    6 hrs 5 mins

  • Yields: 4-6


4-6 Lamb Chops (or you can use lamb shanks, roast, diced or any cut of lamb)

1 x 420g can Campbell's Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup (no water added)

1 x 40g Packet French Onion Soup Mix (dry)

1-2 Tablespoons Worcestireshire Sauce

1 Tablespoon Mint Sauce or Mint Jelly

1 Onion diced


1Place lamb in slow cooker bowl

2Add onion

3Combine all other ingredients and pour over chops

4Cook on low for 6hrs approximately or up to 8hrs for a large lamb roast



7This does NOT taste like mushroom.

8Even seasoned mushroom haters have been fed this without knowing and not one has detected the mushroom yet!

9The mint is the mildest hint of flavour but if you really, really don't like it then just leave it out, it won't matter.

You can if you like to πŸ™‚ Being lamb it is a fairly fatty meat … but here is some ways to REMOVE FAT AND OIL FROM SLOW COOKER DISH

Chelsea Duncan

October 17, 2017

I’m looking forward to trying this recipe tomorrow. Should I trim some fat off my lamb chops (8 mid loin chops)?

Definitely a family favorite πŸ™‚
So delish πŸ‘Œ

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

September 12, 2017

I do anywhere between 1 – 1.5kg of meat usually πŸ™‚
But it could adapt to up to 2kg

Claire Lacey

September 11, 2017

How many grams of meat does this recipe require so I can know to adjust for different cuts of meat? Thanks πŸ™‚

Love this recipe have made it with sausages as well delicious.
But today I realised that I didn’t have any mushroom soup and it’s an hour trip for me to the shops so I used a can of asparagus soup instead ….still yummy

Lisa Saragas

August 1, 2017

This is our family favourite dish πŸ˜€ i do modify it a little, 45mins – 1hour before serving i add gravy. It thickens it up and gives abit more flavour!! Hubby loves it on bread rolls πŸ™‚ a must try

We have the Sausage Obsession version too πŸ™‚
I do often find sausages salty tasting when slow cooked so use salt reduced FO soup with those

Kelly Lockley

July 18, 2017

Used sausages instead of lamb. Was quite salty compared to our usual food but still very very nice. Added broccoli & carrots towards to end and served with mash

Jessica Hansen

July 17, 2017

I was a bit hesitant making this as was unsure how it would taste from the cream of mushroom soup but it was fantastic not an over powering mushroom taste at all a nice creamy sauce and soft lamb.


July 2, 2017

This dish would be number 4 in my first attempts with the slow cooker. It was so yummy! Hubby claimed the left overs by removing the bones from the lamb chops and dividing the leftovers in half, adding it to potato bake for 2 days of lunches at work. He is not a mushroom eater and all that was left in his bowl were bones! Thank you πŸ™‚

Lesley Lohrey

Was yummy even the daughter loved it

Lesley Lohrey

June 21, 2017

Can’t wait for tea tonight, trying this for the first time will be interesting to see if the daughter can taste the mushroom soup.
I also used an extra tbsp of mint sauce.

Fiona MacKenzie

June 18, 2017

Dinner Winner!
This is a definitely a must do again recipe.

It’s great with sausages too for a cheaper alternative πŸ™‚ I’ve even done it with mince
I’m Australian and I often wait until the lamb forequarter chops come on special and do it with them πŸ™‚
Or neck chops from butcher are often well priced too

Darren Comley

June 6, 2017

Very nice. I did this with good loin chops and stuck exactly to recipe. Initially I thought I’d overdone the mint sauce based on aroma and an early sneaky taste test, but I had nothing to worry about. I served with oven roasted potato, carrot and puimkin and the sauce makes the perfect gravy for those too. Will definitely do it again and definitely recommend it for others.


