Markouk or Markook Donair is a Halifax Style Donair topped with Halifax Donair Sauce, Diced Onion & Tomatoes. Wrapped in Markouk Saj Bread.

It adds a Chewiness to the Donair and some good tear action. If you never had a Markouk Donair, you really should. It is a unique and pleasant experience.

Markouk Bread

Pick these up at your local Middle Eastern Store. I picked mine up for $5.00 CAD for 5 pieces. Use for any wraps where you want to introduce a Chewy Tear to the eating experience.

Markouk Bread is a Lebanese Flat Bread that is cooked on a Saj. Which is a rounded concave cooking surface used for cooking flatbreads.

The Bread is nothing fancy just Flour, Salt, Sugar, Oil, and Yeast. It’s how it is prepared and cooked that makes this flatbread something else.

It’s a large Flatbread up to 2 feet in diameter and extremely thin almost translucent.

You don’t have to preheat the bread. Just stuff with the Ingredients and wrap.

Same as the Original Halifax Donair but wrapped in Markouk Bread.

This recipe uses JAH Halifax Donair Spice. If you don’t have this, you can pick up donair meat at your local Cash & Carry or use the standard online recipe found in the post JAH Donair Meat under the Standard Donair Recipe heading. You will also need to prepare the Halifax Donair Sauce.

Place the Bread off centered on a plate and Sauce with Donair Sauce, Donair Meat, More Donair Sauce, and Diced Onions & Tomatoes. Fold in the sides and wrap much like a Burrito.

These are large wraps so are more fitted for larger donairs of about 1/2 lbs or more.

The bread is really thin. So if not consuming right away then wrap the donair in tin foil to keep the bread soft. Else the pieces that are not in contact with the filling can dry up pretty fast.

Even with the large Flat Bread, filling it up with about 1/2 lbs of donair meat or more surprisingly is not Bready at all. It offers a unique eating experience that in my opinion is very enjoyable. I love tearing into this donair. For those always interested in trying out new donair foods, I think you will really enjoy this one.

  • Place Markouk Bread off center unto a plate. Sauce with Donair Sauce. Top with Hot Donair Meat. Add some extra Donair Sauce and top with Diced Onions & Tomatoes.
