We tried the supermarket doner meat shoppers are going crazy for and won't be needing the kebab house again

Whether it's a weekend treat or something you'd usually only eat after a tipple or two, most people have enjoyed a doner kebab at some point.
It's never been particularly easy to recreate a proper takeaway kebab at home, but one supermarket seems to be changing all that.
We reported last month how shoppers are going crazy for Iceland's bags of doner meat, with stock flying out as soon as it hits the stores.

Eager to see what all the fuss is about, I managed to grab the last three packs of King Kebab House Doner Kebab Meat, which are £4 each or three for £10.
Instructions on the bag say to shallow fry or microwave, but having seen reviews from people air frying the stuff, I decided to do the same.
It couldn't have been simpler and the end result couldn't have been tastier.
It took around eight minutes in the air fryer from frozen and was perfectly cooked, with just the right amount of crispiness on the edges.
We put it on some naan bread, added a bit of lettuce, cheese and sauce - Iceland also sells a good selection for £1.50 each - and that was it, one of the tastiest kebabs we've ever had, and no doubt healthier than a takeaway.
The meat seems to be getting harder to find. Trust me, I've had several failed trips to get some more, but when I do see it I'll definitely be stocking up. It's our new obsession.
We used around one and half of the 350g bags to make four decent size kebabs. Larger 750g bags are also available for £6.
