Bump And Beyond


Fakeaway Slow Cooker Doner Kebab and The #HealtyRedMeat Challenge

I don’t know about you, but we love a cheeky kebab in our household. However as you know I am trying to refrain from ordering takeaways and include more healthy meals into our diet.

BritMums and the Meat Advisory Panel recently set up a challenge for parents to create a yummy family friendly recipe with beef, pork or lamb. 

I chose a recipe that was quick and easy to make and it’s one of Darcy’s favoruite meals. She’s starting to get a little picky with her food so I try to include as many healthy elements to her meals as possible. Dr Emma Derbyshire, a public health nutritionist and mother, says: “Including a small portion of red meat in the diet a few times a week after weaning can help to bridge nutrient gaps and so help to maintain good health through childhood and beyond.”

If I am honest we are not big red meat eaters in our house but when we do have it I make sure it is as lean as possible. Red meat is also a good source of iron, zinc, B vitamins, selenium and potassium – essential ingredients for the healthy growth and development of children and maintenance in adults.

Fakeaway Doner Kebab


500g lean beef (you can use lamb, but I find beef is more flavoursome)
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp mixed herbs
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
¼ cayenne pepper
2 beef oxo cubes


  1. Place all dry ingredients into the bowl and mixed together
  2. Add the mince, and mixed together until smooth (using your hands are best for this)
  3. Roll the mixture into a sausage shape
  4. On a sheet of foil place sliced onions and put the kebab meat on top,
  5. Wrap the kebab meat up and cook in a slow cooker for 5 hours on low or 3 on high
  6. Once cooked slice and serve with lots of salad, pitta bread and or chips

What’s your family's favourite meal?
