    The best donair meat recipe! The only changes I make is I cuts the cayenne pepper and black pepper in half. Not a fan of really spicy but this makes it just perfect with the perfect amount of spiciness. My husband doesn’t like donairs that I buys in a restaurant but he loves these. Since I’ve tried this recipe, I haven’t bought a donair since...it’s that good.

    I wonder why Steve P.; geniuskitchen.com; and food.com think it’s okay to use a photograph without permission of the owner? The photograph shown isn’t even derived from the recipe it is attached to. The photo belongs to https://mysouschefisadog.wordpress.com and has been used without credit.

    I've never heard of donair meat before, and I really only tried it because the sauce sounded so strange to me. But WOW, is this good! I am a spicy-foods wuss, so I only used 1 tsp. cayenne; i was tempted to cut it to 1/2 tsp, but after trying it, I think it could use the full 2 teaspoons. The sauce definitely makes the sandwich, though I did add more vinegar and a dash of salt to mine. I work a hectic schedule, and something like this, which can be frozen and prepared in individual batches, is perfect for me. Thanks for the recipe!

    I am from nova scotia and after so many bad experiences of customer service from Donair/pizza shops here and paying 20 dollars a meal for something i love, i tried this recipe, and it turned out so amazing, we made 3 loaves and i have so much meat in my freezer now that whenever the craving hits i can just fry it up a bit and make some sauce and have one. Thanks for much for this recipe!!