June 5, 2017

I loveeee this. My partner doesn’t though so it sucks, I would eat this once a week if I could (and if lamb wasn’t so expensive in Australia πŸ˜‚)

Raw is just fine πŸ™‚


June 5, 2017

Hi There, I’d like to try this tomorrow and one question – do you brown the lamb before or is it just raw when added with everything else? Thanks

Stephanie barlow

June 3, 2017

Sooo yummy and easy!

Sure can – I often do it with 10 or 12 neck chops

Megan Tebbutt

May 31, 2017

Could you use lamb neck chops for this recipe? TIA

Lauren Ormesher

May 17, 2017

Such a simple and tasty recipe! Definitely going to use this heaps 😍😍

Tracey Thorpe

May 4, 2017

So simple…simply delicious.
Only thing I changed in the recipe was the meat. Used topside roast as hubby isn’t a fan of lamb. And he’s a HUGE lover of gravies/sauces and this recipe offers heaps.
The hint of mint was my personal favourite part.
Will become a regular meal in this house. 😊

LOVE this review! πŸ™‚

I am honestly the fussiest eater you will ever meet. After 6+ months of being on the slow cooker central facebook page i finally decided to give this recipe a go. Can easily say it’s my absolute favourite meal now. So simple and delicious! Doesn’t take like mushrooms at all, you would be silly not to try this recipe!

Linda Evans

April 16, 2017

I want to do leg of lamb in slow cooker with this sauce.
Advice needed on cooking time please

Any cream of style soup can be used. Cream of chicken is the most subtle of the flavour changes though others have used cream of asparagus or cream of celery etc also πŸ™‚


April 14, 2017

Would there be an alternative to the cream of mushroom soup cause we have a mushroom allergy in our house.

Ellen Polomka

April 13, 2017

We just love this recipe. Every time I buy lamb chops my husband always asks me to make this. Can I please ask can you do this with beef omitting the mint sauce.

Awwww best feedback ever! πŸ˜€

Becky Southam

April 7, 2017

This is so far the greatest thing to come out of my slow cooker! Now I buy lamb whenever it is on special so I can make this. 12 year old and fussy toddler both love it! Thank you for a great recipe πŸ™‚

Hi Leesa

If using chicken drop the cooking time down more like 4hrs
You can also use salt reduced french onion soup (and the mushroom if you can find that salt reduced too)
Another tip if towards the end you still feel it’s too salty you can place a pealed raw potato in the pot for the last hour to absorb salt then discard it before serving. Don’t judge the salt taste by the start but by closer to the end πŸ™‚


March 30, 2017

How long would you cook it for if using chicken?
Going to try but am worried about the comments re: saltiness as we don’t eat much salt at all.

Cheryl Frappell

February 24, 2017

My family and I absolutely love this meal

February 23, 2017

This was amazing! My 3 girls loved it, even my fussy toddler who won’t eat much at all! Taste was great, very surprised you could not taste mushroom or mint sauce as no one in our house is very keen on either. Will be making this again for sure!!!!


January 30, 2017

This dish is absolutely sensational and so very simple 😊 Crowd pleaser with my family, kids wanted seconds!!! Definatley be making it more often.

Steve Lord

January 21, 2017

First attempt at this dish, used 6 lamb leg chops and everything ad per recipe. Meat is literally falling of the bone and the taste of the gravy is awesome. Definitely one I’m going to be doing again.

Talia Pershouse

January 6, 2017

This is our favourite! I always scoop off the oil and thicken with cornflour at the end . In the last two hours I chop up bacon and add it and it makes it even better! Sometimes I’ll add mushrooms too. It’s so saucy so I can easily cook 8 chops without doubling the sauce . The best thing about this recipe is I take the bones out and put the leftovers in the fridge . The next day I make Jaffles with it and they’re the best thing I’ve ever tasted! Everyone drools over them.

