Doner Kebabs

A popular fast-food item in Germany is the Döner kebab. These originate in Turkey, but change a little from country to country. There is meat (roasted vertically on a spit) with lettuce, tomoatoes, onions, cabbage, and delicious garlicky yogurt sauce, all on warmed flatbread. A lot of times, the meat is "mystery meat", where you're not really sure what you're getting, but when we had Döners on our last night in Germany, the place we went to asked if we wantd chicken or beef! I chose chicken, and it tasted like roast chicken with a great mix of spices, including cumin.

Linda- I've already tried, but I couldn't get the meat right. Now that I know some places use chicken, I might try that. I just made Naan bread for the flatbread, because I couldn't find any I liked that was soft enough.

Chicken sounds great. When I've had those, it's been lamb, but I'm not a big lamb fan; they were still good though. Rotisserie-ing it must be a secret along with keeping it moist?
