Beef Souvlaki

Postby Angel » Tue May 30, 2006 4:20 pm

Does anyone know the calorie/kilojoule content of a beef souvlaki? How much would you deduct if you say no to the creamy garlic sauce?

My local fish n chip shop does a lovely souvlaki - marinated & grilled beef, tomato, onion, lettuce and creamy garlic sauce on souvlaki bread. I would think that its a healthier option than the fried foods they offer but not sure how it fits into my kilojoule watching.

Any help most appreciated.
Cheers

Hi Angel

My trust calorie counter says the following:

souvlaki 1 serve 296-342 calories
The entry has it lumped together with other types of takeaway food which is why the cals have a range like that.

Later under Asian and Middle Eastern takeaway it has:

souvlaki 100g 198 cals

However, it doesn't specify if this is with the 'creamy garlic sauce' (which sounds yummy by the way).

If it is something you can have as a meal rather than a snack then the cals don't seem to bad I think.

You will know what works for you. :D

I would think that if you didn't have any sauces on it Angel that it would be a lot better than anything greasy. I'd take that option over anything else, minus the sauce! Sounds delish!! :D

Geez, just remembered Calorie King website so I looked up souvlaki on that. It said 2090 kilojoules, or for those that work in calories 498 calories.

This would mean its approx. a third of my daily kilojoule intake, so I reckon its definitely worth a try as an occasional treat. We have to be realistic with our meals after all - I haven't had takeaway since new year :oops: !

I might look up that tazeki sauce (not spelt right), that would be the closest to the sauce and minus that, should work out better that way. Garlic sauce is especially yummy but with the marinated beef it should be flavoursome and I guess if its not I could always use my trust chilli sauce!

Thanks for the help guys.

Your welcome and this Calorie King sounds interesting. My book only covers so much. Do you have the website for that Angel?