Rita Cotton Sharples

November 19, 2016

Made this today for the first time using lamb shanks ,also was first time using a tin of soup in a recipe ,we loved it .It was so easy ,I will defiantly make it again.Did this to the letter but I will add some carrots and potatoes next time to get that fab flavour into them..Thankyou

Jak Pearn

November 3, 2016

I’m going to try this next week changing a few things around as I’m allergic to mushrooms ….will use diced lamb and maybe low salt either tomato or cream of chicken soup ,, …..if using tomato will add heaps of fresh basil … chicken not sure yet ….sounds yummmm

Best recipe ever will tell all the family and friends about it but I added mushrooms

Noel Wells

September 24, 2016

I made this for the first time last night and OMG it is the bomb I was walking around with the slow cooker bowl and bread getting out the last of the gravy ( I didn’t want to waste any lolol ) I did how ever add some mushrooms finely sliced as well and they added even more flavour awesome recipe would and will recommend it anybody

Melissa Simpson

September 19, 2016

Made this tonight with a lamb shoulder, low for 7 hours, sauce was oily at first but soaked up the oil with bread and thickened the sauce with some cornflour. Definitely a winner at my house, husband requested it again and fussy children loved it


September 4, 2016

Had on high for the first half hour then turned down to low last 10-15 mins put up to high while the potatoes boiled and it had thickened up nicely
Meat fell of the bone
Kids 5 and 15 months enjoyed it
Me myself thought it was just an average meal nothing spectacular like everyone is saying
Will be a once in a blue moon type of meal in this household


September 1, 2016

I have made this a few times using the mini lamb roasts. I leave out the mint jelly and only use half a packet of the french onion soup as found it was too strong and salty, but otherwise ITS A WINNER in my house.

Thanks for updating us πŸ™‚

Mega Seadramon

August 14, 2016

I wish I could edit my earlier review. This is great. I have no idea what I did wrong the first time round but I have made it twice since then and both those times it was wonderful.


August 10, 2016

It tastes very delicious, I had not had mint sauce before but it tastes very nice with the lamb. πŸ™‚ 10/10 from me.

Carley-Jean Fuller

August 4, 2016

Absolutely love this recipe.
My “Picky” daughter and sister asked for seconds. Definately cooking this again.


July 30, 2016

Very yummy! Have cooked this using Lamb Shanks, Lamb Roast, and Lamb Shoulder Chops, and every time the meat is so tender, and delicious!

Nat Revell

July 24, 2016

Delicious! Will be making this again!


July 20, 2016

I made this and the lamb was beautifully fall apart, melt in your mouth. The sauce was a good consistency. There was no mushroom flavour (although I like mushrooms, so that would not have been a problem). BUT it was insanely salty. Ridiculously so. I think the problem was a can of soup concentrate with nothing to water it down AND a packet of dry soup mix with nothing to water it down. The flavour had potential but the over-saltyness was really really really unpalatable.
Not sure what the solution is. I followed the recipe to a T.

Belinda Walker

July 15, 2016

Made this for the first time last night omg yummo ? and then put the remaining sauce in zip lock bags and put in the freezer for my next casserole base..

This includes more options for you too >> Removing Excess Fat/Oil from Slow Cooker Dishes
And yes it tastes great with chicken and beef too πŸ™‚ I just leave out the mint for anything other than lamb


July 15, 2016

A-MAZ-ING!!!! First time I made this was with forequarter chops. I should have trimmed the fat as I found that it was pretty fatty on parts. A lamb shoulder roll is in the cooker today and next week I’m doing lamb shanks.

I think it would be beautiful with chicken too

Ashley Hogg

July 5, 2016

Had this for dinner tonight and it was AMAZING! I would definitely do it again. Only thing i would change is the type of lamb. I used the forequarter chops. Next time i think ill just use lamb without a bone in it πŸ™‚ lol


July 4, 2016

The whole family loved this! I used chops but am going to try with shanks as chops a bit fiddly to eat with it. Tip: need some nice fresh bread and butter to sop up the leftover sauce. Delicious ! doesn’t taste like mushroom.


July 3, 2016

I’ve used a shoulder roast and it’s extremely oily in the slow cooker. How can I absorb the oil?


