixture thickens.
  • Slice donair meat into strips about 1/8-inch to 1/4-inch thick. Fry meat strips in single-sandwich batches in a skillet over medium-high heat until meat begins to crisp at the edges; remove from pan. Quickly rub 1 pita round lightly with water; fry pita in same frying pan, turning once, just until warm, about 1 minute.
  • Spread pita with about 1/2 tablespoons of sauce mixture, top with donair meat, and garnish with onion, tomato, and more sauce; repeat with remaining meat and pita.

DONAIR



Donair image

Donairs are a delicacy prevalent in the Canadian east coast, and certainly centered on the City of Halifax, they are very simple to prepare and very delicious. Make a double batch of the meatloaf, and freeze the second loaf for later, in fact the second loaf will be better! When cold you can slice it thinner and fry up the slices in the frying pan as you need them.

Time 4h10m

Yield 6

Number Of Ingredients 14

1 ½ pounds ground beef
⅓ cup bread crumbs
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 ½ teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
½ teaspoon salt
⅔ cup nonfat evaporated milk
⅔ cup sugar
⅓ cup vinegar
6 pita bread rounds
3 tomatoes, chopped
1 large onion, chopped

Steps:

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, bread crumbs, cayenne pepper, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, ground black pepper, and salt. Press into an 8x8 inch square baking dish, or casserole dish.
  • Bake for 2 hours in the preheated oven, until cooked through. Set aside to cool for at least 1/2 hour, the meat will slice even better if it is actually chilled completely.
  • To make the sauce, combine the evaporated milk, sugar and vinegar in a jar with a lid, and shake well to blend. Set aside to thicken.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, and slice off thin slices of the meat loaf. Fry the slices briefly in the hot skillet, until browned on each side. Remove from the skillet, and keep warm. Flick a little water onto the hot skillet, and brown the pita breads a little on each side to soften.
  • Load up one side of pitas with meat slices, tomatoes and onion. Spoon sauce over the filling, and fold pitas in half, then towards the center. Voila, you're eating!
