This is an Original East Coast Donair Recipe i got from my aunt in NB, Im not sure if this is the same recipe that my grandmother got from the owner of a popular resturant in Campbellton or not… so im not going to claim it, but it very well could be.

If i find out that it is, i’ll note that it is, and if im asked to take it down i will.. but for now im putting up this so others can make their own and enjoy.

this is a complete from scratch recipe, including the pita, but you can always buy your own if your like me and spent enough time making the meat and sauce you just want to eat this thing already!

First 10 Ingredients are Just for the Meat, which Makes 2 Loafs…
10-15 is the sauce, which you can add garlic powder to add the garlic flavor to the sweet sauce
and the rest is the pita, which id go buy them! i havn’t made pita’s by this recipe, so i dont know…