July 1, 2016

That was the best shanks I’ve ever had SOOOOOOO TASTEY


June 26, 2016

I hate mushies, hubby loves them. Cooked this up and it was a winner, not mushroomy at all. In the to cook again list ☺.

Linda Roberts

June 25, 2016

A new family favourite. We didn’t add the mint jelly as we didn’t have any. Have also tried with beef and just as delicious. Little Mister 4 licked his plate clean…no fussy eater on this night. Thank you, thank you, thank you


June 24, 2016

My absolute favourite hands down

leala martin

June 20, 2016

OMG, the best recipe, so tasty, couldnt get enough will be making this again for sure πŸ™‚

Donna Forrst

June 19, 2016

OMG it was absolutely gorgeous, my husband is still slapping up the sauce with bread as I’m writing this, I have 3 kids who come to dinner at least once a week, and I will definitely be making this for them, they love slow cooked hearty meals with mash and vege, thank you again. ?

You don’t need a pressure cooker for any of our recipes!
We are slow cooking only πŸ™‚
And cheap is usually just as good as expensive so don’t worry at all πŸ™‚

Donna Forrest

June 18, 2016

Hi my daughter sent me this link, and I love all your recipes, just checking, I only have a cheep slow cooker from Kmart, like $40.00 the lid just sits on top, or do I need to by a proper pressure cooker, or more expensive slow cooker.

hahaha that’s pretty awesome!!
First time I’ve read feedback put like that :))

Kylie Read

June 16, 2016

I made this last night using lamb rump steak, trimmed of all fat. OMG! It was unbelievable! The sauce was nice and thick and no fat. My friend who absolutely hates mint didn’t even know that was an ingredient. If I was served this in a restaurant I would ask to meet the chef lol. Delicious

You sure can if you wish to πŸ™‚

Jason Anderson

June 7, 2016

Amazing! My wife and I both loved it. What more can I say? πŸ™‚


June 6, 2016

Hi All.
I have a quick question (making this meal today). I usually don’t go for really salty dishes… oh I eat them, but then I suffer from thirst for the rest of the night. The worcest. sauce, tinned soup and French onion all have a good dose of salt in them. Has anyone used salt reduced tinned soup in the recipe? Has anyone found the meal over-salty?

Shaye Marks

June 3, 2016

Oh my god, what more can i say. This is absolutely delicious and my fussy 7yr old loved, loved, loved it. Thank you to the creative people that come up with these recipes, makes my cooking time so much easier.

Ellen Polomka

June 3, 2016

Made this for tea on Wednesday night. Absolutely Beautiful. Husband loved it have to do it again. He also wants me to do a beef one.

Amanda Armstrong

June 2, 2016

To make this a ‘dump meal’, can you put the can of mushroom soup/french onion soup/etc in the zip lock bag and freeze or would you add these ingredients at the time of cooking?
Thank you!


May 29, 2016

Absolutely delish! Would definitely make it again…the family loved it.

Leeanne Henderson

May 29, 2016

have made it numerous times using lamb and beef and chicken delicious each time
I do add garlic and tin of vegetable


May 29, 2016

Made this and another hit in the sc but would serve with mash or potato back next time

sara busbridge

May 27, 2016

I am cooking this tonight it smells really good

Wow! πŸ™‚


May 24, 2016

Cooked this tonight, using a lamb leg. Absolutely amazing. Hubby said it was his best meal this year. He didn’t leave any leftovers.

Kim Knol

May 24, 2016

A staple in my house!! Trying it with beef tonight!!!


May 21, 2016

Made this one the other night and was really tasty. I think next time though I’d use diced lamb instead of lamb chops just to avoid bones. Definitely add it to your to make list πŸ™‚

Zoe Notman

May 19, 2016

I use the left over as a base for soup. Just add more water and vegies <3

Tahlia Spence

May 16, 2016

This is amazing the lamb was just so tender even my 7 month old loved this she just kept opening her mouth for more ☺️

Melissa Gillespie

May 16, 2016

Everyone in our house loves this one, even though there are things in it that each of us do not like. I don’t like lamb, my daughter doesn’t like mushroom and my husband doesn’t like french onion soup. It’s still an absolute winner in our house – even better as leftovers the next day (not that there are very many leftovers!). Yum!

