Beef Kebabs in Pitta Bread

Most of us love a take away yet they cost a fortune, esp if you have to buy for the whole family. I often make these for friends after we come back from a night on the beer. They are fairly easy to make esp as most of the work is done in advance so all you have to do is fry the steak strips and put the kebab together when you are ready to serve them. I used beef sirloin but you can also do it with prawns, veggies, chicken and even lamb though lamb is so expensive these days not many of us can afford to use it.

The pita bread is easy to make though a little time consuming. You can easily and cheaply buy them in most supermarkets, though I advise having a look at the ingredients before buying them as most as so full of rubbish like hidden sugars and who knows what else. Homemade is always tastier and healthier so go on, give them a go.



Allergens : Contains Gluten

Beef Sirloin or Beef Strips (try use sirloin if you can afford it) – 450g

Cumin Powder – 1 tbsp

Ground Coriander – 2 tsp

Garam Masala – 1 tbsp

Natural Yogurt – 3 tbsp

Chilli Powder (mild or hot to taste) – 1 -2 tsp

The Pita Bread

Plain or Bread flour – 500g

Fast Action Dried Yeast – 7g (1 Sachet)

Warm Water – 100ml or so

Sugar – 1tsp

Salt – 1tsp

Any salad you like for the filling

Garlic Mayonnaise – 2 tbsp per kebab

Chilli Sauce – 1 tbsp per kebab (recipe soon)



Getting Ready…

You will need – 1 Sealable food bad or a tupperware container, 1 large bowl, 1 griddle pan or non stick pan for both the meat and the pita bread, 1 sharp knife and 1 chopping board.


Cut the beef into 2.5cm strips or there abouts.


Mix the spices and yogurt in the bag and add the beef then leave to marinade overnight, 24 hours would be better. Add 2 tsp of lemon juice if you are using supermarket strips as it will help tenderise it.


Sieve the flour into a large bowl and add the yeast, sugar and salt then mix well.


Add the water little by little until you are left with a dough that stick together but isn’t sticky. If you add too much water add a tiny bit of flout at a time till you get the desired consistency.


Cover the bowl and leave in a warm place for half an hour till it doubles in size.


Knock the dough back (this means to knock the air out of it) then tear off 6 evenly sized pieces.


Roll each out to a circle a little smaller than your pan. Then cook one at a time on a dry non stick pan over a medium heat for about 3 minutes per side.


Fry the beef for 2 -3 minutes each side then place on the pita bread with the salad and sauces, roll and serve.