Melissa Azzopardi

May 12, 2016

Absolutely delicious! I didn’t put any mint sauce just because I didn’t have any. Still tastes amazing. This will become a regular dish in our household! Will try with veggies in the slow cooker too next time.

Sharni Krygger

May 9, 2016

Absolutely amazing. I used BBQ Lamb Chops which fell apart and there was a lot of bone next time I will try a different cut but the taste was fantastic. Loved it!


May 4, 2016

Made this for the first time tonight (have only just started using my slowcooker) it was amazing had it on high for 4 hrs and added carrots and beans, recommend it to everyone ?

I personally don’t add my veg in with it due to the oily nature of lamb but I know plenty of others do so by all means if you want to – go for it πŸ™‚
You won’t need to add anything extra though for fluids etc
I’d add them from the start


April 30, 2016

I’m really wanting to give this a go.
Can I add corrots to it? If so should I put the carrots in from the start or add them say half way through? Also if I added carrots would I need to add extra fluid like water or stock?cheers


April 28, 2016

Made extra so i could make a pie for the next night. Both beautiful. Both easy

rebecca jessop

April 27, 2016

I made this for the first time and it’s amazing my daugter is fussy and loved it and cheap to make is a bonus


April 24, 2016

very nice flavour..sauce made a better than average gravy..will make again next time i see cheap lamb


April 24, 2016

Has anyone done this with pork forequarter chops and subbed the mint sauce with some applesauce for example?

Selina Woodward

April 24, 2016

I thought this was amazing. So easy and delicious! I don’t eat mushrooms, but you can’t taste any at all. Will be a regular in our household!

Ally Armstrong

April 22, 2016

Im the kind of person that eats with my eyes, and looked at this and didn’t think much of it….after everyone going on and on about it i thought i would finally give it a try….and the results did not disappoint.
I didnt have any french onion soup mix so used salt, pepper, sugar and beef stock….1 cube. and it was amazing!!!! My family all loved it. Will be making again.


April 20, 2016

Lamb shanks defrosting in fridge & planning for Friday night dinner with added vegetables (carrots & mushrooms). Hope this works as it be first time using my sc also. Sounds yummy. Will keep you posted


April 9, 2016

This recipe is awesome. I always add a full jar of mint and at least 4 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce. Love the flavours. I make shepherds pies the next day with the leftovers……yum

Ebonie Grigg

April 5, 2016

Made this last night for the first time, it was absolutely beautiful, the whole household loved it, it will be a regular on our dinner menu. Thanks to Paulene for coming up with this creation and sharing it with us.


April 2, 2016

we cook this atleast once a well with cheap beef cuts (gravy beef or chuck steak) yum yumm!


March 29, 2016

Didn’t hate it but won’t make again. Was super easy and lamb was cooked well but I didn’t enjoy it and there is no way my kids would eat it.

jo barton

March 24, 2016

Tried this for the first time tonight and we all loved it clean plates all round I then told my partner I had used mushroom soup and he could not believe it I will definitely be doing this again and soon πŸ™‚ x

I’d pop carrots under or amongst the meat if large pieces and mushies on top πŸ™‚


March 21, 2016

I’m wanting to make this tonight and add veg (fresh mushrooms and carrots). Do you recommend I out it on top of the meat or under?

Lisa Soligo

March 20, 2016

My non-lamb loving kids absolutely love this!!! Such an easy yet delicious recipe. I usually use lamb forequarter chops, trim the fat, chuck it in and go to work. Definitely a regular in our house

So long as they aren’t packed in there too tight you should be fine πŸ™‚

Thanks! πŸ™‚

Jo Maxwell

March 13, 2016

Lives up to its reputation of being a favourite, I didn’t add the mint but this was awesome ?

First meal on slow cooker ever

March 13, 2016

I have a small Russell Hobbs slow cooker that fits 8 chops will it cook in 4hrs on high?lol hope so ?

Awesome! πŸ™‚

Geoff Hudson

March 11, 2016

Too easy, soo tasty. My wife loves it nearly as much as me.?

You would have a more watery sauce πŸ˜‰


March 10, 2016

What happens if you add half cup of water :0??????

Mary schembri

March 9, 2016

It was a hit with my boys Flavoursome meal

I find obsession loves and tolerates the long cooking time regardless with lamb but if you wanted it stopped earlier I would guess more like 4hrs would do it if it’s diced lamb? πŸ™‚ But you can’t really overcook it so 6hrs still won’t be a problem if that works for you πŸ™‚

paula jane medlock

March 2, 2016

This has got to be one of our favs it’s delicious, would it be ok to seal the chopped meat and still give 6hrs low? I’ve always put meat in raw before. Thanks

Justin & Steph

February 25, 2016

We make this dish on a regular basis – usually once a fortnight. We both love it and it’s super easy to make. Cheap too! You can buy the lamb when it’s on special and freeze it for when you want Lamb Obsession. 10/10 dish.

Tiffany Huston

February 15, 2016

Love this dish! My husband ate his without taking a breath ?.
Will be a regular in our house now.
I used diced lamb & it was so tender & juicy. Such a quick & easy recipe too.

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

February 12, 2016

You can cook it on high yes if you prefer πŸ™‚
Times will depend on your machine and the cut of lamb you use eg chops vs shanks etc

Emma Rotheram

February 11, 2016

Just gorgeous. Everyone loved, even my fussy eldest child!
A quick question though – can I cook it on high, and if so how long for please?

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

February 11, 2016

Sure πŸ™‚
Choose low sodium products
Add extra veg and fresh mushrooms if you like
Be sure to trim the fat from your lamb first and removed it from finished dish prior to serving
And serve it with healthy sides πŸ™‚

How can I remove excess fat/oil from my slow cooker dish?
Healthy Options in your Slow Cooker blog

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

February 11, 2016

You can use any cream of soup but it’s true it won’t taste as good
However even seasoned mushroom haters swear they cannot taste the mushroom AT ALL in the finished dish πŸ™‚

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

February 11, 2016

I guess the fuss as you call it is because sooooooo many people love this dish so talk every day about how much they love it on our group πŸ™‚
Lucky for you there are 2114 other recipes you can choose from though that more be more to your taste lol
Enjoy πŸ™‚


February 10, 2016

I d t eat mushrooms at all is there something else I can use to replace or would that ruin he dish


February 9, 2016

I’m just so confused. With all the fuss I can’t say there was anything that exciting about this. Why mushroom soup, why the French onion soup mix, why the sauces… Just tasted like any old gravy and lamb.


February 9, 2016

is there a way to substitute and make it a little healthier?

Whatever you have or what works for your family πŸ™‚
Anything from 500g to up to 1.5kg I think would still be plenty sauce enough


January 21, 2016

hi it says 4-6 chops could someone please let me know how much diced lamb i would use instead would i need 1kg thanks


January 16, 2016

Delicious!!!! Best lamb ever

Jillian Flower

January 10, 2016

I got the Slow Cooker for Families book for Christmas and saw that the Lamb Obsession recipe was there. Having noticed on the Facebook page that people raved about this recipe I thought I’d give it a go tonight. On the first bite my husband said ‘Oh yum.’ We can see what everyone was talking about now. We’ll definitely be making this one again. And my husband cleaned up the leftover sauce with a spoon straight out of the slow cooker insert.

New to slow cooking & decided to give this a go tonight, it was amaazzinggg !! New fave dish !

Awwww thanks!

January 7, 2016

Most delicious and mouth watering lamb dish i have ever made. I mixed it up a little and added fresh sliced mushrooms and a little of rich gravy powder towards the end to thicken. Will definitely be making this again very soon πŸ™‚
